wow, hell I wish I had been there

Well crap. Odds are, I'm going to be in for ankle surgery next week

I don't know for certain, because I haven't had the MRI yet. And then the doctor won't tell me for sure until I get in to see her on Friday. But it looks like they're going to have to go in and screw my tibia to my fibula so my high ankle sprain heals properly.

I want to drown my sorrows in delicious food, but considering I'm going to spend most of the next two months sitting on my rear end, I don't know if eating a lot is the best plan in the world

Lord, I don't know how I'm going function at work. I can't be carrying around beakers full of chemicals while on crutches, but that is exactly what I need to do tomorrow to be able to get anything done.

Some jasshonk stole my debit card number somehow. I went to the grocery store yesterday and the clerk tried to confiscate my debit card and said she was going to call the police. I told her to call a manager first. I showed him my drivers license and health insurance card to prove who I was. He apologized for the inconvenience and asked for a different method of payment and advised me not to use the card until I could talk to the bank today. I called them and they referred me to Master Card Fraud Prevention: Yep, the computer flagged suspicious activities: vitamins I didn't buy, and 2 on-line donations to Catholic charities. AWESOME! Now I have to miss work so I can go to the bank in person and sign for a new card and wait 2+ weeks for it to arrive.

Good news: MC "allowed" the fraudulent charges to be approved so they could track them on both ends but no money was removed from my account.

ETA: okay, my complaint is just annoying and petty. cmb - I am so sorry! Crutches are horrible! Please be careful! I hope you heal quickly. Comfort food is okay occasionally!!! (((HUGS)))

Grrr...credit/debit card thieves fill me with rage. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that, golden.

cmb, that is terrible. I'm so, so sorry.

GC, so someone stole your debit card number and tried to buy vitamins and donate to a charity? This is so perplexing to me.

Reguardless, I'm sorry that happened!! I'm always terrified that will happen to me. I hope you're able to get it straightened out with no further issues.

It is beyond bizarre to me. Apparently Robin Hood stole my debit card to donate my few pennies to Catholic charities. Wait, is this why the Pope is resigning??? Was he in on it???

ETA: my husband said that the donations were to see if the # worked AND to get receipts to use for tax fraud. GRRRRRRRR!

I'm trying to imagine our grocery store clerk telling me they're about to call the police on me. I'd be so stunned I have no idea how I would respond!

I'm sorry to hear about Polly's leg, and it sucks.

As everyone else has said, dogs are so resilient and they adjust so much quicker and easier than we do - but it still sucks. I'm sorry.

I was out of town buying groceries to fix dinner for my brother and his wife (they have a 1.5 week old baby!).

When the clerk said she was going to call the police, I started to freak out but then I thought, "REMAIN CALM, VERY CALM OR YOU WILL END UP FACE DOWN IN THE FLOOR IN HANDCUFFS."

For once the voices in my head made sense. I was FURIOUS though.

GC, did she even ask to see your ID first or anything? I can't believe that if you were the person that had stolen the card that you'd actually stand there and wait on the police after being told that. It seems like they'd have a better plan in place for dealing with those things like alerting the manager and just telling you there is an issue with your card and the manager will have to take care of it.

I'm mad for you.

Then my mom got me a really nice valentines day present but I'm so mad about my test I can't even be happy and then I hung up the phone on her because I was mad. I'm so mean.

Now I'm just sitting here crying.

I just want to graduate I effing hate school, I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I'll never do it again, I'll work at a fast food place who even cares, I'll live on the streets and be poor, it's better than school. School has been the worst thing I've ever done. Seriously.

I'm in crazy "I thought at this age, I'd either be married and have kids or at least be successful professionally/creatively."

Realizing that I do not have either and both seem so incredibly far away that I'll never have them is making me extremely depressed right now.

I'm praying that all good things can all come at once.

Ending PMDD rant.

I love that that's what they did with the money, and that that's what flagged the system!!! I would love to see how that's set up

attention all purse-shopping enablers!



i got my cute orange fake-ostrich bag all the way from Korea in less than 2 weeks!



why does Canada Post want $31 to send a bottle of nail polish to Kay in Jamaica in 4 to 6 weeks, while i paid $8 to get a handbag from Korea?????



i am VERY ticked off with Shoppers Drug Mart today! (like CVS in the US) they have a loyalty program and i have lots of points. there was a "spend your points" event ending today on beauty. it said ALL hair colour, cosmetics, fragrance, nail products and "select" skin care. but they don't make exclusions for sale items or tell you what those "select" items are!

after carefully finding things on sale and loading up my basket, i get to the cash register and she rings up over $110 worth of stuff. with my points, it would have cost me $20.

it turned out that exactly $15.46 of my selections were eligible! but not my hair colour, Olay Regenerist (on sale), Quo (house-brand) fake eyelashes, body lotion, makeup remover.... *sigh*



grrrrrrrr......

yes, i'm writing to customer service!

and, to top it off, the company in Quebec that makes the PERFECT foundation for me has discontinued the product!!!!

Since I know you're all SO concerned...

My throat still hurts. But it hasn't progressed past that, yet. So there is still hope yet!

I'm honestly starting to think that it's somehow allergy related. Which is ridiculous, considering it's February. But my nose, throat, and "ears" have all been itchy the past couple of days.

The only time my throat doesn't hurt is when I'm eating. So...





Rural, hope your throat is feeling better! If not, try my method!

I was just coming to see how you are doing.

It hurts. And it is making me extra grumpy. But, I am so happy it is nothing more.

As for your method, on it. Just got done drinking a milkshake.

Hope you feel better.
