Sorry for being relatively absent this week. Things haven’t been great and I haven’t been online much. (I’m so behind on my regular sites!) And it’s all because people suck.
Here’s what happened:
Last weekend, I was at the bank with D, payin’ some bills and mindin’ my own business when the ATM machine I was using spit out a rather disturbing message.
“You do not have sufficient funds to cover this transaction.”
Seeing as how the bill I was paying was only for about $100, this announcement was fairly distressing, though not, as it turns out, inaccurate.
To make a long story more amusing (though not particularly short):
I have no money.
Why do I have no money? Because people SUCK. Careful inspection of my account revealed that over the course of last week, my entire chequing account was drained. Tapped out. Bled dry. By fraudsters.
That’s right. I have been the victim of banking fraud. Basically, my card (which I never lost or stopped using) was doubled, my pin was stolen, and some asshats in Spain and Italy took all my money.
Luckily, it’s likely that the bank is going to refund me my lost funds eventually, but first they’ve gotta do a whole fraud investigation hoopla thing, which means getting my cash back is going to take awhile.
I ask you: does this not SUCK? Does it not SUCK THE BAG?
I’d say it does.
So anyway, that’s the story. I have all kinds of good karma, so I'm sure this will all sort itself out, but admittedly, in the days since I found out, I’ve been laying low. I’ve been cooking like a deranged Holly Housewife, and punctuating my days with reruns of 90210 and Miss Match. Me and the Internet are a little on the outs. (Though, I should point out that my card info wasn’t stolen from the Internet. I’m just covering my bases.)
Anyhooooooo. You’re welcome to send me money if you’re so inclined.
