Not so Simple

Hey y’all.

While I have been trying to keep up with those I follow, I haven’t had a lot of time lately to write and for many of you maybe it was a blessing. LOL

At my real job I have had to concentrate on finish building my scanner for an upcoming nuke plant inspection next month. My time got squeezed a bit with my traveling jobs and building a retirement gift for my old boss so it has been balls to the wall the past couple weeks. I am happy to say it is done and it “Looks Mahvalous”. It actually appears to work too so that’s always a plus.

During all that I picked up a couple side jobs which are about 32 hours a piece at night. Throw in bro in laws truck breaking down so I had to help him with that when I should be in my shop and closing the books for the year for my personal company and it all adds up to a bit of stress.

But that wernt enuff. During the cold weather I had no heat in my car so I had to replace the thermostat(not as easy as one might think) and then to top it all off last Friday someone in California hacked Walmarts credit card site and proceeded to clean out my checking and savings accounts.

I know many folks face much worse on a daily basis so I aint really complaining. I finished my work, I got my books closed, my toes are warm and toasty on my drive to work and I got all my money back from someone,so all is well.

All in all it has been an interesting month.

Ever had one of your accounts hacked?? It was a bit unsettling

Sounds like you've had an interesting month. I understand you're not having time to blog...I'm feeling the same these days.

I'd be pretty freaked out by having my bank account hacked.

I had to rent one of those large trash bins to clear out my grandmothers house when she passed, and then a few days later, someone used that same credit card to purchase a bus ticket in a town a loooong way away. I got my money back too, but it was a weird thing to experience. I can't imagine my WHOLE bank account. Yikes!

Glad everything worked out. :-)

As I'm sure you know, I got my credit card ripped off. Fortunately, no real harm was done. Regardless, anytime that happens, it's a hassle. Glad things are looking up for ya!

I got my visa card stolen, does that count. Boy was that frustrating! Love the fact that it took me over a month to get all my accounts that were linked to it updated. Crap. Some of them I finally closed and reopened.

Visa was great. They returned everything we have claimed. We still have a few charges coming in that we need to turn in. While we didnt have a tremendous amount of money in the accounts they seemed to get more than we had available to us. How is that possible?

Lisa, yes having your card stolen counts. I had one stolen before but I found it before any charges were made.
