I had forgotten about them… And was super surprised to find that they all still had money!
I’ve used two of them to buy video games already, which I don’t feel bad about because the cards were originally given as Christmas/Birthday gifts anyway. The last one will give me $20 randomly some time before December.
I’ve been doing a lot of money stuff today.
Also, I’ve found three checks from the past year. I’m like 99.9% sure that it’s rude to cash a check this far away from receiving it. Also all three checks are from people for whom I know money is tight. So I’m not going to cash them even if I would love an extra $200.
Like for instance I never cash birthday checks from my Aunt and Uncle as a rule because I know they a) can’t afford it and b) probably won’t notice. That’s an okay thing to do, right? Or is it presumptuous and rude of me? I mean it’s too late to cash the checks now, but should I start cashing the checks from them in the future?
For some reason whenever a commercial for SingleChristiansMeet.com comes on TV in my area, it’s almost immediately cut off and replaced with a different commercial.
As a result, the TV occasionally screams ‘Single Christian’ at me before changing to another commercial, like a little kid calling out insults and then looking away hoping you wont notice.
And, like a little kid calling out insults, it’s only half accurate. Silly TV.
Also I was looking at my bank account, and realized ‘wtf I’m like $3000 short of where I should be, and I don’t see any deposits for the last two months from work.’
I had set up direct deposit on our pay system, but for whatever reason it just wasn’t working.
I’ve gotten last month’s pay into my account now, and I’ll be able to get this month’s in after tomorrow.
Still, that’s really annoying and could have been really fucking bad.
Being an adult is really fucking hard guys.
Got an email saying I went over my credit limit on my card, which surprised me because I only ever use it to buy gas.
Turns out I went over by a whopping… 43 cents.
Apparently one of the times I got gas that I thought was on last month’s bill was actually on this month’s bill, which means I was in $60 more than I thought.
Being an adult is hard. Correction, being an adult on a budget is hard.
