14:04 - took they day off to sort out all the financial hassles from moving bank accounts. Had to do this because I found out that my old bank decided to put that account in limbo, so this week has been a rush job to manually switch across all the direct debits. Nationwide (my new bank) were also told my previous account didn't exist, so their system couldn't do it automatically. A morning of last minute 'can I pay please' to various suppliers and re-setting up of new direct debits. All because my previous bank are crapola of the highest order. But at least I'm rid of them now.
Also found out my brand spanking new bank card is a bit knackered. I can take cash out, I can pay online .. but I can't use any chip & pin machines as it's permanently locked. Found out (luckily on my day off) as I bounced between Orange and Nationwide. Ended up paying cash for this month's bill.
Then, to top off a few hours of 'grrrr', I went into CEX with the £72-worth of vouchers ready to buy that lovely LED Samsung 22" TV that was in their window .. only to find out that it was a monitor only. No inputs for component, SCART or HDMI (except via DVI lead).
Now, to balance karma, something *has* to go right! Please?
