Much Ado About Something

It’s Tuesday, last day of a short month which is good on the old paycheck. Speaking of that, just spent an hour and a half fighting a fraudulent charge on a cc I’ve had since 1967. So much for loyalty rewarding. They refused to take the charge off even though it was still pending and I just found out about it this morning.

Their response in a heavy, hardly understandable accent was they would put it up for dispute and I would receive a letter in about sixty days where I could fill out a form to deny it and then they would decide. Anyone else or is it just me again? I said if it’s pending you should be able to deny it now. As I said in my arcane post, I do not do well with these conversations, or online negotiations and she wouldn’t give me a supervisor.

I can imagine she’s sitting there having a great laugh after she put me on hold and then hung up after telling me to hold while she would get a supervisor. I called back and cut to the chase telling them to cancel the card completely.

Anyone else on a fixed income, watch their bank account and read the charges on credit cards to make sure they are legit, or is it just me? I called the company that charged me and they refunded the amount on the spot.

It’s definitely a two cup of coffee day. 🤯

Side note: Who in heaven’s name chooses the “hold” music and why aren’t we given a “silence” choice?🤪

Second side note: Believe me, an emoji is better than my actual words today.

Modern Times

The computer world to me is arcane

However, at my age, am I to blame?

I spent many hours learning shorthand and and typing

But now it is useless, everyone’s Skyping!

Penmanship was important, graded as such

Now everyone just texts, real words not so much

All the shortcuts and acronyms reign

Emojis giving inferences insane

I think I’m just an old sister

Who prefers an old fashioned vista.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Mighty

King Kong, Mighty Joe Young

Old time movies sung their song

Giant beasts fighting for their lives

In our cities, trying to survive.

It’s not so different now, as we all

Wish we would receive the call

That all is well, the virus gone,

Protests end and we all get along.

A mighty dream you say, will never occur

But might will win and end with churr.
