Decided not to go for Taco Tuesday at Don Pablo's (even though "The Don is Dead" was on the hill behind this restaurant) since I still had the BK coupon book. I'll save the tacos for when there aren't any other specials.
Up until recently, I'd been using cash to buy gas so I never knew what problems could result from gas pump credit card readers. I started using pay at the pump because I received a prepaid card from the washing machine rebate. This afternoon, I used the card to buy gas at Wawa in Marshallton. The card didn't work later in the day. When I got back, I checked the account to find out why. It appears that the gas pump failed to close the transaction so there was still a pending charge on the full value of the card! One of two things could happen. Either the system corrects the problem, releases the pending charge, and charges the card for the correct amount, or in 7 days, the pending charge will get voided automatically. (which would mean free gas, I suppose) Either way though, that's annoying.
