Why Is Technology So Unreliable??? (A Peeve)

Behind the 8 ball
Anyone else find this to be a basic truism too, or is it just me???

My credit card was compromised. I was trying to continue using same card, keeping an eye on charges, believing a false attempted charge was a so-called "one off".

But my CC company (of 25 years, I might add) would not let me do it. The INSISTED the only way is to send me a new card w/ new number. :mad: I hate the hassle of changing numbers! :mad:

Anywho, I get new card(s), and go to activate online. The process stops after hitting the ACTIVATE button with a blank white screen that just sits there. :confused: I try a 2nd time, same thing.

So I try texting instead, what the tell me to say, and where to send it to, only to get a message that says I must download their so-called APP to do it. Not wanting to clog my phone with yet another APP, I decline.

So i call by phone instead. At the end, the recording says "say TEXT or E-Mail for how you want your confirmation sent". So I say TEXT. It can't understand me. So I say TEXT a couple more times. Still no go.

So I hang up all frustrated by stupid technology.
