See, you can't buy gas like that in the UK. At least you couldn't when I left. And they certainly can't hit your card for more than you will spend like they do here.

So if yer rideing on that Thin ragged edge of Low funds , they can hit you with OVERDRAFT charges even when you Have $14.72 Left in yer account
W.T.F? What, are they using the extra and earning interest, or what?

I've learned that I've finally had it with the rules of 'The Island' (a.k.a. Ex Isle Forums).

I've also learned that Twitter is confusing to me.

I've also learned that:

From what I Understand Grav if you go Over what you have in your account the bank will still approve the transaction , THEN Hit you with a Overdraft charge EVEN though when the gas company Credits yer account BACK ( A few days latter )
You should have HEARD the Yelling when we went Over by $.05 once , fuckers hit us with a $30 Over draft charge

I learned how to request control using MS's Remote Assistance system.

10000x harder than needed. *not* intuitive, to me.

Earlier this week I learned that one of the lesser-known tenets of Mormonism is that each family is supposed to keep at least a year's worth of food in storage, for "hard times." This was explained to me by a socially abrupt redhead girl of about 13 or so, who was working with me to unload the truck that had just delivered our new co-op's food order. (I got a ton of organic produce for half the price of our local stores, while her family was getting 25-lb. bags of flour, cornmeal, that sort of thing.)

She and her 8 siblings were wearing homemade clothes.

I was unfortunately wearing my "What Would Batman Do?" t-shirt.

I'm sure you represented an alternate reality which she will tuck away for future reference.

I don't know about a year's worth, but at least a couple of weeks is a good idea. It was amazing in the recent floods to see car loads of adults driving around in frustration ... '"we just want to buy some milk!!!". Supplies had been cut for about three days.

I learned that if you want to make the first turn sledding down Don's driveway you really have to lean way over and jam the steering for all your worth. THEN you can really carve a nice turn.

Also you have to hug the inside.

Store Brand bacon really isn't worth it, even if it is on really good sale. Stick with the local stuff, or the Oscar Mayer.
