stuff, monday before christmas edition

i am the only person i know who got the email from target saying my information was compromised. but i went to my friendly bank teller who knows my name by heart and she's going to order me a new card. i get to keep the old one for now and everything. she's nice.

my colorado manager send me a really nice gift card. i pretty much cried at my desk because she's sweet to me and i never feel like i deserve presents from my coworkers because i am a bitch. but here it is. and then i realized it is for a store i can't use because i'm allergic to their products. sad. this is where i teach you the wonders of cardpool and trading your cards in for amazon cards. no, i won't get 100% of what's on the card (more like 84%), but hey. better an 84% gift card i can use than a 100% one i can't. i did think about using it for gifting to others...but eff that. MINE. SEE? BITCH.

but that reminds me that i forgot to get gifts for my coworkers. i know they'll have something for me. and here i thought since i had my family taken care of i was all good to go. i'd get a quiet evening at home. nope. to the stores with me and all the CROWDS.

a week from today. school loan payoff day. guys. GUYS.

omg. this day went by like mayflies.


I always think I am so mean to the kids and my teacher and I sat down the other day and she was like, "you do such a good job and I love having you!" but maybe she likes mean people.

HAPPY ALMOST STUDENT LOAN DEBT FREE DAY! you should buy yourself a cupcake.
Paypal sent me an email saying they're watching my card. I'd lost my Wells Fargo card about a week before the news hit, so I'm good there.

The co-worker guilt is strong with me. My boss mentioned he would have something for each of us on Friday, so that morning I made cookies to bring in. Which no one ate. More oatmeal raisin for me, ingrates.
I got that email from Target, but checked my balance and am keeping an eye on it. I hadn't realized the recommendation of getting a new card. BOA is pretty good about their fraud detection stuff, and since my social was compromised a few years ago, I have a few extra steps in place through all of my banking/credit card companies.

What company are you allergic to?
