Things all crazy up in here. I swear, this week.... I mean there is the usual busyness of this time of year and preparation for the Summer Reading Program. There is actually plenty of time, but by the beginning of May our boss gets all spun up and imagines fires where there are none. So there is that.
Then, I woke up yesterday morning to five little messages...five Paypal transactions that I most definitely did NOT authorize. Each one, right after the other, in the amount of $35. So for those doing the math, allow me - $175 boom, out of my checking account. So I call paypal and let them know they're unauthorized...ah, yes, we will investigate, we already were questioning them, yeah, let us look into it, you'll receive notices as they are resolved. But the money is gone at the moment, right? Oh yes, that takes place 7 seconds into the transaction. But it'll be taken care of. And talk to your bank too.
*PS - Told it was better to connect Paypal to a credit card, rather than a bank account, but I don't have a credit card. So, I probably just won't have Paypal. Also, I did go around and change all of the passwords at all of the sites I could think of.
Next off to jury duty. Now, THAT went well. I got there at 11, and by 11:45 I was walking back out, as the defendant they'd called us in for had decided not to have a jury trial and they had no other need of jurors. So free for another year! Whew! So, after the banking issues and a brief stay at West Covina's County Courthouse I basically had this bonus day off! And you guys saw me a couple days ago...surely I needed a bonus day :-) And it was very nice. Even got in a good, good talk with DR.
I don't know...I have probably said this before, but I really do think of myself as the luckiest unlucky person in the world.
See you tomorrow when we try to PASS with our Saturday Scavenger Shots. Wish me luck there...
