Oh Great...

So I got back from my perfect hiking/camping trip last night. And just to be safe, I checked my bank account to see if that chaos of horribleness was fixed with the bank. And lo and behold, all of a sudden, instead of having $90 in my bank account I had negative $450. Kill ME!!!! This is ridiculous. The drama of my roommate's check bouncing a week and a half ago really just screwed me over. The bank didn't post even MORE overdraft fees until after I left for camping. This is driving me mad. When I should have had like $200 in my account after my roommate giving me a check for rent, and then giving a check to my landlord for rent for the house, I instead am dealing with NEGATIVE $1,200 dollars just being pushed around by the bank. This is insane. I hope it can all be worked out. Recommendation: Never ever be the sole person in your house collecting money from your roommates to then give your landlord a check when one of your roommates in in Argentina and has closed her bank account and didn't tell you. I don't think she realized that her checks wouldn't work for the new account since they were attached to her old one. This is a really shitty situation. Who can be blamed really? No one.

I'm off to try to work as many hours as I can today in the studio. I need money. This sucks.

This really does suck - sorry to hear about it!

I'll tell you who to blame though: the bank, of course! Not that it's their fault in any legal way, I'm just notalgic for a time long ago (not one I ever experienced personally, I confess) when banking was something personal and non-computerized and these absurd situations could all be sorted out manually...

Bon courage!

Ughh. My bank has done this to me before. So sorry. They should notify you when you overdraw instead of slapping you with a fee every time you spend an effing dollar to buy a pack of gum. Although, I know it was an innocent mistake, but your friend should have sorted that all out with her bank before she left. You shouldn't have to pay the fees on her mistake!
