So earlier today, after my rant about my pre-paid credit card issues, I went inworld and chatted with a friend of mine who always gets me to smile.
I did get their permission to share the chat, it was funny as heck... at least, I thought it was smile emoticon
[09:31] Kevin: the only thing i ever use it for these days is when i stay at a hotel and they have to hold a card #
[09:31] AW: Yep sadly need that for hotels.
[09:31] Kevin: which is kind of stupid really... they should just hold the $200 deposit and be done with it
[09:32] Kevin: this is a hotel that I've prepaid for btw
[09:32] AW: It's a capitalist and paranoid world.
[09:32] Kevin: yup, irony is, they could get maybe $150 from the card... vs $200 cash, but they don't check your room before you check out, so the whole deposit thing is a scam anyways
[09:33] Kevin: they have all your details, if you screw things up they still have to bill you
[09:33] AW nods
[09:33] Kevin: one hotel i stay at... $60 hold goes on card... like $60?! lol
[09:34] Kevin: i wonder if that means i can steal $60 worth of towels? lol
[09:34] AW: Just a token amount to let you know they're serious?
[09:35] Kevin: i guess yeah
[09:35] AW: lol $60 worth of towels
[09:35] Kevin: i wonder... cost or retail value? hmmmmm
[09:36] Kevin: i should jokingly ask them next time, hey what does it charge my card? $60... does that mean I can steal $60 worth of towels? what's that, 3 towels?
[09:36] Kevin: grin emoticon
[09:36] AW: I say go for the bathrobe and all the toilet paper. Let's be practical:)
[09:37] Kevin: yeah no bathrobes... probably a good thing lol.... hmm shampoo 30 cents, body soap 30 cents, ... oh i could get up to $60 eventually smile emoticon
[09:38] AW: Tea! Coffee! "Could I please get some more tea?" "Again? Didn't you just call us?"
[09:38] Kevin: lol
[09:38] Kevin: oooh coffee maker $20 woot!
[09:38] AW: lol
[09:38] Kevin: forget the nickel and dime stuff
[09:39] Kevin: the pillows are nice too, maybe $15
[09:39] Kevin: shoot, can you charge me $100, I know lots of things I want now from the room
[09:39] AW stands on the dresser "Hey I wonder how fast I could take the blinds off..."
[09:39] Kevin: lmao
[09:39] Kevin: hmmm better make it $200
[09:39] AW: lol
[09:40] AW: Properly motivated, we could get into a lot of trouble together...lol
[09:41] Kevin: lol ... quick AW grab the pillow cases the RC's (RCMP) are coming!
[09:41] AW yanks them off "Stick these in your pockets....forget the soaps!"
[09:42] Kevin: nooooo I want my soaps! here drop the remote I've got an extra one at home you can have
[09:43] AW changes into cargo pants and a baggy shirt that tucks in "Dude, I got this...."
[09:43] AW: ((as in lots of pockets...lol))
[09:43] Kevin: lmao
[09:45] AW surreptitiously dons a trench coat and rubber boots too "ok, pass me that coffeemaker."
