Trials and Tribulations

Saturday my baby girl (the human one) turned 20! We had a arena football game that night and were pretty busy. She decided to leave in the final quarter to go out with friends. I had a bad feeling.......intuition???? Fast forward to 8:49 am Sunday morning. Phone rings....credit card bureau calling to report "unusual activity" on daughter's debit/visa card. Hear daughter upstairs...comes down crying...debit/visa card stolen - cell phone stolen! YIKES!!!!! Call Verizon report phone, call credit dude back, yep stolen. Card blocked, phone blocked. The creeps used the card to purchase gas, several times, and a trip to Walmart for $121+. Call bank, leave message about replacement card. Fast forward to Monday morning....bank has not called back, don't open until 9am, daughter had to be at work at 7am, I leave at 8:30am. Hubby calls cell, call bank right away....call bank from cell phone while driving. I NEVER USE CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING...but, today I do....AND I GET A DAMN TICKET!!!!!!!!! Try to tell officer what a bad time I am having...oh, sorry, where did daughter get her stuff stolen, gee that's too bad...here's your ticket, get hands free! BUDDY - I DON'T USE CELL PHONE IN CAR - I DON'T NEED HANDS FREE!!!!!! blah, blah, blah - That was an expensive phone call. Get to office, painter is there using oil based primer, entire office stinks. Just a perfect day! Fast forward to tonight. My dad has the campsite next to us. He has been there for 25 years, we have been there for 8. He is month late to pay his yearly fee due to financial difficulties. I call to talk to them about helping him out and they tell me he owes 1) regular yearly rent 2) $50 late fee and 3) $450 for the month he didn't pay?????? So the $1200 rent becomes $1700 because of 30 days late????? Oh, lord help me! Sorry Mr. and Mrs. New Owners...that is too much money, he can't pay that and you just charged us $100 extra dollars for our dogs! Response...well, we'll be moving the trailor off the site and now you can pay $5 per day for storage.

I'm going to bed...............

Geeze...when it rains it pours! I hate it that you got that ticket the one time you use the phone driving. Plus your dad, after being there for soooo long, they can't give him a break?? Geeze...it really makes me sick sometimes the way things play out. That $450 fee thing they have going on is robbery. What would they be out that could amount to $450?? Maybe new renters that they don't have a history with but not someone who has been there that long. I don't blame you for not going back but it sure seems like a nice spot....

You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! your father who has had his camper there for 25 years and they wont give him a break! he ought to have some sort of discount just for being there so long. that is awful. That really got to me. and they charged you $100. for the dogs! WHAT! that is just crazy. Come camp at Loon Lake here in NH I would love to have you there.
Your Poor daughter...turning 20 should be a wonderful celebration not the victim of robbery. that is awful. DID they find the creeps who did this to her? Some people have some nerve. I hope all your issues get better soon....Chin up! :o)
