Traveling Today

September 16th, 2013 at 02:57 pm

I put in my last post that I would send flowers for my DIL's grandmother's funeral. I've been going back and forth in my mind since she died, but now I've decided for sure I'm going to travel to the wake instead. It just meant so much to me that people came when my mother died. I want to be there to pay my respects.

So I won't send flowers, they will get my presence instead. I have budgeted about $70 for the trip.

It will be a lot of driving -- about 3 1/2 hours each way. But I haven't had a road trip in a while. I'll enjoy it.

I got my Capital One bill this morning, and that charge from zBiddy was still there! Even after cancelling my card and getting a new one. So I called, and I hope this time I got in taken off for sure. They got a rep from zBiddy on the line, and I did something I never did before. I angrily stated my case instead of just taking it! And I refused their offer for "discounts" "gas vouchers" "more bids", etc. I just kept saying, "Can't you remove the charge?" Well, they finally did, and gave me a confirmation number and a phone number to call, so I hope it's for real this time. Hey, it was $79 for something I didn't want and was tricked into buying. It wasn't even the money, it was the prinicple of the thing.

I'm going to be a lot more wary of the internet from now on.

    My DH learned the hard way about the internet. We got taken for $90 and couldn't get it back. Frown
