A simple morning’s local shopping in Daddy’s Spanish village.
My name’s Sonic, Daddy’s boy cat, and this is my story.
A 20 minute round trip and Daddy returns home.
So back to his apartment Daddy comes.
Daddy arrives home laden down with cat food.
Good or bad, Daddy unconditionally loves us all. We love him too.
Love Sonic xxx ❤
Talking of money, I bought a birthday gift for a friend on Amazingzon which should have been easy as I had an account with the online store. Hah ! They would not accept my credit card. Oh boy !
I tried a few times then realised I had a new credit card from my bank, so I changed the details and it still didn’t go through. So I called the phone number on the back of the Spanish credit card.
If you speak English ….. press 2
If you have a credit card problem ….. press 4
If you need an operator ….. press 16
All our operators are busy ……press 120
Do you wish to speak to an Indian lady from Mumbai …… press 305
If you are still there …… press 1432
Hello. This is the Hot Chick line. Con-u-out-of-your-money speakin…
I must have pressed the wrong digits. Honest ! So I try again. Eventually I got through.
How may I help. This is Abhilaasha speaking.
My card doesn’t work online and it has been activated.
For your security I must ask you these questions.
How old was your father on his 60th birthday ?
Umm ….. 30 ?
Correct ! When is your birthday ?
Why ? Are you going to send me a card ?
Correct ! Your card was activated for use in a cash-point and in stores , but not for online use.
How much do you wish to spend online ?
Enough for a present and to renew my WP account.
Your card is now activated for online use.
Thank you. Bye !
And it worked ! I bought the present from Amazingzon.
All this hoohaa reminded me to update my credit card details with WP. If I lose my WP premium theme and domain name at the end of this month, you know where I will be …..
Phoning flippin’ India !
And I’m not buying a new pair of slippers online. Just in case. 😀
