A few of us went out after work today, and when I paid with my Visa check card, the waiter came back to our table, kneeled down beside me and asked quietly if I had another card to pay with because the one I'd used had been declined.
All eyes were on me.
Fortunately I was able to cover it, and I'd told the story at work earlier about Casey losing his card and my having had to cancel his card, so they understood what was happening. Still, it was really embarrassing.
By the way, one of Casey's professors found his wallet in a classroom. All in all, it's proving to be inconvenient, but so much better than it could have been. When I got the voicemail after work, all the way home I was praying that my checking account hadn't been cleaned out. That was the longest drive home! Nothing touched, the wallet has been found and it's all good. Well, it's mostly all good. :)
I wonder how long it will take me to get this straightened out...
*Turns out they cancelled my debit card (even though I gave them Casey's debit card number) instead...instead of Casey's. That means for the last two days, anyone who had that card could have been on a shopping spree. C'mon, how often do you get asked for i.d. when you use your your debit/check card as a credit? I never do. Anyway, I'm without a card now until I get my new one in the mail, and I'll have to change all the places my old card number was filed to my new one. Oh well...it could have been a LOT worse. Didn't catch my (or Casey's) angels unaware!
