In the perfect world, writers would write, and read, and post cogent words on their blogs. Unfortunately, as we all know, we don't live in the perfect world. Yesterday, I was ecstatic because I was going to have more time to write. But, as I mentioned yesterday, I didn't figure in the grandson-factor!
Then there was the bank factor.
I always get a copy of my daily balance sent to my email, so I can keep track of things. I was shocked to see it was in the red. When I checked our account, I discovered one company had charged us twice, just three days apart. Crap! Although I contacted them, they would not take responsibility for the double charging. I was mad.
But, my mother, even though she lives on the West coast, and me on the East, banks with the same bank. So, she transferred money from her account to mine, and I saw the money show up yesterday. BUT, when I opened my email today, they didn't count the transfer to last night, but showed it would clear tonight.
To make things worse, I am now going to get charged for SIX bounced checks. Who here as an extra two hundred dollars floating around? Right. Me, neither. Unfortunately (for who knows whatever reason), the NSF charges won't show up in my account for 2-3 days, so I cannot go to the bank and fall prostrate before the bank manager yet.
I do my very best to avoid bank problems. Shrug. I guess I can go to the bank today, and at least get them to credit my account to last night. I don't know if that will happen or not. Unfortunately, I didn't print out my bank statement last night that showed the money was transferred into my account yesterday afternoon - before the end of the banking day.
So, if you have connections with any of the mystical beings of the universe, please petition them on my behalf! Thanks.
