You took your credit card out of your pocket to put it back in your wallet. In the process, you dropped it. But all was not lost, because you heard where it landed and then, you searched a small area at a time until you found it. Nice, those are just a few of the things you'll be learning here to help you safely and more quickly find things that have been dropped or misplaced.
First off, when you drop something, listen to hear where it lands. Of course, on a carpeted surface, things will be harder to hear, but they're also less likely to go as far like they could on a hard surface. If you hear it drop right beside you, squat straight down at the knees or kneel right where you're standing. Be sure not to bend at the waist and risk bumping your head into something. For more tips like that one to help you move around safely, check out our Protective Techniques workshop.
