I've never heard of that either. There's something called a "square" I think that you can attach to your cell phone and accept debit/credit cards with it. Is that what you're talking about?
I can go to my bank's website and they have a special section for bill pay, etc. The thing with the email is called "quick pay". I also think you can do it with an app over your cell phone. I set it up with the email address of the individual I want to send money, say the amount, the account to take it from and hit "send". The receiver then gets an email saying who sent them money and do they accept.

jmw, I haven't paid December rent yet. FOrgot about it until yesterday, and now I have no idea where my checkbook is. LL will be at my place today and tonight. I'll have to let him know that it'll be a day or twountil I find my check book. I'm sure he's okay, considering how inconvenient it's been not being able to have full access to the place (kitchen should be finished today, I hope, and also he will need to get all his tools out of the walk-in closet in the DR).

That's what these are.

But if her feet were one size bigger, I could have gotten her some platform wedges with zipper detailing. Waaay too old for a 7 year old, imo.

These are very appropriate for her age and occasion.

I'm leaving him cash. This is just the worry-flavored icing on the cake of stress, but you're right: I need to chill. Everything will get done!

Mmmm, that sounds yummy!

Why don't you just stop in at a branch of your bank and get a counter check or six to hold you over until you find it?

I'm always right but I thought you didn't have cash? Or did you just mean you don't have cash ON you but could make a run to the ATM? I rarely have cash on me too but when I say I'm tapped, I mean my bank account is also dry.
Hell, if you were wigging out about a problem that can be solved by running to the ATM, you REALLY need to chill!
:)
Yeah, I didn't have cash ON me and I was extra annoyed because I had just gotten home from making a trip with stuff to the new place. I was kicking myself for not hitting the ATM while I was out and had to go back out. But it's just down the street, wasn't a big deal. I was just frustrated.

Yeah, this is what I was going to suggest. And what I would have done yesterday if it had occurred to me during business hours.

I was gonna say... if you can't fully use your place, don't feel pressure to pay him! Maybe try to knock some off of this month's rent for that reason anyway.

My dog can play tug-of-war for hours if I let him. I'm sure that was what the dog was doing.

Any cat would give that look that says: "Um, no. You do it."

I've got a dog myself. I have to wonder if a cat isn't smarter. Cats seem to get people to do things FOR them.:)

I like cats too, actually. I'm sure the dog was playing tug of war too. My dogs love doing that.

Oh, my dogs will get us to do stuff for them. We keep their water bowl outside and let's just say, they never fail to let me know when they are out of water, lol. They get fed first thing in the morning and if you don't get up to feed them at 6:30, they will let you know they are hungry. IN the summer time, a lot of times we hang out outside listening to music at night and the dogs are often times out. Now, anytime my Teddy hears me playing music in the house, especially in the evening, he starts barking immediately 'cause he associates music with hanging out with me, and he wants to come out by me. When he doesn't want to go into the dog room, he jumps up on the same couch cushion every time rolls over and gently paws at you.

Moon: I may have to!

Everybody: I was going through my receipts to attach them to things I bought for the charity thing at work this Christmas (instead of adopt-a-family, we have six individuals to buy for). Turns out, the woman at Kohl's didn't ring up the watch I bought for one person, or the silver hoop earrings I bought Friday night and wore all weekend.

I bought four things -- a blanket, a set of sheets, the watch, and a pair of earrings, and the clerk missed half.

There's a particular song (some rap song) that my kid plays that the dog starts dancing with him immediately when he hears it. I should film it and put it on youtube. It's hilarious.

Yeah, you should.

My kids play mine craft and have built a huge pyramid and a huge castle (I helped them lay out the foundations just for symmetry). I was maybe going to post it on youtube for them.

I bet. I like that show. I've found it's usually not the dogs who are the problem tho, but the dumb owners.

What Toj said abuot teh bank service... i've seen commercials for Chase, and i think Bank of America has it too... any "major" bank i think can do it.

my mom has to raise cain wiht the bank my grandmother uses. she just found out that the bank hasn't been paying the utility bills she's entered into their online system. this is a smaller community bank (used to be named for a local landmark that PE & Squishy would nkow well), and shes been complaining about the interface the whole time. that may become a moot point, thoguh, if thsi doesn't get cleared up. there's enough in that bank to make them stand up and take notice, we think, should someone make a stink about the service and long term relationship and threaten to move the assets.

the more i realize it, the more spoiled i think we (as in hubby & me) are for using a large bank and an on-line only bank. yes, there are some fees to it, but we nkwo how to play the games and not get strangled by them

Nice! Pretty sure they can't legally back that up, but it's a start.
