Today was better than most days to me; school has finally started, I am looking forward to some possible events in the future, and it is a bright and sunny day. But then, out of the blue, I am reminded to expect the worse from fast joints and I honestly shouldn't be surprised by being let down by yet another, but this time it is a true fucking low: they lost my fucking credit card.

I'm pulling into the drive-thru, I roll down the window, and I shout four times that I want "THREE BEAN BURRITOS" in the loudest civil voice I know. I am finally told to pull up and out goes my card to the cashier and back comes a brown sack with the reassuring words "your card is in the bag with your receipt". I instantly smell a rat and park my car half-way out the drive and start rummaging through the sack for my card. BUT IT'S NOT THERE. But to insult my intelligence a little further, the cashier then says that it probably got folded up in the napkins. Amazed, but hoping that to be true, I unfurl all of them and don't see the golden sheen of my card glistening. I am angry at this point and pull into opposing traffic to make a u-turn back into the parking lot.

Unluckily for them, no one hits me and I storm in there demanding to know what happened to my card. In the back I can hear big momma' yelling to her boss that she gave me my card and I can see him stumbling my way with a frown on his face knowing he is going to have to calm another angry customer. I try to tone my now booming voice down and he gives me the corporate line "are you sure its not in your car". I yell back 'YES' and feel again insulted for being accused of not having already thrown all of the stuff in my front seat around in search for the card. He repeats his line, though, and tells me that the card is most definately not in the back and it isn't on the ground of the drive-thru. By now, I am so pissed off that I storm out the door as I'm calling WaMu or Chase or whatever new fucking bank "merged" with it in the past few months. This is fucking rediculous and now, three hours after the fact, I am still livid with the anger of having to write checks for every single fucking purchase I will make. And no, I don't trust debit cards because they have absolutely no fraud protection. It's going to take weeks for the corporate machine to print me a new one and I will have to manually change all of my charge accounts to the new card number. If they don't e-mail me back the new number, I am going to have a hell of a time explaining to the UT collection agency why they can't withdraw the next installment payment on my credit account. What the fuck is wrong when you can't even buy a fucking bean burrito without something potentially destroying your entire life?

Most fast food places here had to install card-readers at the register for the customers to use themselves, because when you give their employees your card they write down or take a cellphone photo of the numbers on it and use it to buy shit on the internet.

That's right, you are now part of the credit culture, the great devil of consumerism. Real men would pay with cash.


Anyways, I find it funny you would hold up a drive-thru line for a few cents but not for a credit card.

This time I sympathize with you; this is a fuckup on a grand scale, and I'm sure you might be able to make a case against them for theft.

Seriously. If someone ever tells you that your card is in the bag, you better check right then and there before driving away from the window.

Just be happy that it was just a credit card, and considering they're already sending you out a new one, no one probably had the chance to make any charges on it. There are a lot worse things that could happen.

And it's kind of sad if you can't survive without a credit card.

I would've stayed right there in the window until I had my credit card and then refused to move until I got it. You shouldn't let this go so easily. Nearly all fast food joints have cameras trained on every register so the manager can easily check to see if the bitch took your card or whatever.

My point by the way remains: You held up a line for a few cents, yet didn't for a credit card, which many would and could argue is more important.

This is an easy problem to fix.

Your card probably has one of those CVV2 security codes on the back of it, which online retailers require in order to process a transaction. When you get the card, memorize the three digit code, then scrape it off with a knife. If you're feeling really paranoid, you can also scrape the phone number off the back.

The card is now useless without a reader.

Also, unless you do your banking at Mega$hit M0ney Bank of India, your debit card has fraud protection.

I did make a scene you moron. I made sure every single person waiting in line knew that they goofed up and lost my card.

Update: I finally got another card from Chase (not WaMu, blargh god damnit god damnit god damnit) and am irritated by that fact as well; they are stiffing me on the bonus points being rolled-over from my WaMu Gold MasterCard and have hiked up my interest rate an extra 1% without giving me one reason as to why. That kills me; not only did they gobble up my bank, but now they lied to me about keeping my quarterly points and are effectively charging me more money for my money. It's not that the latter really matters though, I always pay the bill off in full before its due, but still, the moxie!

Moxie is a real word "Harold Sakata". Expect some negative karma for that one!

Also I think he means "gall". I don't judge though.

"The Moxie" is very similar to the name of a restaurant here, "Moxies." I can't help but think Vissario always would pay the bill there. Always.
