Al Salam alykom wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh
Just woke up an hour or so ago. Slept for 12 hours! Yeah its not the regular kind because I'm used to the common cold. I feel so fortunate and such a cry baby at the same time to sit here complain about a cold while having hot soup. I wonder how less fortunate people are feeling. May Allah cure them and ease their pain. My nose is like running tap water. I didn’t know I drank so much water!
Yesterday, while I was getting sick, I went to pay my phone bill again. The previous one I paid late somewhere around the beginning of this month. Something around $190. It's okay because I knew I made some international calls. Two weeks later another bill comes in and I receive an SMS on my phone that says I have passed 70% of allowed credit or something. I said to myself it must be a mistake. They must have not been updated with the fact that I just paid my bill. So yesterday I went to make sure and I was shocked. $480 just this month!! I was thinking "but I didn’t even talk on the phone". Turns out, the month starts on the 18th of November.
I'm glad I had that kind of money in my pocket. Both of my ATM cards were locked for some reason and the ATM will spit them out like it doesn’t want to serve me. I usually go get a new card and a new pin code so I went to the nearest branch and told them about it and they told me to go to the branch that I opened the account with. "But that branch is in Ummsaieed city" I said. Ummsaieed city is a very far city my father used to work at. He opened my first account for me when I was underage and I haven’t used this account for over a year. "You have to go there, sorry" the clerk said.
So I drove all the way there and withdrew all my "fortune" with them and closed my account. Drove back to my other bank and withdrew all my "fortune" with them and closed my account there as well. Then I drove to a fully Islamic bank and opened an account and deposited some of my "fortune" with them and left some as pocket money. I wanted to do that for a long time but was too lazy to drive that far. Alhamdu lillah I got that out of the way.
