What year is this again? I don’t remember

September 8, 2007 at 1:57 pm (General stuff)

So, I returned on friday with all of my materials and was ready to transfer. This is what happened…..

Supervisor: Where did you set up your tcf account? 

Me: Tcf Lakeview

Supervisor: And where did you deposit this check?

Me: Here last friday, this is my normal bank (Closest one to the house) 

Supervisor: I’m sorry but I can’t transfer this amount of money from your account….

Me:….What……Supervisor: (Turns computer monitor) See your ID number is all 9’s. If you’re going to be transfering money out of your account you must have your pin and an ID number. 

Dad: (nearby) What?!!! So you’re saying that she can deposit her money but she can’t take it out?

Supervisor: She can withdraw money but only $250 at a time with her pin, she’ll have to go back to the branch in which she created her account and have them fix it for her….

Now that was a falsehood when she said it. You see, not only a year ago, I had overage checks that I transfered and I got money that was transfered from the ‘rents to my account that was several thousand dollars without a hitch and I was able to take out my money quickly without any problems. If the ID issue was true, wouldn’t they have flagged my account sooner? And, wouldn’t this had been pertanent info, oh I don’t know FOUR years ago when the account was created? 

See, at the time my account was created I was in High school and I hadn’t gotten my state ID yet, The branch manager of the bank on Wilson where I used to live created the account for me. I’ve never had problems with large sums of money until today. 

No one in my family likes taking NO for an answer so we waited and talked with the Asst. Manager. She gave us a song and dance that her hands were tied and that she can’t approve it otherwise she’d get in trouble with the Branch manager (if that were so then whats the point of being an assistant manager?) She talked to the supervisor about the situation and supervisor said with a severe huff “You can approve it but i’m not going to approve it!” It was kinda shocking considering me and dad were still in the ROOM at the time. But I digress,  then the supervisor changed her story again saying that it was the large sum of money that was why I couldn’t transfer it, which again I knew to be a falsehood (See above).

Let me guess: Is it because I sport the life tan* and the neighborhood which I currently live in/grew up in isn’t nice and I obviously must be trying to scam money even though I work hard at the asscrack of dawn til sundown and its my money in my own account? Shouldn’t I hypotetically be able to do what I want with it including withdraw it all and shit on it because its my money?!  After an hour me and dad just politely left and headded home. 

On the way home, I called their customer service line and they told me that what the Supervisor and Asst. Manager told me were lies. I should  be able to transfer my own damn money without any problems. I transfered it in bits and pieces over the phone, tomorrow, I’m going to my original bank and settling this shit once and for all.

Summary: They flat out lied and treated me like a criminal when I was trying to get money out of my own fucking account. As soon as this is resolved tomorrow and I’m sure that my student loan payments are automated to my Wa Mu Account, I’m closing down my TCF account. I’ve had it, this is the straw that broke Krys’ back.  Gods I just was hoping that it wasn’t a case of them being discrimilatory and that I was imagining things, but it’s not. I’m not a person that even talks about most of the racist bs that goes on for me at a daily basis but this shit is dead wrong and its 2007? What the hell?

On love, loss, tech support and bringing it all together….

September 8, 2007 at 1:55 pm (Agony and Ecstacy, General stuff, working day and night)

I feel that I should give a post on why I haven’t posted in so long. I’ve had a long year currently and I wanted to share the ups and downs.

Last year ended with me graduating school and thinking about, “What now?” You see, most of my young life has been about the goal of graduating college since only a handful of people in my family ever have. Hell graduating High School was an accomplishment because some members of my family couldn’t due to life issues popping up. I went on a 2 week cruise which was marvolous but my battery had shortnened out. I was very tired. I didn’t have my get up and go like I used to. I spent the next three months looking for work with little to no success. The most common misconception they give you about college is you’ll always be able to find a job because they’ll be throwing it at you like Pac Man Jones throws singles. It’s not like that at all. I ran into several different walls while looking for work. One was the not enough experience wall, in which I had the experience just not in a corporate setting with a corporate title to back it up. I would of had more but college it was hard to find jobs in my field in a small, and severely racially stunted town. The funniest wall was that because of my degree I was considered “too qualified” for certain jobs and programs… I mean I didn’t care because I have bills to still pay. Ahh well.

For a while I went to a Bank Training program but found no work aftewards. I was scared and stressed out because my college bills were coming to haunt me. I didn’t want to hang out with friends because I felt like a loser and it cut my self confidence in 1/2. To take my mind off of it I took computer cert classes to get my certification in things. I currently have one in Microsoft Excel, I have to take the test for microsoft Word and self study for PP. In April, I went on an interview and they offered me a job. I’ve been working at that company since then and came from a contracter to a salaried employee. The company is good, with its flaws and I’ll be able to take opportunities to learn things and their benefits aren’t too shabby. I work currently in tech support, which could be called the red headed stepchild of IT. The key to it is paying attention to detail, respect and listening. Most things can be solved in a series of steps.

 I’m also soon to be teaching computer classes at the center that I’m getting my certifications at. Which is cool though I’m nervous.

I’m also currently single. I want to feel a connection, something that isn’t hollow. I want to touch and be touched, I want to be able to connect to someone else, I don’t have any grand designs on romance and I don’t want just to shag someone blindly. I just want to make a new friendship. Eventually, down the line to love and be loved again, but I’d rather not rush it.

But, I don’t give up on the thought that one day I’ll meet someone that’s my equal that I can walk down life’s path with. I may get lonely sometimes, horny most times and sad sometimes. But I know this too shall pass….

I’m lonely, a bit sad at times and i’m not even going to get into my sex drive, but I know it will not be like this forever. And this too shall pass…..
