Christ on a bike

The crazy people I used to work for just direct-deposited my entire last paycheck and severance pay into my old bank account even though they said they were going to mail everything.

Jesus. I was going to close that account. Thank God I hadn't gotten around to doing that yet... Now where the hell did I put that old debit card....

(Note: this isn't really a good thing. This bank fucked me over with about ten extra charges for overdrafts... one of the many reasons I decided to dump them, along with the fact that they have no Saturday hours and no branches near me. Also the checking account I had with them cost five bucks a month. Argh argh argh -- if I had known this it would have saved me some hysteria. The company I used to work for changes its mind and its methods every five minutes, so glad I'm out of there...)

Update: actually, I think it was just the severance pay check that was deposited. I am pretty sure they are going to mail the last actual paycheck. We'll see. I can't get the last deposited amount from the online account or the phone system -- they haven't updated the recording, and their call center isn't open on weekends or after business hours. I have to get that money transferred over to the new bank -- the bank it's in now is charge happy and I don't want them to get any more of my cash.

One more update: as I am no longer penniless for the time being (though Uncle Sam did take a kidney and a half out of the severance) I have taken down the "HALP NO JOB" bleg message from the side.

I hope your innards feel better soon. In my experience, those attacks I have aren't the food I had recently, as it takes longer than that for things to...umm...process. I do, however, have a supplement that helps a lot. DigestiveAdvantage.com is where I found it. Could be a sensitivity to something in the food (wheat, egg, etc), could be something on the order of lactose intolerance, which if I remember correctly is because of an enzyme most adults are short on - humans are about the only adult animals that drink milk, aren't they - but it's still a real pain in the...well, you know.

Wrong spot for that, sorry! It's supposed to be for "...my cycloptic colleague..." Rats!

Actually, I wonder if it wasn't the lunch we were served yesterday. (Day one of the seminar my ex-company bought us lunch.) It was barbecue -- barbecue pork, barbecue chicken, baked beans, and cole slaw. I don't eat cole slaw -- but I had plenty of meat. Later I felt kind of oogy, but I felt fine this morning up until three o'clock.
