    I will start off by saying everything is fine and the error was fixed...

    this happened Friday...


    So I am at a drive thru grabbing a quick bite (chicken fajita pita) too eat before work, when my debit card gets declined

    now I know that having a debit card declined is no big deal and an everyday occurrence to them people

    that post over @ The Bar.. but I haven't had a declined card since I was a degenerate teen so I assumed it was a mistake ..

    I pull out the old bank app to check my balance... this is where the comedy begins... I have a pending charge for

    almost $18,000 ...which was a little unusual since I didn't recall pulling any recent Vegas week long benders

    So I call my bank which took forever... the guy who was clearly in America's Hat aka Canada was nice but

    of no help.... transferred me to another guy who I assumed does the voice for Terrence and Phillip

    once again... no help.. I call Toyota... the girl was nice but useless (i detect a trend)

    puts me on hold and returns and tells me

    'yea we are sorry you might want to tell your bank to cancel that charge because someone added an extra zero...'

    I tell her an extra zero? Really?

    I could have covered an extra zero no problem but I think there was more

    than one zero added.... (I always keep a few grand in that account which is set up to pay bills and buying groceries and

    such) I hang up and decide fuck it .. nothing I can do until the banks open the next day...

    I walk in to my bank ... banker dude was shocked at the ooopsie and after 20 mins everything was fixed ...

    for the record my car payment is well below $200 and not $18,000 I know I am weird that way

    Somewhere there is a payment processor on a bender in Vegas with your money.

    They're hard to communicate with because of their flappy heads.

    I have 2 nieces who share a house not too far from here. They are both in their 20's and don't make a lot of money.
    Some asshole set up a credit card skimmer at the gas station down the street from their house and got them both.
    Cleaned out both of their checking accounts. From what they tell me the banks aren't giving them too much help at all.
    My brother in law had to give them some cash until they get it straightened out.
    Fuckin thing sucks !

    Anyone who uses a debit card instead of a credit card deserves every thing they get.

    Credit Card = Steal the banks money
    Debit Card = Steal your money

    I only keep a couple hundred in my checking account, so I don't worry. Banks don't pay shit for interest, so I'd rather have easy access to my money w/o having to pay ATM fees.

    is there any particular reason

    for entire spaces of empty text

    between each thought,

    or is it just for dramatic import?

    have you ever considered blogging

    or facebook

    given your penchant for threads

    that only relate to status updates that pertain

    to you and only you?

    Toyota are a shitty bunch when it comes to service . I bought a new 4Runner a month ago . The temp license plate was about to expire so I called them like 5 times to get a a new plates. They call me yesterday to say I haven't completed the whole signing process . I went back yesterday to complete that shit as well .

    I did not go to the hr because I was hung over and do not like people getting fired .

    So , this is my dilemma will I get any discounts if I go back ?? If not I will just sit back and fume .

    I mean and what I meant to say is,

    what are we supposed to discuss

    in threads that are simply personal anecdotes

    with no discernable prompt

    in sight
