How sad is that? I didn’t need the card. I had plenty of gas. I didn’t need any food. Yet, I was affected by the fact that I couldn’t buy anything if I wanted to. This certainly was a wake up call for me. I can’t believe I was that dependent on a stupid peace of plastic for financial security.
Oh, and try canceling a credit card that you don’t have the account number or 1-800 number to. Good times.
