DOL debacle

Posted 03-06-2008 at 05:18 PM by LadyGladiator

I will admit I was stupid for not having my checkbook or cash on hand...

However, not knowing that all DOL facilities do not take debit/credit cards is a valid thing.

It's stupid they don't take debit/credit cards.

I had never experienced this before when visiting DOL for anything. Maybe back then I carried a checkbook?? I don't remember anymore.

I was going to take care of some DOL stuff. After arriving to one facility I didn't notice immediately that they only took checks or cash. Once I finally read almost every sign in the place I got to this one. I didn't have time to run & get cash from ATM or even go back and get my checkbook. Maybe I'm too streamlined with my transactions? I tried to reach my husband to see if he could run some cash to me before it was my turn... He wasn't responding immediately. I couldn't wait any longer. I just got up and left. By the time he responded it was already too late.

Of course I was upset... I called him back as soon as I saw he tried to call me. My voice was raised in my being upset... it made him mad and he hung up on me...

I ended up just driving home. I'll just have to go back another day.

    I personally believe the reason government agencies don't take plastic is because they don't want to pay the fees involved with these types of transactions. For them not to take credit/debit cards is stupid and a huge inconvenience to the majority of Americans. Besides, our society now runs on plastic. Almost no one carries cash and most retailers don't or won't take checks unless they know you. Congress could pass a law exempting all government transactions from processing fees and this problem would evaporate overnight.
