Oh, The Horror

I know I said I wouldn't post about BTJ again (or LBJ for Little Bitch J, thank you Lindy), but I have suffered the ultimate humiliation due to his chicken-shit actions. I just have to share this, or I will implode.

I had a fantastic, productive day at the office today. It was one of those where you feel good about your efforts and can say you've put in some good honest work to earn that paycheck.

After feeding and de-watering CruiserDog, checking my mail, starting a load of neverending laundry, I picked up the phone to call a friend and heard that familiar signal which meant that I had a voice mail message waiting.

If I have a message during the workday on my home phone, it is usually something like a reminder about a dentist appointment or someone wanting to give me the news that I have WON a 3-day cruise on some 50-year-old tub they call a ship. Basically, these messages are usually nothing to get excited over.

Today was different. I heard this girl say "This is Christine with Todd Rundgren Merchandise. Ummmm......the t-shirts you bought in Las Vegas? Ummm.....your credit card was declined. Please call me back with a valid credit card number this time."

I was mortified! Of all the places or people to look like a total slacker.....Todd.

God. Dammit.

My blood began to curdle. Again. After mumbling, no make that stating loudly and with force some obscenities, I calmed down and called Christine.

She was pretty cool about the whole mess when I explained what had happened with the LBJ. In fact, when all was said and done, we dished a bit about men and were buddies for life.

Maybe not life, per se, but buddies for 3 minutes at the least.

Grrrrrrrrr.

So were you at least able to provide your credit card company with his NAME, ADDRESS, PICTURE??? Also, for fraud charges, did you file a police report? Seriously, this is your credit rating to think about.

CruiserMel said...

Hiya Tug! Good to see you around these parts. :)

Yes, I've done all of the above. Well, they didn't ask for a photo, but all of the rest. And I'm not the one who files the police report - that would be the card folks. You are so sweet to be concerned. It's been a hard lesson to learn. And this is a whole new feeling of betrayal, that's for sure. But I'm not going to let this mess with me as much it COULD mess with me, you know? I did nothing wrong. So there. *busting into "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar" again*

WOW! What a douchebag... Mel you should just hook up with me.

I mean I'll pretty much take you for granted after about three minutes and I'll ignore you for football, I fart, I burp and I have a generally nasty disposition...

But at least I won't steal from you!

I'm just sayin'...

So you're GONNA get your money back right??? AHHHHHHH THAT FUCKFACE!!!!

LBJ is lucky that he is not in jail right now! Or... could he be..?

CruiserMel said...

JS - Woo hoo, I'm getting propo'd online by my blog crush! People, can I get a witness??????

Hor - Lindy - Yup. Though I had to pay it up front for now to avoid interest payments. They'll reimburse me when they investigate it. Sonofabitch.

T - Who knows? I told him not to darken my door again or I'd call the "coparinos" on him.

That shitbag bastard! Let's find him and cut his nuts off! I HATE liars/cheaters/thieves! I spit on them: Tooey!

Sorry about that, Cruiser...

RockDog said...

WOW! That would suck the big one... I hope all works out. When it does you should head to the Caribbean to celebrate! LOL!

CruiserMel said...

Gee, Sassy, don't mince words, hon. :)

Rockdog - You know me so well.

I have friends that specialize in these types of situations. Now what you'll need to do is buy some of this special foreign stationary and get the letters BTJ on it with his last know address. They'll take care of the rest.

:-P

On behalf of all the good guys out there, I apologize.

I think whenever someone from Todd Rundgren Merchandise calls (or receives a call) they should always start out by saying, "Hello, it's me".

CruiserMel said...

Holy phuck. I never thought of that. Christine needs a talkin'-to. How brilliant!

It seems Just Sayin' might have competition in the blog-crush department. Hubba-hubba, Pugman.

Sassy Blondie said...

Sorry, Cruiser...work is killing me and making me a bitchy gal. But really, I meant what I said up there...

Interestingly enough, most people just don't know the real me! LOL

CruiserMel said...

Sassy B - Believe me - you are not alone and I'm including me and most people I know in that group. Bitchiness welcome here!

btw - did you get my email?
