So, on Thursday, Babysteals.com had the ERGO carrier (as most of you saw, I'm sure) and I bought it even though it was the day before pay day. Well, on Wednesday there was a little over $400 in our account, so I didn't think it would be a problem as any bills we have we pay right after pay day, so I didn't think anything major would be going through the account. Right after I bought it, I checked the account and it showed $120 and change. :eek: It was too late at this point, I really WANTED the ERGO and it was the best deal I'm ever gonna get on it.
About an hour later I get an email from the bank (that I KNOW DH got too) telling us that they used our automatic transfer program thingie to pay for the amount that we went over. ???? WHAT?!!!
So I looked real quick and a check posted that honestly, both he and I forgot about. And it's not a check you want to forget about. It was our state taxes check!!! $202. :teethchatter:
The bank paid it, thank god! They took the only $50 we had in our savings and transfered it over and it still wasn't enough, but the bank still paid it. Yes we got banged with an overdraft fee.. but pay day took care of that. :eek:
Oh, and I forgot to tell DH that I bought the ERGO until yesterday when he asked if I got something from Google (it used google check out). He was gonna contest it cause I don't normally buy anything from them and he knew he hadn't. I explained what I bought and why and I was expecting to have to convince him that it was a good thing and I didn't have to! I was completely shocked!! He didn't blame me for the overdraft!
Anyway, just had to share that little story.
