If they were married for over 10 years, then CA says she is also entitled to money made down stream after the divorce. So raising the prices would only give her more money in the following years. It most likely has to do with building the new headquarters and the cost to move people out of Seattle. They have a great relocation benefits.

Reloaded the "gift card" at amazon the other day. From my checking account.

I've done this before. Easiest way to get a balance going at amazon, then use that balance. (When you can't just drive into town and buy a gift card.)

Never had a problem. No problem this time. Except that this time...

I received the email that said they had loaded the amount I requested.

THEN I received an email that said that they tried to load 10k dollars, and had only succeeded in loading the amount that I requested in the first place.

Obviously a 'test' to see how much they could get if they tried.

(Gas stations do it too. They claim that it is so they can be assured that they can withdraw whatever we actually purchase.)

I call BS. They don't need to know how much is in my account.

They only need to ask for the amount I said, and then let me know if they can't get it.

I got the strangest feeling this was in case someone there at amazon decided to grab as much money as they could from people's accounts, if they got fired, or something...

Now... I have to wonder if someone at amazon is concerned that they are going down, and is hedging their bets ahead of time...

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

It's normal.
My company pays by one time use cards. I have to tell the vendors a dozen times to only run the card once for actual amount, and not run it to see if monies are there or the usual round up and pull what's owed.
A complete fiasco getting zeroing out old card and running a new one.

I maintain my indignation.

It is none of their business how much is or isn't in my checking account.

Their only business with my account, is to withdraw the amount I have agreed with them for.

If they are unable to withdraw that amount, then they should check with me about it.

Anything else is an invasion of my privacy.

I am continually amazed at how much, people nowadays, think nothing of invasions of their privacy... That a few decades ago, people would have filed lawsuits if that happened.
