My mom called earlier today and asked me what I was doing, and after I got done whining about how I’d been sitting like a lump on my couch for approximately the last hour and how I have no money and I hate Bank of America and my life sucks and I’m bored and waaah, she said, “It could be worse.”
“Yeah, I guess it could be worse,” I said, “but it’s feeling pretty shitty right now.”
“You could be stuck in Australia with no money because your bank card expired,” she countered.
Yes, Sammi tried to use her debit card to pay for something in Sydney the other day, and it didn’t go through. Because her debit card expired at the end of May. And her new card was sitting in a pile of mail at Family HQ.
Fed Ex wanted TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS to ship the bank card to Sydney. They ended up sending it through USPS Global Shipping or something instead (for a much more reasonable price), and they have to ship it to Canberra because it won’t get there until Wednesday or something and Sam’s AustraLearn group will have left Sydney by then. In the meantime she has approximately $50 Australian dollars. Mom was thinking about wiring her a little more to hold her over but I’m not sure what they decided on that.
In other news, I want to share that I live with two creatures who regularly try to lick my face within nanoseconds of licking their own buttholes. If that isn’t love, then I don’t know what is.
