Let me tell you guys about my awful Monday. Seeing as it was only yesterday, I unfortunately have a great recollection of what events occurred.
8:15am: My alarm goes off this time every day. I wake up and start my Monday like I would any other day. However, knowing that it was a holiday, I made sure to put on comfortable shoes and clothes. I was preparing for the abnormal amount of people I was expecting to walk through the doors at work.
10:45am: I get to work and start my normal opening routine.
11:30am: Time to turn on the projectors in the scary projection booth upstairs. I noticed that one of the projectors was completely off and another had to go through a hard restart. Great…more time in my least favorite place.
11:45am: Time to open the doors! Oh and here is the crowd of people I was expecting. Good thing we have nearly zero money in the safe!
1:30pm: It finally starts to slow down as all the movies are starting. The staff and myself start to clean up and restock for the next round.
2:10pm: I get one of the worst text messages ever. It was from my bank asking if I tried to make a withdrawal…in the amount of $1594.86. I don’t have nearly this much in my account, but panic set in nearly immediately. I checked my account on my phone and sure enough my checking balance was $0.00. All I wanted to do was cry or punch something.
2:12pm: I immediately call the bank after receiving the alert to warn them that I did not, in fact, try to withdraw $482.45 at 2:00pm, $1594.86 at 2:05pm, and $474.74 at 2:08pm from Las Vegas, Nevada at a credit one online bank. They shut down the card immediately and file a claim. After asking them a million questions, I learned that the charges need to actually go through before the claim does. Then after that, I should hopefully get my funds reimbursed.
2:15pm: I get off the phone with them, only slightly relieved at the simple fact that whoever is trying to take money from me no longer can. I also realize that I will not have access to my accounts for 5-7 business days, I have $0.00 in my account, and to top it all off I have a grand total of $7.00 in my wallet.
Has anyone ever experienced this awful event? If they have, I would love to know what happened so I know what to expect. I am still slightly freaking out over everything. Ugh this is the worst.
