So there I am standing in a long line of customers getting some grocerys for home right, all bagged up and ready to roll, slide the card and it says, sorry declined. Well you know the first thing is ooops I guess I put the wrong number in there. so you try it again, and same results, hmmmm ok so credit card the darn thing, this happens at some stores , debit dont work credit does, nope now it says no account available. Really strange, and of course by this time people behind you are starting to fidget, dang, now what, if your like me you don't carry around a couple hundred dollars in your pocket. So ok then you make some excuse and say i'll be right back gotta get a check. Cause I don't carry those around either. Guess I am gonna start. Well since you live like 1000 miles for the store, by the time you get back, they put all the stuff you bought back. Geezzz, so around you go again,
Now first thing in the morning , like today, call the bank and ask what the @#$% is goin on here. They politely tell you, oh there was a breach of security at the local card issueing office, so to protect you we canceled your card, you'll get a letter in a few days and a new card in about 7-10 days. Sweet, huh, now remember you use that card for paying bills on line, your paypal account, in general just about everything I do is online, to say that I am PO would be an understatement, this is the second time for me , last year it did it too. now were not talking a shaby card here its Mastercard.
Now I have to change every darn link to that card in the internet, what a pain in the butt. Paypal freaks out, they want authorization emails , confirmations, takes like two weeks of bull.
It would seem that I now need to carry large amounts of cash on person, and stick my 9mm in my pocket, so I can make sure no one decides to rob me of my cash.
All I can say after this rant is what is this world coming too. Certainly doesn't look good.
