I draw out money as needed usually at 10,000 pesos a whack, which is about $220.00 give or take depending on the day's specific exchange rate. On the 31st of Dec the Eagle shat and I drew out my pesos, and the bank charged me for them, but again on the 4th of Jan they hit me with the same amount. I had tried at three ATM's before finding one that had money to give. Maybe one of them that didn't have money charged me anyway. I am in a third world country after all!

Hopefully the money will reappear, once the bank sees what happened. Sometimes when the ATM itself has no money, the withdrawal will still be charged to your account. One bank I used, I tried to withdraw money twice at one ATM, only to get nothing (figuring it was a machine malfunction). Went to another ATM in that bank's system, and got the money ($100), only to discover that I had gotten dinged for the other two withdrawals, despite not getting the money. I went in and asked about it, and was told by a teller that I should just wait a few weeks, and it would clear up. I told the teller that it was my money! I made a point of telling the manager why I was closing my accounts when I did that, and now use a different bank.

Whoever said cats don't greet you when you come home like dogs do has obviously not seen the way my slutty cats act when I return after being gone for a few days. I've only got two of them, and it will probably be an hour or so before I can take a step without tripping over one.

I am met at the door by three dogs and the cat...I think the dogs are really glad I am home...the cat, however, knows I will be handing out treats. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

My cats are jumping in front of me inverted like beached manatees. They want belly rubs, and they want then right now.

Ooh this gives me smiles Big Grin every day my cat Leo meets me at the door. There's a ledge he can stand on, and sometimes he's poking his head through the curtains and meowing at me through the window while I unlock the door Heart

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

That moment when you open a brand new box of taco shells, and every. single. one. is broken, so you have to make what can only be referred to as... "taco sandwiches" Dodgy
