    Every now and then I'll have this dream. I've never spoken with professors, however, it's more of a "aren't I supposed to be in this class?"

    Okay, basically I just went in there and kicked some ass. (Sorry for my blunt language, but I get fired up when I complete the task to a high standard.)

    I didn't take any photographs of my handiwork. It shouldn't matter, though, because I know in my heart that you are not a man of doubts.

    They are incredible. I've had my number stolen twice in the last year or two, and they always catch it before I do. That's saying something given I check my activity online very frequently.

    Have you ever gotten the "confirm you made these purchases" phone call? We got one after we went on a spending spree post buying a house. They called my cell phone to be sure everything was legit.


    I can kind of relate to this. Of the people at my level in my office, I have, by far, the most work. This is due to a mix of factors, including incompetence and inexperience among my coworkers (also, I'm pretty good at my job). The problem is that upper management doesn't care that I have twice as much work as everyone else, and, therefore, doesn't consider this when doling out new projects. The result is that I'm saddled with twice as much ongoing work and the same amount of new work as everyone else in my division. It has gotten so bad that my immediate supervisor, a middle manager, actually stated outright that I'm being treated unfairly. It's infuriating, but I do my best to remind myself that my immediate supervisor, the one who writes my reviews and will one day (hopefully soon) be a reference for a new job, is aware that this goes on (and is happy with my work).


    This isn't entirely true, is it? I was thinking you could be held responsible, but the amount is relatively low. $50 is the number I had in my head, but I don't know if that's right.

    Yeah, you can be liable for $50 but most credit cards eventually offered to cover it all (yay competition!)

    I've had the opposite happen...I've had them just block the card instead of letting the purchases authorize and then calling me (and it popped some notice up on the store's machine that they should call a 1-800 number). It was really annoying actually.... It was almost a year after I graduated college, in the city where I live and went to college (and had thus lived in for 5 years at that point and done probably 95% of the spending on that card) and I was trying to buy a keg at a liquor store.

    It was an incredibly long wait while the store called them on the phone...then I had to talk to them...and it was like
    "someone is trying to use your card in chicago"
    "Yes, that someone is me"
    "Your billing address is somewhere else"
    "So? I've lived here for longer than I have had this card and made thousands of dollars of purchases here without issue"
    "Someone is trying to make a large purchase at a liquor store"
    "Again, that is me, and it is not the first time"
    "Would you like us to change your billing address?"
    "I wasn't aware that I could only use this card in the state where you mail the bill"
    etc...

    Took like half an hour to get out of the store with my keg. The one time I had real CC fraud, they didn't catch it and it was only because I happened to notice it (though honestly I barely noticed it...it looked like a textbook purchase from what was probably the billing name of some used-book vendor...but then I realized it was dated far too late in the quarter for me to have been buying any expensive textbooks...turned out to be Blurays of some crappy movies).

    yup. usually when i make an online purchase that is out of the US.

    who ends up footing the bill though? does the merchant lose the money? does the CC eat it? do they pass the buck to some kind of insurance company?

    cc company covered all the fraudulent charges. I had to identify whether recent charges were legitimate or not, and then fill out a form. They made the process easy. In all of my cases the charges were made to companies outside the U.S., places I'd never traveled.

    Did you trim it yourself or did you have someone else do it for you? My guess is the latter, given the passive voice construction of your sentence.

    My Little League coach always emphasized the importance of getting some chatter going. From time to time I like to remind the people I'm dealing with to have a little chatter.
