More Vinyl and a Rant

Morning All,

I need to take five minutes this morning to rant about my crappy day and then I'll be fine. I'd rant to my DH but he's away and the phone bill would be too high.

Morning started off just fine. A little coffee, checking my e-mail, thanks to all who comment on the post...I do love reading those. Then I get a phone call wanting to know if I've been using my debit card at Net Flix or something like that. Apparently at 3:30 a.m. somebody was using my debit card or debit number. They were for only small amounts but they would freeze those charges. I am VERY grateful to that monitoring company/system or I may not have noticed those charges till much later. So this phone call made me go back and check my bank account. I admit I don't monitor it closely and if something goes through I usually assume it is DH who has made a purchase and unless it is large I ignore it. Well I find a week later a charge for $399.76. I try to get a hold of DH to see if he purchased something on-line and in the meantime I call the company to try and find out what has been supposedly shipped to me. Apparently I wanted two MP3 players and head sets. If it had been one I might have chalked that up to DH cause he's been wanting one but two????? I finally get in touch with DH and he assures me he hasn't been shopping. lol

So now I'm on the phone with credit card services cancelling my card and then my bank getting replacement card and having them send out fradulent forms so I can claim for my money back.  At the end of the day I can't get a replacement debit card for 5 - 7 business days. It comes in the mail. It's a good thing that I had some cash in my pocket book or I would be out of luck cause DH has his debit card with him.

Apparently they were also trying to make some purchases to play their Sony Playstation. Don't think I'm dealing with real hardened criminals here.

I feel better now....I guess it could have been worse.

I did some more of these little vinyl characters for the walls. Pluto is really cute and so are Chip & Dale.
I hope to get these in the mail today to Christine for her children.

Going to go and try and craft a bit now...still pumped up....but a little paper and glue should calm me down.

Thanks for listening today.
