Technology fail
I belong to a small credit union that I joined years ago when I worked in a building that contained a branch.  Now, the nearest branch is 15 miles away but I do almost everything online so it doesn't matter.  My CU has a deal with Navy FCU, which is a juggernaut with branches and ATMs all over the place, that allows no-fee cash withdrawals.  I take advantage of this a couple times a month.

Today, I went to my local Navy ATM, stuck my card in it, and watched its status immediately go to "Temporarily Out of Service", followed by a five minute reset period.  It did not return my card.  On Saturday afternoon of a three day weekend.  I was able to cancel the card by calling one number, but could not order a new one because the automated system wants a PIN that I do not know.  I will call again on Tuesday morning and bang buttons until I get a human.  I will probably be in a fairly foul mood by the time I get that to work.  In the mean time, I hit my parents up for some cash since they belong to the bank in their building.

On a competely unrelated note, does anyone give a rat's ass about the winter olympics?

I don't give a rat's ass about the Olympics.

You reminded me to go to the ATM so I can pull out more cash to put into the hands of anyone who will plow me out of the next bloody flippin snow storm we have coming on Monday. This winter is annoying me and making me nastier than usual.....

I actually like the Olympics, because I (mostly) don't have to listen to people at work talk shit about how "their" team beat someone else's. People talk about the performances and hope our guys do well, but nobody stops by anybody's cubicle and taunts them because someone washed out of the semifinals when her ski binding broke.

I can't count the number of times I've wanted to grab someone by the shirt and scream in their face "NOBODY ASSOCIATED WITH THE FUCKING DALLAS COWBOYS KNOWS WHO YOU ARE! NOTHING YOU HAVE EVER DONE HAS EARNED THE LAKERS A SINGLE DAMN POINT! YOU SIT ON YOUR ASS AND SCREAM AT A BOX OF ELECTRONICS! YOUR TEAM IS THE BALDING OVERWEIGHT MIDDLE AGED MEN WHO REALLY SHOULD BE MOWING THE LAWN!"

I like the Olympics. And growing up in the frozen tundra, I relate more to the Winter Olympics than the Summer version. :)
