Just when I thought I'd gotten all my financial worries squared away... paid my Discover bill online. The payment system says bank information is effective immediately when you change it. Great, switched it to one account to pay $100, and back to my regular account to pay the $27 and change remaining. This was last Saturday.

This morning, checked my accounts... the $100 was billed to the wrong bank, one that only had $60-something in it. So now I'm in the red there, and that's where another two bills will be coming in Friday, which will mean two more overdraft charges for a total $75 in fees. Tried to handle it with Discover over the phone, but kept switching me back and forth between departments, and finally hung up on me. So fuck 'em, I'll just try and resolve it some other way and not trust their payment system ever again.
