Complaints Complaints... Manic Monday <

So I recently put it together that my whole idea of Fab Friday Newz, might kind of go against the whole Manic Monday theme because FFN is all about finding the positive in everything and spreading joy... but to be honest, sometimes you just need to vent!  And man it feels so good to get the little things off your chest sometimes.  The silly things that others can relate to, or the things that you think no one else can.  "Opposition in all things."  It's the sorrows in life that truly help us to appreciate the joys.  I've come to the conclusion that FFN, and MM's are the perfect compliment to one another!  Okay, off my soap box. 
Whit and I went to go rent a movie, we had searched high and low for this particular one and found it at a store across town.  I hadn't rented there in over a year or so because I had moved.  They told me that I had a late fee and asked if I would like to pay on it (I was glad to have been given the option.)  I asked how much it was, and nearly passed out at the response.  It was something like $24.00  They told me the names of the movies.  Two movies I had never even seen, and my mind started racing over the details... how was this even possible.  A roommate I used to have had rented a couple of times under my account, and apparently been late.  Grrrr... well nothing I could do about it now.  I paid a portion of the late fee, and made note not to let anyone else ever rent under my account!

Some things we learn the hard way. We want to trust our friends but most of the time I've found, we can't. It's a shame. My boyfriend has lost thousands of dollars in loaning things to people who destroyed them.

So sorry that your friend did that to you! I learned the same lesson. It's sad that people don't take care of their own.

Have a great Monday!

Sorry being nice turned out so bad for you... I had to pay a late fee that was twice the cost of the movie and they wouldn't let me keep the movie.

That's such a shame your old roomate ran up those fees! At least you know karma will get her!
