Have you ever had your credit card information stolen by someone?  I have.

For the second time in a year my bank sent me a notice that I’m being issued a new credit card because mine may have been compromised.  No explanations as to how or when or why, just shut up and do it. I hate pushy people, pushy governments, pushy companies, and now this pushy bank.  Ordering me to change cards without giving me the specifics seems to be a tad arrogant. If it’s just a preventative measure then tell me that. I don’t appreciate being treated like a moron child, being ordered around by a know-it-all parent. That may have worked when I was five but trust me, I’m no longer five.

I allow these people the privilege of using my money to make money for themselves but this Big Brother attitude pisses me off. It seems to be the way of things these days especially with the government and Big Business. They see us as a pack of slobbering idiots who need their hands held to make any sort of decision.

Injured Piggy Bank WIth Crutches

Now I get to spend a couple of hours today on the Net changing my credit card numbers on a myriad of websites.  I suppose I shouldn’t complain since they are allegedly protecting my money and accounts but talking down to me is unacceptable.

Over the last five years I’ve had my information stolen twice when unauthorized purchases were made in Canada and Europe. Throw in two changes of debit cards (because of hacked companies) and three new credit cards (for unexplained reasons) and OMFG what the hell is going on. If you’re doing something to benefit me all that’s required is a simple explanation. I guess it’s too much to hope for in these days of big government and big business arrogance. They’re too busy to deal with the feelings of the “great unwashed”.

I sometimes wonder whether it would be worth it to remove myself from the grid entirely and go back to writing checks and mailing payments. Is simple convenience worth all of this grief and aggravation?  I don’t want to get too crazy but maybe it’s time for some common sense to enter into my approach to the Net, my use of credit and debit cards, and banking in general. I need to think on it for a while longer and try to come up with some good solid solutions to this nightmare.

I’d ask the bank for help but they’d just replace all of my cards once again and send me that condescending form letter as well.

THE BIGGER THE ORGANIZATION, THE LESS THEY CARE.
