Doesn't your debit card become a credit card when you overdraw though?

Comment I Made about 8 years ago

My heater needs a good clean and won't stay on without the fan on, which means it's too hot and without the fan it foes off and it's that or off completely, which is too cold, i have NO money to go out, even though i'd love a good conversation and a drinky poos, i am bored outa my brain and NEED a job NOW!!!!!!!!!




My Dada rang range me outa the blue after six years, he lives in Germania and i spoke his language to him, Italian, which e still speaks even in Germany and he asked me if we can make 'PACE', which is Peace in Italian. I'm a hard bitch who said , ''Yes, but we must build up a friendship again first, and i suggested he start to ring me every two eeks instead of every 8 fucking years if he wants me to forgive and forget!'' That's fair.


There. I feel better now. Thanks for this thread!

Two Year Mobile Phone Contracts; unfair?

Comment I Made about 8 years ago

I have to admit i do use up my total cap every month, and it's only $29. Sometimes my bills are $40 or even $50, but i've never gone over that.

My Nokia is only five months old and i look afterit well, yet it seems to scratch very easily. I cannot see it lasting the full term of the contract.

I still think it's better than pre-paid.
