i'm back, i'm tired, the conference was a huge success and i didn't run out of cash

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!!!

I'm glad the conference went well!

Oops! Sounds like something I'd do.

And congratulations to your Hubs on the work coming out his ears thing. That's awesome!

I understand how that could happen.

Glad your conference was a success!

Gah see what happens when you try to be organized and on top of things....cannot tell you how many times I have thrown out something I should not have as I was on my cleaning and organizing kick!

I would so do that! Maybe you could put a cute sticker on your personal one? :)
