OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP.

Admittedly, the show isn't until October 27, and tickets aren't even posted on the venue's site yet, BUT STILL.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Due to money concerns, I had to miss him with the Monkees here a couple weeks ago.)

And in stupid money events, I had thought I carefully kept track of my purchases this weekend, yet somehow they managed to land at the bank in the EXACT wrong order, so instead of one overdraft fee for the last thing (I forgot about Netflix), I was socked with FIVE overdraft fees. I'm not still sure how that worked, since as far as I can tell, there was money in there to cover at least three of them, but the last time something like this happened I was given an explanation for "order of charges" that only someone who works for a bank could understand and mostly I just want to bang my head on the floor. I pulled money out of savings to cover it and then opted OUT of the overdraft protection, so the next time my debit card will just DECLINE if I've added wrong. Phoo.

I have to wait for him to confirm the theatre, I suppose... :)

Yikes for bank woes! I think their spiel means, "We put them through in the order that will make us the most money." But with more words.

Good luck with the tickets! I have a feeling I'll be hearing a "Squee!" from wildrider soon.

Yeah. :P

I hope so. I suppose I need to wait for him to confirm the theatre, but just seeing "Phoenix" on the top of the list made me start with the squee-ing!

Yeah, the first time it happened (for significantly less money), I did call and they talked me through how it worked, and as I said it was just convoluted enough to be annoying. And then, because it was still a new process, they credited me back two of the charges -- but they won't do it this time. :P

Teach me to think I had a little money!

The last time my bank did it to me I pointed out that there was money in there for this than and the other thing and asked them to show me where the overdraft was. they couldn't. they did pay me back probably just to get me out of the bank

I might try and see if I can get at least one of them refunded.

Urgh.

JEALOUS.

Neither he, nor the Monkees, are touring anywhere close enough that I could afford to go.

*pouts*

But that would be such an awesome thing to do.

The Monkees were at Mesa Arts Center, but we literally had no money for it.

I hope this isn't too expensive. I absolutely MUST go.

Banks, gaaah. Yes, they try to screw their customers. :(

But hugs and good thoughts for seeing the show!
