So everything is nuts this week. My in laws are here, my son is out of school, and we still have a few presents that we haven't gotten. My SIL asked for cash a while back. While my husband and I were less then thrilled, we finally conceded. There was one store that had the debit cards and several other things that we needed. So I get it all and head up to the register. The lady informs me that I have to pay in cash for my debit card I have to buy. Really cash? Seriously I'm not the type of person that ever has more then $20 in cash at any given time. But I was not using a credit card to buy it, I was using my debit card, you know the one that comes straight from your bank account. I have never heard of anything so stupid. The dumbest part was that I could have bought one with a preset amount of money on it without a problem. Of course they didn't have one that would work. Now I have to go wait in line at the bank to get one. An extra errand I don't have time for. I can't believe people can use one credit card to pay for another (not a good thing to do btw) but you can't use a debit card or write a check to get a gift debit card.
