After my finances were seemingly starting to be more stable, I'm in another mess again.|
Since I moved to West Palm Beach, for the first 2 or 3 weeks I was here, I logged into AOL under my own account using "Guest". Every time I signed off, it said that "your pricing plan for this billing cycle is unlimited use", so I assumed I wasn't being charged for using dial-up (my plan is to connect through broadband). Haven't I learned by now not to assume? So one day, I got curious, and looked at my billing summary. Charges totalling about $350, roughly. I still haven't contacted Customer Service about it yet, I'm chickenshit, but I *have* to do it soon. =\ So I created a screen name under Hsiaokwai's account. Yay, heh.
Then tonight, I was looking at an old credit card statement I found recently. I got curious and looked at my Account History online. -_-; See, I got one of those cards, where you pay a deposit to be used as collateral, and that the annual fee is a lot. They took out their annual fee, probably within the past week, and since my card is always maxed out (only a $225 limit, mind you), it naturally sent my credit limit into the negatives, and charged me a $25 overdraft fee. I can't pay $120 for minimum payment right now. This'll look GREAT on my credit record. *rolls eyes* I'll have to wait now, to switch wireless phone companies. Argh.
In other great news, I got hired at the Wendy's next door today. $6.75 an hour, yippee! LOL Better than $5.25 at the last place I was working at. =\ I go to orientation on Monday afternoon. :B
Hsiaokwai wanted to do something to celebrate me finding a job (as un-great as fast food is), but tonight I'm going to see "Fahrenheit 9/11" with a friend I met online, that i'm meeting in person for the first time. The person who i've been trying to visit 3 times now, but something always happened. His (yes, his) name is Vincent. He goes to school in Orlando, but his parents live around here, and he's helping out with their store since his dad's out of town right now. Anyway, Hsiaokwai I guess doesn't trust me keeping male friends, and keeps calling this outing a "date", when I'm trying to tell him it's not. This guy knows I have a boyfriend, and he's okay with it. The guy is Asian, and Hsiaokwai thinks I'm going to lust after every Asian man I see, when I love HIM. I am not attracted to every Asian I see, just like he's not attracted to every Caucasian girl he sees. x_x; He says he's just giving me crap, but I don't know. I didn't know it was wrong to keep friends of the opposite sex, and I know how some people don't trust this kind of thing, but I don't think it's wrong either.
We have all weekend to celebrate my finding a job. He isn't getting home until late, we couldn't do much of anything tonight anyway.
