Just another manic Monday…🎶

Yesterday from the moment my feet hit the ground at 5am nothing went right. I was gone all weekend picking up my daughter from college and Sunday at 6pm when I got home there was so much to do. I woke up yesterday morning at 5am as normal but felt very exhausted. After working a long day I went to get some groceries. As I checked out my debit/credit card was repeatedly declined. Text my husband as I was trying it again and he said no way it could be declined, we have overdraft feature. But it surely was. So after that I had to have the cashier take random items in my cart and set them aside to be put back until I got to the total of my cash on hand. This required her to get a manager. There was also no room to put these groceries anywhere at this store as there is generally room at the end of the belt in other stores. People were ditching my line as I was holding things up. I wanted to die. The lady behind me offered to pay for my groceries that I was unable to purchase. I thanked her for offering repeatedly but declined her offer. She was also finding places to set my groceries that I was taking out of the cart to be put back. Then she said “I really hope you have a nice Thanksgiving.” I said the same back, thanks her for being so generous again and left the store wanting to cry. How do I work so hard and I can’t even buy some damn groceries for my family?

Long story somewhat short, I got home and there was a message on my machine. Someone in Georgia had gotten my debit/cc info and tried to do 4 transactions of $120, only 1 went through. The bank put my card on hold, hence why it was declined. New cards will be sent to me. 5-7days. Now my funds are on hold until I get the new card and activate it.

People really do suck but I am trying to remember the kindness of the lady behind me in the grocery store. ❤️

….And surprisingly enough having a drink did not cross my mind as it normally would have in that situation… Yay me! 😊

    Oh man! I feel for you. I have had the bank randomly block my funds, too, but for something I am buying that they think is unusual! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! 🤗
