Credit Card Says No

Recommended Posts

Over the weekend, I had the refund money from ARK sitting in my Steam Wallet.  Hmm, what to get? I know, Isle Of Wight Add-On for Train Simulator, I just needed an extra £1.20 to complete the purchase but the transaction was declined. I tried again. Declined. And again. Grrrr.


This morning, I had a phone call from SWMBO which went like this:


SWMBO: The Credit Card company has called asking about fraudulent activity on the account; a £1.20 transaction that was declined.
Me: Yep, that was me. I tried to buy a train set on Steam and it failed.


There was a pause. 


Then she started laughing. A laugh that didn't stop but I'm sure I heard the words 'train','you','set','b*****d','a','sad' and some other words which I couldn't make out. Apparently, me buying a train set is something that should be mocked! Well, I'm glad it made her laugh :)


The card company will be calling me later to confirm the transaction was real but SWMBO warned me not to say what I was buying in case they thought it was funny. I really don't care; I'm too old to care about such things!


SWMBO eventually calmed down but she did finish with "If the internet had been invented before we met, we would have never got married and I'd be on my own.


Don't tease me with thoughts like that woman :P

Lol Elsie, just imagine your credit card phoning up and asking if you bought an electronic train set

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
      And so...
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
