So, Sunday night I give into temptation and go to the McDonald’s drivethru by the jam space. Go to pay with my debit card and get an error when I insert the chip card:
OK… Except when I swiped, I got another message:
CARD USE EXCEEDED
PLEASE CONTACT BANK BRANCH
Well, I paid on Visa, ’cause I’m a high class broad that way, putting a burger and fries on credit.
And I thought it was weird because I had more than enough cash in the account and there’s no limits on how many times I can use the card in a month.
Nor had any other transactions happened that day, so no issue with the daily limit.
Yesterday I gave into temptation again, but at a different McDonald’s (I know, I know…) Same thing.
Shit. Well, I add “go to the bank and get replacement card” to my to-do list for today.
On the way, though, I stop at Ardene to grab a pair of rain boots and a couple scarves. On a hunch, I decide to try my debit card, and sure enough, it worked just fine.
So, long story short: there’s nothing wrong with my debit card, but the Universe is trying to cockblock me from eating shitty food.
