My bank is stupid. They charge you to take out your money from cash… - Keeper of the Cages

My bank is stupid. They charge you to take out your money from cash machines when in other countries, even if the bank machine you use is theirs. They don't charge you if you use the card in shops though. yeah that's nice. Going to have to get a new account so I can do it without being charged. I love Lisa for her insider knowledge *kiss kiss*.

Both travel agents in our village are the same. Rather stupid. Went to the 'big' one on the corner first and then went up the road to see what the other one could say only to find that it was the same shop. Gah this village is dumb!

Went to Cheshire Oaks to see what the Holiday Hypermarket had to say and they gave me a Manchester-New Zealand flight with a return flight from Australia-Manchester for £1140. Thinking about it but going to see what the internet can do for me.

Mum thinks I might have become lactose intollerant. Stupid idea that, though everytime I have anything dairy-ish (everyday seeing as I drink tea with milk in it) I start coughing and get all gunked up. Yes pretty descriptions! lol. It's rather disgusting - ick! She said when I was little I couldn't drink milk either - made me all icky. Then got better and now icky again. Evil it is 'cos I like milk and I like cheese too.

Saw Fantastic Four finally today. Rather enjoyed! No one told me that the guy playing The Thing was the guy from The Shield. And the guy playing Doom is from Nip/Tuck. Seems to be all these dudes from tv are becoming movie dudes - rather cool!

It's got Shield and Nip/Tuck guys in it!! And stretchy... mmm...

Banks are stupid. It made sense for me to make an overseas account as I was here for a while, but yes, they charge you to take money out abroad. Do you know of one that doesn't? HSBC definately do.

Ta so helpful now that I've seen it! :P

Nationwide don't charge a cent! it's good! Have just opened an account :D! Shall see what other shiny things it gives. Oooh and increasing credit card limit is a heady experience :D

That's a bad thing!! Make sure your credit card pays itself off from your debit account at the end of the month!! :D

I know and it's only for now - booking flights etc. One can't get far on 500quid limit when booking tickets to NZ/OZ

Heh, god no. Which is why I used my lovely switch card for that. HOW DO YOU CANCEL RETURN FLIGHTS???? BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT 2 WEEKS TILL MY RETURN TICKET RUNS OUT!!

Um not a clue...phone the airline I guess. That's all I can think of. The number should be on the ticket or something like that.

There's a bit on the site, so I'll try and do that, or call them from work... hmm.
jazzbandmusic From: jazzbandmusic Date: August 11th, 2005 01:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah that should work. Do you know if you'll have to pay?? Can't you just transfer it to bring you back from OZ? 'Cos they should do that you know. Ask them anyway

But it's a 6 month ticket and it's 6 months up in a few days... so... I'm thinking probably not. I could always just not turn up but I'd like to see if I can get money back from it ;D
jazzbandmusic From: jazzbandmusic Date: August 12th, 2005 03:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
I guess in that case you should try and get you money back. I mean as long as you're giving them enough notice they can re-sell the seat. Try for the money back option.

I faxed them last night...

Good hope they reply soon

Me too, it's for the 17th!
jazzbandmusic From: jazzbandmusic Date: August 13th, 2005 12:47 am (UTC) (Link)
Miles away - it's the 13th....that gives you *subtracts numbers* 4 days!
From: hunting_orc Date: August 13th, 2005 01:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Which sounds wrong, but yes. Technically it runs out on the 20th or 21st but it's a booked seat type thing. I imagine they'll get back to me on Monday, although I'm hoping for sooner!

They should have people working everyday 'cos it's an airline and they need to deal with customers issues when they happen. Don't ever phone Virgin 'cos they are stupid. I phoned at like half ten last night and got some really stupid woman that couldn't understand what I was telling her and also thought my name was DORA. What on earth?!
From: hunting_orc Date: August 13th, 2005 01:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Dora? The explorer? ... cos that would be cool.
jazzbandmusic From: jazzbandmusic Date: August 13th, 2005 04:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah but I ain't an explorer I'm more of a house mouse!!
