It happens to the best of us — you walk out the house and realize your wallet is missing. You suffer through an emotional roller coaster before you can find peace (or your wallet). Do these 17 stages sound familiar?

1. Panic sets in and you search your pockets and bag over and over again.

2. The thought that you may have dropped your wallet crosses your mind.

3. Frantically searching everywhere, you start your journey back home and are determined to find that wallet.

4. After checking over the same three places a hundred times, you go berserk.

6 . When that doesn’t work, you get angry and blame everyone around you.

7. You resort to begging God for some help.

10. Knowing you will never see your wallet again, along with your cash (even though it was only $6), credit and debit cards and ID — you fall into deep despair.

11. Afterwards, you calm down and accept the loss.

12. You try to look on the bright side — at least you didn’t carry that extra $20.

13. You make endless calls with your credit card companies and wonder how you will make it for the next week without them.

    GIFS #14 & 15 are the best! bahaha! I agree man, losing your wallet sucks but when you do find it, its like hitting the lottery (or how we imagine it to feel). Nice GIF choices btw. You should have added one where the pants you thought had your wallet are at the dry cleaners – hahaha! (not #winning)
