The Value of $34.00

Oh, lovely... So I go check my back account balance and such online after Monday's losing my Visa debit card at Wawa incident and I see a charge for $34.00 for Wawa in addition to the debit purchase of $30.15 at Wawa that I spent that day on gas. When I had called Visa on Monday, I asked them if I needed to run through and verify my purchases for that day and they said no. So according to Visa, my last purchase was at Wawa but wouldn't it be kind of odd for me to have a debit purchase and then a credit purchase immediately afterwards when I reported the card as lost/stolen. I explained this evening to them that I try to use everything as debit unless it automatically runs through as credit and there's no option for me to enter a PIN (for example, both H&M and Starbucks only run transactions though as credit). So now they're going to send me some paperwork from their fraud team...

I know $34.00 isn't a ton of money to some people but that's a tank gas or 10 lattes or $34 I could use towards paying off my school tuition and books that's charged on my Visa credit card and not my Visa debit card.

I wish I wasn't so scatterbrained/forgetful sometimes but I suppose there are much worse things in life...

Tomorrow evening shall be consumed with writing a paper for school. Cheers to not "having a weekend" but I haven't felt like being social either.
