Vibri marches onwards!

Not the best of nights.

As a result, I went and had a browse on a website as a form of retail therapy.

Ordered DVDs featuring Dogtanian and the Muskerhounds and Jack Dee at the Apollo (I have people in mind, who I want to show this performance. They'd love his awkward style of humour.)

In other news, Barclays appear not to have shown on their online banking site that I put money into one of their banks a few days ago. If it was a cheque I can understand it taking a while to clear, but it was money, and there's no mention at all of it. I'll check tomorrow morning and see what I can do about it. I mean, they must have put the money in the right account as I asked for a receipt to check how much was in my account, and it was pretty much around the number it should be. So... hm. I don't enjoy the potential of having £50 never appear into my account. I have to go to Barclays tomorrow, so if it's not in then, I'll go have a chinwag with a member of staff, see what could have happened.

Meh, I should have kept the receipt stub, however it's been DELETED. The bank in question would have CCTV, though, so I could enquire they look at that if they do not believe I've put the money in. Still, hm. Considerations about this are required, despite it all being paranoia and I'm sure the money will be in the bank very soon.

I'm someone who thinks a great deal before making decisions (anyone who's seen me in a Skies of Arcadia air battle knows this). I really am in a great deal of thought about something. Well, more thought of ramifications and what is best for everyone in each instance I can recreate. Sometimes I'm too analytical for my own good, considering variables I shouldn't. Or, er, don't want to.

Easy come, easy go.

The sources of stress:

Today I had to go to Nan's and go over the post office for her as usual. On the way home though, the bag with our money in seemed to split without me realising. End result: she's ended up £5 down, and I ended up £5 down. She was a little annoyed but said she'd compensate my five pounds as payment for going over the post office for her. End result, she's £10 down and I'm guilty as possible.

After leaving her place, I go to Barclays to enquire about money that's not been put into my account from Tuesday. My receipt does not exist any more so they don't give a toss. Ergo, I'm £50 down until I really get on their case. I'll pop back in there on Tuesday, hopefully the person who served me will remember me and how much I put into the account. This is more out of hope than anything, but otherwise I'll have to look into finding out how to make an official complaint at Barclays. Either way, it's pretty much gonna mean the end of my Barclays account once this is resolved - I'll be looking for a new bank to put my money into given how disrespectfully I've been treated.

The part I'm amused by is how this bank has expansive CCTV and if someone stole from them they could pick up a lot of precise details, but the moment someone enquires the bank stole from them and this sophisticated machine couldn't even pick up what was said and how much I gave them.

So, today is the day money wants to disown me. Anyone want anything while I appear to be in this generous money-offering mood?
