    Ok.. so i get a call today from one of my good friends. She got pulled over and her registration was expired, ok so she's a dumbass for not renewing it in time. She got pulled over today about a mile from my work and the cop wouldn't let her leave till she had someone pay her reinstatement fee for the registration. Turns out you have to do it online. So the cop comes with her to my work, she has cash to cover it but no credit card. So i say fine, I'll put it on my card and take the cash no big deal.

    So i do all online BS and hit submit. Comes back and says my card was declined. Ok that's weird, I'm no where near my limit. So i try it again figuring i typed my card number wrong. Same thing. Try it again. Declined again.

    So she gets her dad to do it and goes on her way. I get a call from Citi bank saying that they suspect fraud on my credit card. Turns out that they actually charged me everytime without ever giving me any confirmation. WTF!! So i have $300 worth of charges on my card now and nothing I can do about it at the moment.

    I gotta call the DMV tomorrow to see if they can reverse the charges. If not i gotta dispute the charges at the end of the month.

    I try to do a little favor that should have been simple and look what i get for being a nice guy. FML
