- October 10th Robert given receipt for hotel booking on Robert's credit card with instructions to "keep it safe so you can use it to claim back the money later".
- Robert tosses the receipt onto desk on top of huge pile of papers.
- Receipt stays safe for a couple of weeks or so, drifting around the office.
- Robert notices the receipt just lying around and decides to address the problem by placing the receipt "somewhere safe".
- Receipt vanishes.
