Well, I woke up this morning and was determined to have a good attitude.
It’s Friday, I’m getting off work early, and I have a Christmas party to go to tonight. YAY!
I get to work (I work at a credit union, for those of you not in the know), I pull open my e mail, and am THRILLED to see that there is only one report of potential debit card fraud. CAN THIS MORNING BE ANY BETTER?!
I open it. What do I see?
MY OWN NAME AND DEBIT CARD NUMBER.
That’s right folks, some asshole got their hands on my debit card number and proceeded to do a little Christmas shopping. ITunes. Blockbuster. YourMovies.com. A JAMES PATTERSON BOOK CLUB!
This reminded me of that episode of Friends where Monica’s credit card was stolen and she was appalled by the fact that someone was not only using her identity and spending her money, but they were doing it BETTER than she was. (I only say this because I love I Tunes, movies, AND James Patterson).
Moral of the story, even though I don’t have any money in my checking account right now, I will not be able to finish my Christmas shopping very well because I won’t have a new card by the time I get paid again next Friday.
I know James, I couldn't believe it either...
