Agita in LA

Let me see, what else can we pile on? Is there any more SHIT we can pile on top. Is it possible?

- Vinny Gambini in "My Cousin Vinny"

They keep trying to bring me down...

- Laptop died. Heat damage to the memory slots. I think I know how to fix it to keep running till I can replace it, but I havent been able to for reason below.

- The place Im staying keeps trying to evict because I didnt sign a voucher. Every time I confront them that I did sign their blessed voucher, they keep trying to say "You didnt sign.", with that dumb criminal tactic of holding on to a lie. Of course, they want me to lose my shit, so that they CAN toss me out. Naht gonna happen. But I can embarrass them by publicly showing theyre lying.

Apparently, Im the one in 100 that call them on this bullshit. *sigh*

- Bank of America is again trying to empty my account with fees. However, this time I caught and called them on this tactic. They tried to post a CASH deposit to a teller several days later, and then called everything between then an overdraft. I had to scream (literally) at a poor B of A clerk to get them to admit that they had no right to call this an overdraft.

"Im sorry Mr Pennant. That was indeed a cash deposit and that is a bank error. When we charge you the fees on Monday, we will rescind them."

Again, no money in the account until they (reluctantly) give me back my blasted money.

Holy shit, these criminals. I gotta get away from them.

Otherwise, apart from this agita (on top of having no money or a stable place) Im having a ball in LA.


I need to be a journalist, Im realizing now.

That's why this crap is happening, Brian. There IS a reason for this crap.

Well, today they charged me even MORE money on this one matter, and the people who I talk to are scolding me and telling me they wont reverse the charges. Scolding me.

Thats it, this is the last straw. Enough of this financial black hole called Bank of America.

Brian: Yep, no more playing around.

Shane and Cyn: Thank you, I appreciate it.
