This question came to me last night

Is it just me, or does everything get more difficult when you are wearing a corset?

I don't know if it's just the constricting of my midsection that limits the movement of it, or if there are other factors involved. I just have at least a little added difficulty doing the simplest things. What's up with that?

Anyone else have trouble?

Who is running this place?

This hotel I work at.

They put this new POS/computer system in the resturant. They needed it. What they had was ancient as far as computers go. The old system backed up to a floppy and printed to a dot matrix. A dot matrix that always jammed I might add.

So we got all this pretty new stuff.

And I had to manually input room charges.

And the "end of night" button that was listed in my instructions for the audit was not there. So no audit, no close of day. And the guy I was to call about it never returned my call.

I just had to tell the chef not to clock in and tell him to pass it on to the servers. They are also going to hand write checks until it it fixed.

Epic fail.

And why did you call me again?

Conversation with a guest that doesn't want to pay for phone calls to Domino's from his room.

Him: Well can't you just give me the number and I'll call from my cell?
Me: Sure, who's number are you looking for?
Him: *gives me the number to the local Domino's*
Me: Sounds like you already have the number.
Him: *hangs up*

Really pissed. So fucking pissed.

I just found out I have to work Halloween night.


Kathy and I were planning on going to a party

Not anymore.

Well there's still the AngelSpit/KMFDM show. But getting off on Halloween would have been sweet. It's my favourite holiday.

Almost back to good.

Bills are back in order, life is back in order. I get paid Friday and that will take care of the rest of my hanging debts.

My Warhammer 40K Orks army is coming along nicely. Nobs are painted. I have 16 more boyz and 3 deffkoptas to go. I have to buy a bunch of stuffs too. Deffkoptas, warbuggies, big mek.....

And AngelSpit is coming to town on the 30th. I got off. I got cupcakes to make. I got to decide on a frock! I promised them a frock and cupcakes.

Next step is getting back to performing and getting a car. Not to mention getting my hands on that electric violin I want so bad.

An update on my money issues

The funds have finally cleared the payroll company, they are overnighting the check to my work.

So I get paid tomorrow.

So I still have to pay a late fee on my rent.

And I have to pay my electric tomorrow, which is late. No doubt another late fee.

New shoes will have to wait until next paycheck. Thanks to Bank Atlantic closing my account and screwing me over, I can't afford them on this pay. At least we will be able to buy food. Dinner tonight was a mix of shrimp and beef ramen. Ghetto surf and turf.

A public letter to Bank Atlantic

Long story short, I wouldn't recommend using Bank Atlantic, their customer service sucks as bad as their policies.

Dear Bank Atlantic:

Subject: Account Closing

On the morning of October 2, 2009, I found out that my checking account was closed. This was after trying to use my debit card and having it decline. I had just gotten paid that day and my paycheck gets direct deposited into my account. I was told at the local Bank Atlantic branch that my account was closed as of September 23, 2009 and that the deposit was returned to my employer. No one had told me previously that my account was closed. Had I known, I would have changed my direct deposit information with my employer. When I got to work, my pay stub showed that my check was deposited and the accounting department was gone for the day.

I needed this paycheck to pay my rent and my electric, and to buy groceries and a new pair of shoes. As the accountant at my work is tracking down my money, I'm running risk of accruing late fees, going hungry and walking in severely worn out shoes. I do not own a car and my feet take me most everywhere.

Because your representative at the local branch told me the deposit went back to my employer, I had to wait until today, Monday, October 5, to get it resolved. The accountant at my work contacted the payroll company, and I was informed that Bank Atlantic still had my money. I called the toll free number. The individual I spoke to did work on the case and did make an effort to resolve the issue to no avail. They ACH department had already returned the funds to my employer as of 9:00 am. It's a matter of waiting for the funds to clear and my employer to cut me a check at this point. However I was also informed by the representative I spoke to over the phone that I should have been informed of my account being closed and that when I was at the local branch on Friday, they could have released the funds to me then.

I'm rather upset. If I had been informed of my account being closed, I would not be in the bind I am in now. If your representative at the branch would have released the funds to me then instead of finding the quickest way to push me along, even after I stated that I needed the funds to pay my rent, I would not have a problem right now. I'm going to have to pay an additional $60 on my rent alone because no one on your side wants to offer any level of customer service. Even the man I spoke to on the phone seemed reluctant until I became rather upset and told him sorry does not make up for the late fees that could have been avoided. I will admit, I did overdraft my account. That was a major oversight on my part. However, I did correct that issue and had I known my account was going to be closed I would have corrected things on my side and you would not even be reading this right now.

It could have all been avoided. Why was I not told of my account being closed? Why did your representative at the local branch not do anything to help me? Why did I have to get upset with your representative over the phone to get help? Are you going to do anything about the late fees that could have been avoided had your people done the right thing?

It may seem like a moot point for me to say that I will no longer use your services after my account is already closed. I do want to let you know that I will be posting copies of this letter on every social networking medium that I use. People need to know about what kind of service they can expect from Bank Atlantic.

There you have it folks and as of the writing of this I am still without a paycheck. Please spread the word, I really don't wish this on anyone.
