ARGH! Two steps back

June 22nd, 2006 at 08:16 am

I made a MAJOR screwup today. I have been trying to call and cancel my gym membership for weeks now, and getting run around after run around. I live an hour away, so I cant just stop in or anything. Well, today they took their payment out of my account. Wouldnt be a big deal, but the $12 check I wrote for a dresser for my son was deposited yesterday (a week late), so I was $10 short in my account. (Insert lots of cussing here). So now my account is $59 overdrawn Frown. And that will eat up the overtime pay on my check tomorrow. I am so mad at myself, plus the gym for being uncooperative. I was trying!!! So today has NOT been a no-spend day unfortunately. CRAP..I'm gonna have to tell B about it too cuz he was going to deposit money today to cover bill checks that mailed out this morning. CRAP CRAP CRAP!!!!!

    So, this is your fault how? If you have contacted the gym to cancel (did you document who you talked to, dates and what was agreed on) the gym is at fault for continuing to debit your account.

    I would not chalk this up to lost money. I would hold the gym accountable, but at the same time, talk to your financial institution (FI) about reversing the fees given the circumstances.. If you are a customer in good standing, they should do this for you...if they don't...you may want to consider a new FI.

    Good luck to you.
