Yep. We fell victim to a piece of shit, bottom feedin, thievin asshole. Apparently my debit card was swiped on a machine that had a skimmer on it. Luckily, thanks to the Text Notification service provided by our bank, we were able to report the fraudulent activity & shut down the transaction immediately. It went down like this:
Sittin in a restaurant, orderin what turned out to be some of the worst food we've ever been served (yes, the food drama continues...but that's another post for another time....).
O: Have you been doin some shoe shoppin?
Me: Uh, nope.
O: I just got a notification of the debit card bein used for over $200 at Payless....
Me: Fuckin shit! You need to call the bank NOW! NOW NOW NOW!!!!! Good gawd!
Twohundred dollars worth of shoes at Payless is a bunch of damn shoes. And this person thought themselves to be oh so clever. Ordered the shoes online...charged came out of Kansas....was set to ship for pickup at a store in New York. But the charge never made it past the Authorization process & was never even posted. So, take that, dumbass-theivin-assface!
This, among SO many other things, we are thankful for.
But that was just one of a bit of a flurry of bad luck stuff we had to deal with in the last several days. Started with getting a Notice of Violation from our HOA. Apparently our fence must be restained. And, as I type this, O is outside stainin the fence. Later that day, our engine light in the truck came on. We're all like, REALLY?! Must be Mercury Retrograde....Yep...it sure is.
And then there was the frantic day where O was on a day long shoot & shit started hittin the fan with a project we're hopin is gonna be a VERY good thing for us & our wresting show people. Again, another post, for another time.
What else....Thanksgiving is approaching. Turkey anxiety has been handled. I have a lovely 15 pound bird in the fridge. Now to deal with the squash anxiety....will handle that tomorrow.
