A Day Of Distress
Got my new visa debit card yesterday which I had ordered manually from my online bank last week. Its expiration date was March this year and I thought they would just send me automatically a new one coz they did it last year. But I was totally idiot waiting for nothing, hopeless!
I waited from the last week of March until April. Imagine I couldn't withdraw any amount using ATM, over the counter yes it was possible but it isn't my kind of thing. I couldn't pay anything online, I couldn't top up my roaming mobile phone which I use for receiving SMS from Philippines, I couldn't use my skype which I use to call my family directly to their respective mobile phones! The only thing I could do was use my spare card and my spare bank account, needed to top it up though coz it was empty. Whatta huge hassle!
I checked immediately my pin code thru my online bank yesterday and it was still the same. Today I checked again my account and got my salary for the month of April. Then Per and I decided to go out and buy some personal things and groceries.
As he was about to pay, I insisted that I would be the one to pay using my new card. The time I was swiping it.. it appeared "Payment cannot be completed". What the f... This couldn't be happening? My hubby came to the rescue and paid our stuff. I silently packed all the stuff, went out of the store directly to the car without uttering any word, I felt so disappointed.
