[quote=""princess garnet""]Still, there should be a phone chain. Was there nothing on the radio or morning news? Or the school district website?[/quote]

Yes, there should be a phone chain. I usually get called around 6 AM, but I get up at 5 AM so I check the district website.

This might seem petty, but my MIL has had a go at me for something my son did when she was looking after him. Let me explain:

We always meet for coffee on a THursday morning, the in-laws, me and my mum (I call it my Aged Care bit!). Today as soon as I sat down she produced her phone bill with a charge of 0.99c for Gamesworld, the games channel on Foxtel that is pay per use. She had a go at me for the fact that he clicked on it at some point and never said to them. "I dont mind that he did it but he never said to me" she kept saying. HE WONT AS HE IS 11 AND YOU WILL HAVE A GO AT HIM LIKE YOU ARE HAVING A GO AT ME! I wanted to shout after she had kept on and on! It was 99c for petes sake! Tell him! Tell your son his dad my husband but why keep on at me! I felt like giving her the 99c, they have more money than the bank of Australia and are going on about him mistakenly costing them 99c!

Sorry. She has really p!ssed me off!

I know he shouldnt have done it, he is not allowed to here, but I felt as if I had done wrong.

To make matters worse he is round there on Saturday night. Deep joy.

So did she talk to your son about it?

I've been trying to call both my school and the education ministry for two days now, because I have to resolve something urgently about my certificate. Almost none of the phones are answered and when they are, then refuse to help.

She probably will on Saturday. I told hubby and he said that it was a good job he was not there as he would have given her the $1. He still might!

She gets a bee in her bonnet and dont give up on it. Everything my son does is wrong, he watches tv, plays on the comp, he is not interested in cars. They do love him, but they sure have a funny way of showing it. Becky cant do wrong, he cant do right. Always been the same. I suppose I will have to get used to it. Perhaps I should be by now, but it is hard.

OMFG!!! :mad:

This is the money weekend from HELL

Norton decides to automatically update my subscription..I never signed up for such a service. I NEVER do that. So there goes 60.00 bucks outta the account. I had to play tag with them for an hour to get my subscription canceled. Oh and btw in cause you are wondering you cant call them you have to do interenet chat.

My phone people say they never got my payment even though it says on my online statement I sent it. :mad:

A seller now tells me they never got my check for an item I bought. I sent it..it was a check. I dont know what else to do!?? :mad: Cancel the check which costs another 20 bucks and then pay this person another 20 for an item that isnt worth 20!??!!!!

I am so ****ing pissed right now.

Talk to your bank if the check cleared then all you need is black and white prrof that you paid, they'ld have to do a payment research and walah! if you didn't pay then yeah you wuld have too but with the subsrciption call them and complain that yu weren't happy with it or never siged up for it and ask for a refund.

The only problem I am having right now is the ebay thing. Check hasnt been cashed, but that doesnt mean in a weeks time it won't be. And I dont feel like paying for this stupid item twice.

I wonder what ebay will do to me if I dont pay it.

We've had about three double billings at the office for Norton Anti virus subscription renewals, and yes they are freaking impossible to contact. I have to make an appointment (!!!!) to talk to someone. I just called the credit card company and disputed the charges. They (my card issuer) will just whack the money out of Norton's credit card issuer's account until Norton can justify it -- which they can't.
