Paid a credit card from the wrong bank. $35 overdraft fee. Hopefully can get it waived

That means the bank paid even though you did not have the money in the account. It could have been worse if they decided not to pay, in which case you would also have a declined payment fee and possibly a late fee from the credit card.

which game were you playing?

was waiting for that to get asked  :P

but then i thought. if i had one bank account and one credit card no way this would happen.

tldr: the ms game

That means the bank paid even though you did not have the money in the account. It could have been worse if they decided not to pay, in which case you would also have a declined payment fee and possibly a late fee from the credit card.

yea and considering how much it was kind of glad. +im not sure amex would have been thrilled with the declined payment (although it was on a very established account) also glad i had mint send me an alert or it may have taken me a couple days to notice to replace the funds.

Revenue ua flight got cancelled and I asked to be rebooked on AA thinking I'd probably get redeemable miles, forgetting that I was booked on a revenue flight with UA and would have gotten that anyway. I'm not getting any more miles and lost upgrade chances (would have cleared)
you can still claim the miles from UA for the IRROPS flight so you get to double dip

Probably a common mistake, but annoying.
I didn't cancel some things in my S&S in time.
I got the 'last chance' email over the weekend, so I missed it and yesterday was the last day to dump them.   :( :-[

BTDT, if you email them they might be able to help.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Call, ask for a one time exception, pray for the best, HUCA.

However, the wonderful gracious folks at Uber were willing to forgive the sin of stupidity and give me the $25 credit.

Maskim that this is such an easy mistake to make. BH you got this response though, cause 75% of the time I get some scripted garbage response and a 5$ credit for such issues . Of course I don't let them get away with that though
