Was My Face Red! Wednesday

Welcome to Was My Face Red! Wednesday! Most of us have, at one time or another, done something so humiliating, that we wished the floor would open up and consume us. Let's swallow our pride and share those moments with others! Our shame was not in vain, if it can put a smile on someone face! You tell me yours, and I'll tell you mine...

This didn't exactly make my face as red as it just let me know what an idiot I had married...

About 13 years ago, when I was still married to my ex-hasbeen(not a typo), I got a very strange call one night from my credit card company...

"Hello, this is XXX, with XXX, may I please speak to XXX?"
"This is she."
"Hi XXX. I am calling because we have reason to believe that someone is trying to gain access to your CC information, without your knowledge. This is a courtesy call, to clear things up, before we freeze your card."
"I'm not sure what you mean."
"Well, a person, who is obviously male and is attempting to sound female, called our customer service center and is asking for your PIN. He has made several attempts to get cash from an ATM, located at XXX, using your CC."
"This person couldn't be using my card, as I have right here in my purse."
"Mam, could you please check to be sure that your card is there? I am certain he was using your card."
I check my purse and sure enough, my card is missing.
"You're right, I don't have my card. Where did you say this person was calling from?"
He tells me the name of the city.
Suddenly, bells and whistles go off in my brain. My hasbeen was working out of town and that was the city where he was staying.
"Can you please give me the number he was calling from?"
"Mam, I am not allowed to give..."
"Please, I think the person that tried to use the card is my husband." I was so ashamed to admit that. Thank goodness this was some random, faceless, person, that I would probably never have to deal with again.
"Your husband?" He seemed shocked.
"Yes,he is working out of town and must have taken the card without my knowing. He obviously has mental issues that run deeper than I have ever suspected. Sorry for all the trouble."
He chuckled, "Off the record, the number is ###-###-####"
"Thank you so much!"
We ended our call and I immediately dialed the other number. He answers right away, obviously expecting to have the CC company on the other line, giving him my PIN.
"Hello?", were I not so angry, I would have had to laugh at his absolutely terrible attempt to replicate the female voice.
I scream into the phone, "What the 'F' are you doing?! Have you lost your damned mind?!"
"Oh, Hi Honey..."
"Hi Honey?! I have just had one of the most humiliating phone conversations of my life, covering your ass, because you got the bright idea to steal my credit card and then had the nerve to try and impersonate me, and all you can say is, 'Hi Honey?!"
"Well, Dave and I are stuck down here with no food money. Our expense card is not working and we can't get in touch with the boss to find out why."
"First of all, who the hell is Dave? Second of all, you took my card before you even knew that your expense card wouldn't work. Third of all, if your story were even true, you would have had no problem calling me and asking for the PIN, instead of going to all this trouble.Fourth of all, even if your story were true, I do not own XXXX and Sons, so I be damned if I am footing the bill for their employees to dine out, especially some guy named Dave that I have never even heard of. Fifth of all, I probably won't even be here when you get back home. I've tolerated living with an idiot, but to hell with living with a liar as well!"
"Um, can I get that PIN number?"
"Um, F*** You!"
I later found out that Dave was a crack head and ex-HB was actually trying to get the money to go to a strip club and to maybe help Dave get a fix. He never confessed to also being a crack head and considering he weighed almost 320 lbs., I was inclined to believe him.

  1. My bio-mother gave my ex $10,000 to fight me in court so he could get custody of MY daughter. It went up his nose. I personally think that it was money well spent!

  2. This was hysterical! You handled it well!! :)
