I decided late last night I could no longer survive without a camera. It’s been months since my little Canon died, and the hole in my heart photoalbum was getting bigger by the drunken night. So I purchased another, around 2am, and woke up to a smathering of emails.
Apparently, no one told American Express that I like to make silly purchases late into the wee hours of Monday mornings. This is usually the mark of credit card fraud. So my card was declined, and I had a few missed calls and emails telling me about the misuse of my card.
Hey strident assholes over at AmEx — some of us cannot, in good conscience, spend large amounts of money until we’ve hit rock bottom, made it a drink or two in, and desperate for the return of their PowerShot that’s been broken since September, decide to do some online shopping. Don’t make me feel even worse about my impulse buys. That’s what my goddamn balance is for.
