    When your nation hands over money on a deal without knowledge of the return.

    Forty billion £. Upped from twenty gratis, to stay cozy for a nice exit. What is wrong with us.

    The fudging of Brexit is forcing the trend here, hard liners are positioning and Boris will be pushed through as PM, then just maybe we can get things in order.

    The left know he is jockeying for the position they gave rise to by declaring open season. Now they call for his whip because they can see how it's going to end.

    I hate when the damn ATM accepts my card and acknowledges me taking out 100 dollars from my debit account, charges my account said 100 dollars then gives me an error screen saying it cannot complete the transaction...No money, no receipt but my debit was charged and the money taken out...Fucking digital world...

    Fuck dude, I'd be talking to the bank about that, I don't care how much money one has hundred dollar robberies at the atm won't stand bro.

    Also, Make sure your card hasn't been hacked, They can hack the chips now through your phone, It happens bro, I'd get another card. This ATM Hack Allows Crooks to Steal Money From Chip-and-Pin Cards

    I dont think my card was hacked, it doesn't have as chip either but my wallet has RF shielding to protect my card...Im sure it was a ATM error and most likely my money will return to my account within a week, but I did dispute the transaction in my bank App on my phone...

    I mean, it's possible brother, that you weren't hacked, But I implore you to consider all the security that goes into ATM'S not having glitches like that. Something went wrong bro.

    So the second part of tonight's events...

    Stopped to get gasoline at a convenient store, prepay 30 dollars, I clicked the wrong button on the pump, nothing comes out..I go back in the store to get the guy to reset the pump, he doesn't know how to do it...He claims he credit my account the 30 dollars and I had to pay another 30 dollars to get the gasoline...Fuck me, I highly doubt I'll see that money returned, so I paid 60 dollars for 30 dollars worth of gasoline...ugh, should have stayed home tonight...

    The ones around here take 40-50 extra and hold it till it clears and than it put back on your card. Theres been times all i had was 50 left on the card and i couldnt get $10 of gas.

    Panic attacks suck, I used to have them when I was younger and sadly enough, I'm once again having them in my old age. I will say though, It's helped me a lot having survived so many panic attacks, I can usually convince myself everything was going to be alright. It's not easy though.

    Weirdly, I've never had any of these Atm issues, Maybe I'm an analytical flaw, Someone somewhere has to get lucky I guess.

    That's if you pay at the pump, I don't do it that way, I pay in the store and there is no credit hold...

    At the pump there's almost always a credit hold, depending on location it could be up to 100 dollars but there's never a credit hold if you prepay inside the store for gasoline...

    In my experience, a panic attack is just a blood pressure spike that spirals out of control, like a feedback loop between the body and the mind. A half tablet of Atenolol - a very common, inexpensive, and safe blood pressure med, stops it in its tracks. And the most common side effect is a longer lifespan.

    The damn doctors put a relative of mine on Xanex for her panic attacks. That's like trying to fix a Swiss watch with a sledgehammer - the side effects of that stuff are insane, it's like being drunk. The only side effect I've ever seen with Atenolol is relaxation, and it's a diuretic. But so is coffee.

    When I was in grade school, The doctors had me on Prozac and Xanax, I actually at age 19 was dependent on Xanax, I decided to take my lumps and experience my panic attacks rather than have to take that medicine. It took me six months but after that point, I'm very reluctant to take anything now, Maybe antibiotics if I need them, But the body tries to heal itself, I don't need most medications they prescribe.

    What I have been doing has worked well for me the past few years. I use a debit card from my credit union (or bank) and I load a few hundred dollars on it for gas purchases only. That way if the card gets hacked, lost or whatever, I am never out all that much money.


    Nothing untoward has ever happened to me but I take precautions anyway.
