Horrible April Fool’s Joke

Carte di credito e tastiera

Yesterday I got a call from our credit card company validating an $8.90 charge to a glass stemware company in Alabama, uh, no.

After a few minutes on the phone and validating all the other recent charges were legit, the card number was shut down. It’s not a big deal, I don’t have to pay for the fraudulent charge and a new card is on my way tomorrow.

But it is annoying for two reasons:

First, I have my credit card number memorized so it’s quick and convenient for me to purchase things online. I memorized it after several times trying to purchase something on my computer and I didn’t have my wallet with me.

Second, I now have to go thru and update my payment information for all of the companies that I have automatically drafted each month to our card. If I were to guess, I probably have 15 different places I now have to update once I get our new card.

If only this was an April Fool’s joke!

    The updating of the cards is the worst. Usually I’ll forget about something important like Netflix or Spotify and then it’ll get canceled on me.

    I know!

    I’ll probably end up skimming through my credit card statement and update all of the items I see that we debited last month, but I’m sure I’ll miss one.
