Yeah unless you had some really good memories i would avoid that gathering. Especially the whole stolen cat thing and the ex-couple. Doesn't sound like a good time. What's wrong with hanging out with California guy by himself?

Today i finally decided that it's time to seriously start talking to a lawyer. I've been stalling, trying to see if we could settle this matter without having to get lawyers involved but i just don't think that's going to happen anymore. A few days after the event happened i spoke to the director of our school and she informed me that he was willing to try and drop the charges if i agreed not to sue. I ended up sending him a message a few days later telling him that if he went to the police and told them what actually happened that night and try and see what he could do about dropping the charges, we could both move on with our lives and pretend none of this ever happened (although i'm pretty sure he would have gotten in a lot of shit). I added that he was more than welcome to stop by the apartment and pick up his stuff whenever he wanted, all he has to do is let me know when so i can make sure there's someone there with me (just as a witness in case he tries to do any of his shit again). As i expected he never replied. He has too much pride. I decided to give him a few days though. 

Yesterday at school my instructor asked me how the whole situation is going, which i thought was kinda weird. Told him it's just been a bit frustrating, but i'm dealing with it. So he randomly asks me if i was drunk that night, which i thought was strange. I told him that i haven't had an alcoholic beverage in about 2 months, so no, i wasn't drunk. He told me that him and my roommate's instructors are friends, and my roommate obviously discussed the situation with his instructor, and then the two instructors talked about it. Long story short, apparently my roommate has been telling his instructor (and god knows how many other people) that i was drunk that night and that's the reason i got so aggressive with him. 

 

I'm pretty sure that's like the 3rd variation of the story i've heard now, which honestly is great news for me. I don't think this kid understands that the more he keeps talking and the more he keeps lying, the weaker his case gets against me because if i was drunk it would have been in the police report. I actually had to stop buying beer for myself because he kept on begging to buy him alcohol and when i refused he would steal my beer. 

 

So basically we went from him wanting to drop charges to him deciding he wanted to lie some more. I can't wait to see this kid in court.

Only reason i waited as long as i did was because he was thinking about tryong to get the charges dropped, and i wanted to see if it was going to be possible. I don't want to spend money on a lawyer for no reason. And right now it's sort of money i don't have. Everything i had saved up is going towards my flying. So i'm pretty much broke. But now i really don't have much of a choice anyway.

So today I finally got my money back from this checking account I tried to open a while ago. Who know it had to be so complicated?

 

I opened an account at Citibank one weekend, and everything appeared to go fine, with them telling me it would be processed shortly. Sure enough, Monday it was done and I was able to log in. I was also able to transfer a significant amount of money in.

 

I still had not received my debit card the next weekend, so I called and they sent it. The following weekend I went to try to withdraw money and it wouldn't work ("invalid account type"). I called and they said it was blocked. After some prodding they told me I couldn't take money out because my address was not verified.

 

I wasn't in any hurry so the next weekend I got a utility statement and mailed that over to them. Unfortunately it took 8 (??) business days + 2 Saturdays for my letter to get to them. By that time, it was "too late" and they had closed my account.

 

Apparently the government has a rule that checking accounts need to have a verified address within 30 days, which is not only a silly rule in the scheme of things but one that I was conveniently not told about in any of my conversations. So they're supposed to give me the money back, obviously. I call up and ask how I will get it back. To my address. Which one? The one they were unable to verify. OK then..

 

Today was the 10th business day (and they promised to send it back in no more than 10) and I was about to write some complaints this weekend when I found it's been direct deposited into my original checking account that I sent it from (today).

 

So if they ever start wondering why Americans don't save money...

@Arceus I deal with bank regulations fairly regularly and most of their laws are absolutely stupid. I think it was Citizens United that [bleep]ed everything up? All my finance people at work blame it on something around 2002, but i cant remember what Act it was exactly. Patriot Act? Everything requires an EIN and shit. Anyways...

 

Idk bottom line is- banks are a scam and shitty and they need to admit that they don't work

I'm sure that's an equal pain, but that seems like a different issue. I am a citizen and have a social - the hangup was address.

 

Nominally, it's so the government can seize assets if they suspect fraud or money laundering - they need to show account X is tied to address Y of person Z who is not paying their taxes or is doing something else fishy.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I've played about an hour of cowboy shooty. All I have to say is that I like the menus, HUDs and snow, because I haven't seen much else.

 

That sounds like a go at the game, but it's not, I just love stuffing around in the options as soon as I can.

The good ol' RDR2 indeed. Can't really play it on a pc, you know ;)

I love the hunting and the special hunting outfits. Those things look sick.

So we were told in no uncertain terms that we would be working this weekend, which is fine. And after a call today, they told three of us to work on this proposal. But the other two people had plans and one guy was worse than useless. He asked our boss for delete permissions for these files, and then deleted a newer version of a file I needed to compile everything and kept an older one. I managed to get it from my work computer so it was just a small delay and I didn't have to do the changes I had made over again, fortunately. I think it's finally done now...

I went to the Halloween party. It was awesome.

 

Talked with a bunch of people (mostly my coworkers lol) and had fun. There was a really cute guy but I'm pretty sure he was straight so I didn't bother anything more than talking. Lots of cute girls but I'm not confident enough to approach girls right now.
