so you wanna know how i accidentally cut up my debit card?
this is how
our CREDIT cards got upgraded. new ones arrived in the post. cut up the old one. threw it away.
husband set up company as he's now self-employed as a consultant/contrator (work coming out his ears btw)
he ordered debit cards - for the COMPANY.
new cards arrived. cut up the old ones.
paid no attention to the fact that they were COMPANY debit cards. assumed they were replacements for our old REGULAR debit cards.
so now have NEW company debit cards (no money in the account, can't use) and NO current debit card.
several days pass. day of leaving town for conference arrives. go to bank to get PIN numbers put on new cards.
go to money machine to get out cash and notice COMPANY NAME on debit cards.
realise i have cut up perfectly good debit card. DOH!
so there you have it!
NOTE TO SELF: check name on new debit card before cutting up next time!!!
