Seeing Zeroes !!!

It’s the time of the day when the number games seems to loom large. Don’t know what I mean, well I am talking about the zeroes you see in your bank account. Ohh wait a minute, it’s not that easy either, I need to be specific like free checking, savings, student savings etc etc… man I tell you this country has such a complicated system at times I can’t figure out if they are referring to my toes or my thumb at times …

Maybe that’s reason enough for me to want to go back to school I guess. Yeah right, they won’t teach me how to identify my toe from my thumb, I guess I can do that myself if required to, but surely they will teach me to lay on such a verbal diarrhea that if not confused myself, it will surely confuse confuse himself… whoa man I guess I am getting there ..….

So coming back to the point, I logged back to my account to check my balance and I realized I have more “0” in my account than I had anticipated, at first a feeling of elation hit me thinking my pay check has arrived and then …

Ohh wait a minute its only the middle of the month, who the hell pays you out before your biweekly pay period closes in, I wondered, then panicked, did I lose my job, I tell you in this country getting a pink slip is as easy as shopping at walmart and with the recession in and merger that just happened, don’t blame my mind for working overtime .. suddenly all the negativity in the world was well within my reach and then I realized I was looking at the wrong figure ….

The title said …. You have been preapproved for a credit card with minimum limit of 7_ _ _ _

Man I tell you I am growing old … I really am …. And i didn't even have to enter the misery club ( i.e. marriage) to feel so ....

Props about the pink slip. It IS easy. My testing team got laid off last week, but then again I work at Nortel. ;)

Like the aging batman, pangs ever grip us.

The higher the number of zeroes in your credit card limit, faster is the rate at which zeroes appear in the checking account! :D
