The Old Soldier got his social security check today by electronic deposit and you know what that means: beer. But this is not as happy an occassion as it usually is. The Old Soldier has been under a lot of stress lately and I like totally, I mean like totally forgot about paying my AOL bill.
Well, my bank PNC paid it for me when the bill hit my account; but then the bastards charged me a $35 overdraft fee and $7 on Monday and Tuesday. I can’t afford that nonsense. It’s my own damn fault; but banks really have us by the short hairs. Oh, well, you know the Old Soldier will carry on.
I’m going out and get a six-pack and I’ll meet you here later.
This is the Old Soldier taking a hit in the wallet and reporting from Oakland in the heart of the City of Pittsburgh.
