From fun to none..

Last night was supposed to be great, I was having fun as I visited my friends' place from where me and my family used to live also. Everyone's busy, with neighbors chatting inside houses and having their routine weekend drinks with their goup of friends too. I was planning to have a drink with my friends later that night, as I promised them that I'll treat them with one case of beer then the rest would be up to them to 'follow' so we could all be merry and happy!;) But as I went on the nearest atm machine, which is also on a mall near to our place, I checked my balance and was glad that I already have the payment from mylot on my account. With me drunk and a friend of mine not familiar with atm machines, I withdrew without even checking how much should I be getting to keep my maintaining balance. With a stroke of a not-so-lucky incident, I withdrew the money over of what I was allowed to!:( Now, I'm still having a headache, both from the last night's drinking and worrying my bank account. Good thing here is, tomorrow would be monday and that the bank I opened my account is just near our place. Guess I just have to go there tomorrow and check if there's still a possibility that they'd allow me to renew my credit, I hope things work out fine and fair on my side. Major upset on my side, just have to blame no one but myself alone.. How about you guys, how's your day/weekend? Did it worked fairly for you, or you're also disappointed of such things that didn't turned out from you've expected it should be?

Something similar happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I had no cash and wanted to go travelling with my visitors the next day. I went to our little pub to do an eftpos transaction. Later, I went online to discover, I did not have that amount in that account so I transferred enough to cover it from another account, but I was worried in case they charged me a $35 fee for overdrawing my account. I didn't check my account the next day because we were out all day but upon checking early the following day I was relieved to discover that the eftpos transaction didn't go through automatically...it went through about 17 hours later. Whew, what a relief. I know it's not a huge amount buit it's more than I can afford to 'throw away'. It's better in my account than the bank's.

$35 is already big for us, I'm glad that it wasn't charged on your account!;) As for me, I was thankful that the bank allowed me to deposit the one's I lost on my balance. Am now relieved and was very happy, because I don't need to fill up for another account!;) Money is really important to us, every cent of it means everything in order for us to live and cope with living.

Aww what a bummer, sorry to hear that raijin - i have on occasion overdrawn too without realising what I did. I hope you were still able to enjoy your weekend though. Saturday was great but come Sunday after the washing machine stopped working, it turned sour. Have not done anything about it until we talk with the landlord. Hope today was better for you.

I'm very much fine now my friend, I'm very glad that the bank still allowed me to maintain my account. Thankful and relieved, hope that the coming days would turn out alot smoother and fairer!;) I hope that you and your landlord would settle the problem on that washing machine in better ways, it's really hard not to have these machines to help you lessen the workload!;)

I'll be going to the bank now, hopefully things would work fairly for me. It's still bugging me, so I hope that when I come back, no matter what the verdict would be, I'd be relaxed then. You should've invited friends or family to have you company, or maybe you could've went out and go to places!;)

Thank you my friend, somehow my problem has been solved and hopefully my week would be fine!;) Good thing the bank allowed me to still continue my transactions on my bank account, as I thought they would easily cancel it since I over-withdrew from the supposed maintaining balance that I should keep. I hope you enjoy your week also, good day and God bless!;)
