I was perplexed. According to my maths (which, granted, aren't that good) I should have had plenty of monies. And even if I didn't, I had a decent buffer in savings to cover any monies that I may have miscalculamated.
So I fired up the old intertubes and went to my on-tube banking and saw there was not only 1 overdraft charge, but EIGHT, for a sum total of $216.
I was mindboggled, because none of the monies in my savings account had been pulled to deal with this issue.
But was more mind boggling was a charge on my account from GIGANEWS (a Usenet access provider). I never subscribed to GIGANEWS. But it turns out they've been charging me for a Diamond Level Membership for about four months now, which sort of explains the difference in my maths and the bank's maths.
Needless to say, I am unhappy. I need tried to call the bank about it yesterevening, but they left me on hold for so long I couldn't wait, because I had to be in the city for the Festival.
Just another Manic Friday... woah oh...
