    My birthday was Monday, the 3rd. FI and I went out with another other couple to the Baltimore Aquarium on Sat afternoon/night and then met some more friends for dinner. Well we got there early and had to wait to get into the Aquarium so we walked over to ESPN Zone to kill sometime. My FI got the 1st round, three beers. I was drinking water. Well today I'm checking my credit card statements and I see 3 ESPN Zone charges on there! One for $50.58, one for $30.42 and one for $5. Now I know the three beers didn't cost any of those amounts so what the hell?!? I called ESPN Zone and they faxed over a receipt, NOT a signed version of what was charged. It has the correct beers and my water, but also has $29 of Jagermeister! I HATE Jagermeister and I know that no one in our group had those drinks/shots. I'm still waiting on them to send over the signed copy that has my FI's signature on it and the other two receipts. Two of the charges are in "temporary authorization" status on my credit card so the credit card company said they can't do anything about those until they post to the account. So... I have to wait for those to clear and then dispute it all together. This is NOT a very fun birthday surprise

      Ugh! That sucks. Can I tell you that the ONE time I went to the ESPN Zone in Baltimore they charged someone else's $68 tab to my card in addition to mine?! IDK what the hell is up with that place but I was so pissed and it took a decent amount of time to get the whole thing straightened out.

        Wow that sucks!
        I'm sure you'll get it resolved.
        Oddly enough, I just told FI I want to go to the Inner Harbor for my birthday in September...we'll have to pay cash if we go to ESPN Zone!

          Oh my!! I hope they get it fixed. Sounds like bad place to visit in my opinion!

            OMG dare I ask what else could go wrong?!? My state inspection was due July 31st, but I didn't have time to go until Aug 1...well I get there and find out that they don't do inspections on the weekends...I went to two places before giving up. So, I knew my inspection was expired, but I didn't have time the last two days to get it done. My FI switched cars with me today because he was going to stop after work to get the inspection done so I would be current. Well wouldn't you eff-ing know... he gets stopped on his way back from lunch with his boss! The cop gave him a $90 ticket! It is only expired by 5 days... I feel like he could've just given him a written warning! UGH I just wanna cry.

              That sucks! I hate it when I don't have time to do stuff like that.

              The good news is you should be able to dispute the cc authorizations so hopefully that stress goes away.
