Capital One: The Neverending Saga

Thought I was done with my credit card woes? So did I! Well the problems continue. A few weeks after having finally received my card in the mail, I noticed that my balance transfer had not gone through. I called and they said that it hasn’t been processed yet and asked if I wanted it to go through at a 13.9% rate! Say again? I was approved for 2.9%. Supervisor please. She tells me the current rate is 13.9 and that the offer I had was not guaranteed even though it was supposedly approved by a supervisor. Said she’ll look into it and call me back. Days go by…no call. So I call and no one can help me. They tell me someone will call me back. I forget about it for awhile. Just today I was thinking about what was going on with the transfer. I got a offer for 4.9% that was expiring soon. It’s not 2.9, but beats the regular rates. I was ready to give them a piece of my mind when lo and behold I got a call. Sadly, it was to tell me that the request got denied! However, she was going through some more hoops to try to get it approved since I went through all the proper channels and all that. I should get another call by Friday at the latest….let’s hope that will be the end of that!

Is There a Full Moon Out?

Today has been a strange day indeed. Makes me wonder what is going on out there in the universe! Is someone out there messing with the Improbability Drive?

1. My friend Luke called. He never calls! (Of course, I’m guilty of the same thing) So it was a surprise to see his name on the cell phone.
2. Got two cards in the mail from the ex. More on that later maybe.
3. Got an IM from Kevin who I only hear from once in a blue moon.

What…or rather, who’s next? Kill the Improbability Drive now please. With my luck, the next person to pop up is Mike or Richard and I’d rather not see that.

DVD/movie meme
