The Three Minute Post

That's how long I've given myself to write this post.
Last night my spouse spotted a mistake on our bank balance.
We quickly called the bank.
Turns out an online vendor I had purchased a Christmas present on had charged us twice.

Like the majority of Americans we live paycheck to paycheck.

So this is a big deal.

Up until two in the morning checking everything.
And calling the bank.
Calling the vendor.

Internet purchasing sure is convenient, but it also entails risk.

We'll see if they do what they said they'd do by this morning, and back out the duplicate purchase.

Meanwhile, all of our Christmas plans are on hold.

I took five minutes to post this.
