I've got Pop-Pop in the attic.

It just keeps getting better. I have broken blood vessels in my right eye, I may need eye surgery, my place of employment is considering firing me, and I have been hit again by identity fraud, this time to the tune of over $200.00.

If anyone needs me, I will be over there putting a bullet through my fucking temple.

Ow, just ow. Really sorry to hear that. x..x;;

Man that fucking sucks! I'll be praying for ya.

And I thought I had bad luck. I'm ashamed now. :-(

I wasn't meaning it to sound like it was a contest. I am just overwhelmed and don't know what to do.

I wish I could help. *hugs*

I have called the bank and canceled my ATM card, for the second time in less than two years. They tell me they should be able to get the money back into my account, but it may take up to a month.

As for my eye and my job, I just have to take things as they come. I am updating my resume this weekend, and am just keeping my fingers crossed about my eye.

I hope your eye will be allright. *hugs*

The good news is, it gets better. ^.^

Does it? It just seems like a little too much all at once.

It's hard, I know. But not more than you can handle.

And if you do kill yourself, I swear I'll fly Wilford Brimley in to do your eulogy.

Don't think I won't! ^.^

Gods, there's an incentive if I ever saw one. O.o

I know. But it just feels like a huge cosmic kick to the balls. I will take things as they come.

Geezus, Louie.

I dunno what to say that doesn't sound like silly pablum I got from a fortune cookie other than, um, if Fate keeps dicking you in bursts like this I'll rip her nose off.

Hope be with you, from me at the very least.

My thanks, not only to you but to everyone who has wished me well. I am really trying not to be a drama llama about all this, but sheesh.

Unpleasant as eye surgery apparently is, it certainly beats the alternative.. hopefully they'll feel it's not necessary.

Rather disappointing the bank in question didn't catch the transaction, but as tugrik found last year, sometimes their fraud systems seem a bit tone deaf - he had his account drained by some chuckleheads in Bangkok, taking out a few hundred dollars at a time. (And even there, it was a lengthy, bureaucratic process to actually get the money back, when you might expect they'd at least be apologetic about it, even if only for the sake of professionalism)

I guess this is a "count your blessings" sort of thing. I check my bank statement online every couple of days--especially since I was hit with identity fraud a couple of years ago. I think because of that, I have been lucky, and have been hit for relatively small amounts. I keep hearing horror stories of folks who don't check their account balances and wind up getting slammed for thousands of dollars.

O.O Holy crapola. :SNUG: I hope things smooth out for you soon, Lou.

Urf, sorry to hear about this. Hope you get better soon!
