It’s 5pm, Saturday afternoon, nothing in the wallet, bank, nor in Paypal … and I have no credit cards … but I wanna get pissed to celebrate a long over due rain down pour. (yeah yeah, any excuse)
I don’t like borrowing money for booze, so what does I noddle?
I’m probably the last to figure this out, but Paypal is kinda like an online short term credit source.
My bank shut at 12pm Saturday, which gives me a ‘don’t bug me for money, I need more sleep’ …. grace window until Monday arvo.
Before going anywhere, I use Dan Murphy’s online store to order their finest cheap wine (yuck) and pay using Paypal.
In theory, I get my act together Sunday arvo and repair (mower, old toaster etc) something that will easily sell before the end of banking hours Monday. (I gotta go all the bloody way up to Helensvale to make an over the counter deposit)
WARNING: I’ve done this before and my bank (The Greater) did NOT charge me a dishonour fee when Paypal asked for money on a different occasion.
Trouble is, I got 8 litres and will probably still be half pissed on Tuesday morning.
Ow well, I guess I’m going to find out how patient Paypal is for $20.00 (they’ve made plenty off me)
Bottoms up for a wet weekend 😉
