I'll bet he was driving an SUV.

That would explain everything.

First the environment, now this.

Gas guzzling bastards.

Initially, Mr. Zamora thought it mustve been a joke. But after contacting PayPal customer service he was surprised to see that the company treated it as anything but a laughing matter.
Somebody from a foreign country who spoke in broken English argued with me for 10 to 15 minutes, Zamora said. Did you get the gas? he asked. Like I had to prove that I didnt pump $81,400,836,908 in gas!


Note to self, PayPal Financial Services ain't all that.

Watch your utility use as well....

Xcel's million-dollar misprint a shock

written by: Tom McGhee, Denver Post, posted by: Sara Gandy

AURORA - Jittilak Chaivann relies on her bank to automatically pay the bills for her Aurora restaurant. But the $1.28 million bill that came this month from Xcel Energy swamped her account and threw her into a panic.

The way energy prices were going last summer, I thought we were heading for something like this.

The customer should have paid in Zimbabwean dollars.
