Yesterday afternoon turned into a meltdown. I needed to do laundry, but first, I had to put money on my laundry card. The machines in the on site laundry room do not take cash. I needed to use the machine in the fitness centre to put $5 on the card. So as I’m standing in front of the machine putting in the money, I’m wondering why it keep rejecting the $1 bill until I read the disclaimer that it only accepts $5, $10, and $20 bills. So I go home and rummage through my jar of “mad money” to find a five dollar bill, I drive back, then I realised that I cannot find my key card, which is needed to get into the fitness centre.
My frustration was rapidly approaching the boiling point.
So I tried logging into my account to put money on the card. I know my username and password, but it will not log me in. I used the forgot password link, in an attempt to reset it, and I am still unable to log in.
The frustration needle was now in the red zone.
After a few minutes of cooling off, I tried one more time after I went into my apartment, and the same thing happened. Now I went past my boiling point. If it was not for the Losartan, I could have suffered a stroke or a heart attack. I threw both of my phones on the carpet in frustration, and sat in my easy chair to calm down.
Even if I was successful, I would have needed to wait until Saturday. It was raining all day, becoming heavy at times. I washed four pairs of underwear and a pair of socks in the kitchen sink, and I bought new underwear at Walmart yesterday. I should have bought the next bigger size, but it will have to suffice. A friend is sending me $40 to help with laundry. It will also help cover the cost of a replacement key card, which is $25.
I found out days later that the problem was the Samsung browser on my phone. It is very quirky when it comes to login attempts. I used Chrome to login, and I had no trouble. Lesson learned. Never use the phone browser. I had to get a new key card at a cost of $25. Then I found the old key card in the back seat of my car. Well, at least I have two in case I lose one.
The featured pic represents the project truck that I want to build someday. It is a GMC 9500. This is a custom truck because there was never a crew cab version. This one was selling for $4,300, and I wished I had the money.
Thanks for reading my post. As always, Sat Nam.
