Today I checked my checking account online to see if my financial aid had been deposited (thank god YES), and there was the weirdest thing.
A bar I went to in D.C. probably three months ago ran through a charge on my checkcard for $60 last night even though, clearly, I am here in the TVPNM and not in D.C. enjoying their fabulously entertaining nightlife. I called the bank and they said there's nothing they can do until it actually goes all the way through. I called the bar and they told me...
Their credit card machine has been broken since the beginning of July and they are just now getting all the charges from this summer run through the new machine (or whatever).
They are so lucky that my financial aid came through because I was literally down to about my last $50 and their bill might have bounced or whatever it's called when a checkcard doesn't have enough money. I mean, can they wait three months to charge my card?
I'm going back through my account today to make sure it REALLY didn't go through in July, but, it just seems kind of...unfair...that they can come back and start charging your account after several months.
In other news, I am going to complete my one task for Peer Mentoring that I promised to do (create an email listserv) and then I'm going to quit/move to a group with my friends. I don't need all that drama in my life. Please.
There's a few other things going on I will talk about later -- but right now I just got back from the gym and it's Super Big Gulp time...gotta get on that before I die of dehydration (it COULD happen!).
