I can't even buy things WITH MY OWN GODDAMN CREDIT CARD without them flagging me for suspicious activity. >:(
Me: I'm trying to buy a bus ticket and my credit card keeps getting denied. Why.
Credit Union: Oh, because the bus company is out of Georgia and that's suspicious. You should have told us you were traveling!
Me: But I'm NOT traveling...yet. And I'm going to WISCONSIN from MICHIGAN, which isn't even that far. And even if I'd told you that, wouldn't you have flagged it anyway, since Georgia isn't a part of the equation?
Credit Union: Well, even if it's not that far, you never know when credit card fraud might strike.
Me: Someone purchased stuff in New York City on my card last month and I haven't been in New York since August. Why didn't that get flagged?
Credit Union: ...Well, you should be able to buy your bus ticket now.
Me: Okay, thanks.
[tries to buy bus ticket]
[still gets denied]
THE SAGA CONTINUES, EPISODE 2
Credit Union: Hi, we're calling because there was a failed attempted purchase multiple times and we suspect fraud. Can you verify the purchase?
Me: No, because I wasn't able to actually make it. That was certainly me attempting, though. I already called you guys, and you said you fixed it, but clearly that's not the case.
Credit Union: ...Weird. Well, you should call us again and try to sort that out.
GUYS I'M ON EPISODE 4 OF THIS DUMB SHOW, and they just introduced several new Credit Union characters and one irate, completely unhelpful bus employee. EPISODE 4 IS A CLIFFHANGER.
Can someone please just cancel this before we get a whole season order. >.>
