I'm coming to you tonight from my room in the Lodge at the lovely General Butler State Park in Carrollton, KY. I just had a tasty dinner at Taco Bell. This TB is absolutely the best TB that I have ever been to. The people who take your order and make your food are unbelievable friendly, and the food is terrific. These folks know how to load a taco supreme and how to overload nachos. Yum! So much for my diet (as if I've been following it anyway).
I would have made a picture of my food for the blog tonight, but someone forgot to bring my camera. Since I drove down here alone, that would be me. Oh well.
What a week it's been. I caught a rock in my car windshield. It made a nice 7-inch crack that increased by about 2 more inches as I drove to work this morning. The nice man from Ryan's All Glass came to my office and popped in a new windshield. Thanks!
And I learned today for sure that I am a victim of identity fraud. Warning: I'm about to call someone a very bad name in capital letters. Some ASSWIPE in Chicago got hold of my debit card number and helped him or herself to 2 pairs of Nikes ($164.00 total) and then had lunch on me at Subway ($18.77). How this person could purchase these things without actually having my debit card to swipe is a mystery to me. Nevertheless, this jerk yanked close to $200.00 out of my checking account. I am not a happy camper. I had to cancel my debit card. The credit union put a block on my debit card number. I have to wait until next week for a new debit card. And then I get to fill out 3 forms (one for each fraudulent transaction) to dispute the transactions and, hopefully, get my money back.
I hope whoever absconded with my hard-earned money gets the worst case of crotch rot in recorded history and has to pee out the navel.
Wow, that was incredibly satisfying.
When I get back home on Sunday, I will be changing every sign-on ID and every password everywhere that I have. I will also be setting up a new personal e-mail address and getting that out to my family and friends. And from now on, I will not use my debit card for online purchases. I will use just my one and only credit card. At least it's not tied to my checking account and I'm only liable for the first $50.00.
A hard lesson to learn, but at least it was a $200.00 lesson instead of a $2000.00 one.
Be careful out there!
