Flex card troubles

March 3rd, 2015 at 06:14 am

I tried to use my flex debit card at the pharmacy last night, and it was denied. So I put it on Discover ($15) and I'll have to get a reimbursement. But I was troubled that the card was denied -- it's the first time I tried to use it this year.

Well, this morning I have an email from our FORMER flex benefits company saying they didn't have an account for me and that was the reason it was denied. I used my old card! The trouble is, I have no idea where the new card is, or if I even got it. There is a pile of mail/papers in box under my desk at home, and I'll go through them tonight. If it's not there, I have to figure out how to get a card reissued.

This morning I woke up to sunlight. Boy, that means trouble. It means I didn't set the alarm. I threw on some clothes and got in my car, since catching the train was a lost cause. Luckily, I did make it in decent time, and the roads weren't as bad as they predicted. We are having a "wintry mix" day, but by the time I go home the temperature is supposed to be above freezing, so I think I will just be dealing with slop. I can deal with slop.

I did not hear from my museum job contact, so I sent her an email today suggesting that we meet sometime for dinner or lunch, so we can talk privately. I was out of the office a lot yesterday, so she might have called and decided not to leave a message.

We had a baby shower at work yesterday, so there is LOTS of leftover food today. I don't anticipate having to buy any lunch! Which is good, since I didn't have time to pack one!

    I agree! I love the flex card. Three days before I left for the UK, DD had an emergency root canal. The endodontist wanted 100 percent payment before he'd do the root canal, and I was thrilled to have the card on hand. But there went 50 percent of the flex spending for the year.
