One of the signs that it’s going to be an interesting Saturday is when you’re checking out the credit card transactions history and see a $1000 purchase you haven’t made. After I said a bunch of M-rated words regarding all that, I reached the store and they didn’t find anything related to my phone number, name or even this credit card. Considering that it was the first time I got involved in a credit card fraud, let’s say, face to face, it was a bit stressful. Luckily, everything turned out to be a bit easier than expected. I called the bank, they asked a few questions regarding other transactions on the card (there were more unauthorized ones I knew nothing about because they were blocked automatically), happily stated that the card had been compromised, would be blocked, money refunded and I’ll get a new one.
Later Rob picked me up and we set off to Hamilton, to my first big football game. This one =) We were lucky because the game had everything we could think of. It had rushing TDs, passing TDs, a successful fake field goal play, interceptions, crazy plays with lateral passes, missed extra point kicks. And, of course, an impressive comeback by the TiCats, which were behind 15 points after the 3rd quarter — and eventually won by a single PAT!
What a typical play looks like when you’re at the stadium:
