Defeated, addendum

March 7, 2008

Apparently, the bad day wasn’t going to end with the overdraft fees.

Coworker 3 got really sick yesterday and didn’t have a ride home, so I left the office at the same time to give him a lift from the train station.

An hour after I’d dropped him off at home and my dad off at work, I headed to Wamu to deposit some checks that I’d just gotten. And I was using the additional ATM around a dark corner of the bank building, which is creepy enough, when some guy came and stood directly behind me where I couldn’t see him, instead of standing in line where you’re supposed to around the corner. And the Wamu card in my wallet was expired. I took that, and the creepy guy behind me, as a sign to just get out of there.

Only to discover that my mom had gotten another flat tire driving my car. This is the second one in two weeks, the SIXTH one in two years.

Had to go home, pick up the right card, and head back out to other Wamu in town.

And at the less creepy drive-up ATM, the first of my three checks were deposited, and the other two were rejected because I’d “reached my daily limit.” ???? There’s a limit on how many deposits I can make??? I got really hot, but it was almost 8 pm by then, and there was nothing I could do except yell at the machine. So I did. At least I’d deposited the checks in order from greatest to smallest amounts, so it covered the overdrafted amounts and then some.

Finally, upon getting home, I discovered that my old puppy is just failing. He’s not eating anymore, and I’m going to have to make the appointment to take him in to the vet. For you know what. Just thinking it is breaking my heart.

I know I’m not defeated, but it sure feels like it.

At least today’s another day.

    So sorry life is throwing this many challenges at you at once. Saying goodbye to a beloved dog can be very difficult indeed. Hugs.

  4. 🙁 V. sorry about your pup 🙁

  5. Oh no, oh no, oh no. That certainly is a horrible day, following an already bad time of it. It’s awful the way small inconveniences (like the ATM thing and flat tire) can exacerbate an already horrible day.

    Well, I’m thinking of you. I really hope everything gets better. I don’t know how you feel about religion but the old adage, “God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle.” usually helps me a little bit. Small comforts. Go get your favorite movie and food and cry. Alot.
