Blargh Blog

So these are my complaining blogs... today because of the time difference in China my card kept on getting denied and they put a hold on it. And because it denied the card the ATM ate the card and wouldn't give it back to me. So when I went to get help they kept my card and said that I needed my passport to get it back. However, yesterday I surrendered my passport to police to obtain a residence permit which costs 460 rmb money I didn't have because all the stupid random fees that occur in the China.

SO passportless I can't get my debit card back. and the Bank was like "oh we only hold cards for like 4 days. I don't get my passport back until the 7th of October. So then I was talking to the teller lady (this was all in Chinese by the way) trying to explain to here why I didn't have my passport, trying to get her to accept my Drivers License instead, which she wouldn't. and I started crying in the middle of the Agriculture Bank of China....

so cross your fingers with me that they won't throw away my card until I am able to get my passport back. In the mean time I have no idear what i'm supposed to do for money I already owe Sarah the residence permit money that she lent me...

Grrrr and this was all before noon today.

Why don't you see if you can get a teacher or something to go back to the bank with you? Might be able to explain the circumstances more clearly. (This is Emily's suggestion.)

That sucks! You'd think they'd be a little more understanding. Hopefully everything works out right.
