uck. I'm expecting an echeck to clear at PayPal today. I NEED it to clear today, so I can transfer it to my bank acc't. before the weekend.

Fighting the LBB is not amusing, under the circumstances.

And, of course, I feel obliged to reload my PayPal account history page fifty seven times a visit, not knowing if the LBB is playing games with cookies, cache, etc.

They picked the WRONG day to play games!
Every time I turn the LBB on, I break out into a sweat!

BTW: sent myself 4 emails w/some scripting code in them today; they all
took TWENTY FIVE MINUTES to come into my own email box!


Guess I'd better get my tin cup & go out panhandling....
Someone suggested I go to the Public Library to use a computer.

Fortunately, my PayPal acc't. credited me with the payment and I was able to transfer it into my bank account!

I deal with an unscrupulous property mgmt. company whose primary goal in life is to squeeze as much blood out of their tenants as possible.

I was desperate to pay my rent before I could incur a late fee.

I have mailed a check to the company, accompanied by a letter requesting they not deposit the check before Tuesday, unless I call them to let them know the funds have transferred early.

I included a copy of my PayPal email, announcing that the transfer has been made.

I made the mistake, the last time I moved, of taking a Direct Deposit Advance of a month's income. I needed it for deposits, etc.

I've had to take advances every month since to pay rent. The fees cost me $500� per year.

My new employer advanced me $500., so I'd no longer have to make Advances.

The money cleared at 10am today. That will save me almost $40 for just this month.

The less I have to subsidize my slum lord AND my predatory lender bank, the happier I'll be!

Thank you for your suggestions. I'd thought of that, myself.

I can ALMOST walk to the library from here.
