Banks, Overdrafts and a frustrated fox.  
So right now I have three bounced checks. Two of them are about $20. Another is about %60. The bank charges a $25 fee for each. This means $75 in the hole at this moment. But it gets worse.

A few more checks are likely going to bounce as well. I don't know how many, so I can't properly tabulate what they will amount to. However, the money I saved up in the last couple of months for a new video card and later another SSD? Yeah, I'm forced to send that back. That's a hefty amount that would, I suspsect, only partially deal with the bank fees.

And my bank was the last one in the area to not charge any such fees. Their new owners insisted on instating those fees. So this means June is going to be really frigging crazy for my cash flow as I try to juggle crap and calm this stupid money problem.

It will be a long time before I get enough money to get that SSD or video card. So those plans are stalled for the forseeable future. But those don't matter right now and have to wait anyway. The first priority is acting as quickly as I can to counter as many of those fees as possible to minimize the damage.

There's 11 days before I know what the total damage is. And I'm not looking forward to it.
