I'm an idiot too - we all make mistakes

I just had a little episode in my life where I must confess that I am also capable of idiocy, that I am not perfect and I make embarrassing mistakes as well.

Yesterday I received a pending transaction on my credit card worth about $60 from XBox live.

I hadn't used Xbox live for a long time, and I received no receipts in my email, so I thought the charge must've been fraudulent.

So I sent a premature message to my credit card company advising them I thought there was a bit of fraud going on.

I also tried to play Battlefield 4 on my PS4 only to find that I couldn't get on a server.

At this point I figured I must've been hacked, had my credit card numbers stolen and someone was banning me from playing a favourite game, so I went into chat with a PlayStation agent and told him about it. He said he'd note it.

I am such an idiot.

Today after receiving a response from my credit card, I then turned on my Xbox 360. I waited for all the updates to install, and then I checked my account - apparently my Annual renewal of XBox Live Gold had just happened recently.

I thought I had cancelled the renewal. maybe I falsely remembered.

Also:: Microsoft did not email any receipts to me. There was absolutely no email contact from microsoft about the renewal. Understandably, I was confused.

So, I sent a message to my credit card telling them it was a false alarm.

I hope Sony doesn't take my little report of oddity too seriously.

I am such an idiot. But, I have an excuse: I usually had my renewal at the beginning/end of the year, and I think microsoft gave me a few extra free months. Also, there was no receipt.

But that was pretty stupid. Doh.
