It sounds sarcastic, but the genuine answer is simply: because they can.

Just seems to totally defeat the object. "Haha, you had no money in your account to pay [name], so we're just going to take 40 off of you for the fun of it." I'd agree with them if they actually paid the charge for you, then charged you for some type of Borrowing thing...exactly the name given to what they class the charge as, "Unplanned Borrowing..."...how the f*ck are you borrowing anything when they haven't paid it for you?

What made this situation worse is, the other day I had bought a meal online, and the next day, when checking the bank balance, it had 'taken' the payment from my account, as in telling me that my balance was 190, but only available to take out 170...a few days later, this money has re-appeared in my account, and without knowing this, took the money out. They then take the money out of my account again, thus leading to me having no money in the account to pay my DD.

Im hatin on a certain part of the forum here right now, the meltin sh*t pot called the V section. The pure lazy speculation and assumptions made by new members overflows that section to the point no real valid discussions,points of view or general good conversations can cultivate. Its to the point I barely see the usual mainstays any longer. I know the simplest answer to my bitch is to all together stop goin to the V section but its hard to do with wantin my self to marvel at whats to come but jesus how many threads need to be opened about Ned Luke or bullsh*t like steak dinners?

Sorry for the rant but I guess this is the best place to shoot off on it. dozingoff.gif

Stop going into the V forum.

But you gonna have to accept it. These new members still don't know how we roll in the forums. Hell in my eyes you yourself are still considered a new member to me.

Just stick to the topics that have an actual title of meaning and you'll be fine.

Yeah I agree as I said in my first post I know my best bet is to stop goin in there for awhile but its kinda hard to sometimes.

BTW my profile is kinda new but thats because I had to make a second profile after my first was hacked.

Most forum regulars don't even consider the GTA V section a normal part of the forum. That is where all the newbies go to rant and rave and froth with excitement over the slightest teased detail. Many of the people there rarely venture into the Lounge sections, which is fine with me. It's the V section now, but every time we get a new GTA announced that section becomes the newbie cesspool and the rest of us veteran members tend to avoid it completely. It's like its own world over there.

The GTAV forum in a helpful list

  • 20 threads on the same thing
  • Release dates "proven" based on random equations
  • Bad trolls

Give them a break, they're up to five area mods and they're doing the best they can. Good job guys. wink.gif

I'm not trying to hate on the mods, they can't help what's posted. The best they can do is lock or delete said bullsh*t threads. Sometimes I wonder if threads should be screened before they can be posted. More work for mods but a cleaner section, but that's neither here nor there. Its sad the V section was hit so hard, I knew it would happen but a few of the people I'd gotten to know seem to have vanished after said events. Not goin to be down about it, I'm off to find other fulfilling sections of GTAF, adventures!

Plenty of happening areas around here.

My gripe today is dudes that don't follow the ladies first rule. Look! When you are entering a building, bus, subway, elevator, whatever - if there is a lady behind you, you are suppose to hold the door and let them enter. In the cases of subways and that kind of entrance - you are suppose to step to the side and let them enter first.

I was brought up to be a gentleman, so the whole ladies first thing is second nature to me. I wouldn't ever not hold doors open and so on, it just wouldn't be right. A few years back, after opening and holding a door for a couple of ladies, this obnoxious little woman with a face like the wrong end of a diseased donkey jabbed me in the ribs and had a go at me for being sexist. I tried to point out that I was only trying to be decent, but she wasn't having any of it. I made sure to hold the door open for her after I went through.

Anytime someone makes an opinionated list or top ten of something, there is always a douchebag that says "You forgot <their choice>". I find this extremely annoying, as if the list maker is incompetent and obviously wasn't aware that that choice existed.

Example:

Top 3 worst hair cuts: Faux Hawk, Mullet, Emo bangs

Commenter: "You forgot the fade, that hairstyle is awful."

You have good parents. I was raised a gentleman too. It takes no effort and returns many rewards.

Obviously, that guy in the pic is a poser. The watch is a dead giveaway. Also, I would never be caught dead in those pants.

Oh hey, can I let out a bit of a hippie rant since we are here? Younger hippies that aren't hippies, but want to try and look and act like one. I'm telling you folks, you can't put on a hippie act and be an honest person. And just so you all know - the mindset and thinking happens way before you slap on a tiedye and start pontificating as to why war is bad.

To be honest, I think its best most of us stay away from that part of the forum until a new trailer or something, I mean seriously, the newb sh*t that goes on there is worse than what it was when I first joined this forum =P

The V section is going full retard today. Fanboy wars and general whiny-ness is running rampant. I know I'm new here but I only joined to try and have some good discussions related to V. Outside of like 10 people that seems to be impossible in the V section. I'll stop bitching now.

Sometimes it is. It goes on a thread by thread basis. I'd say an easy 80% of all threads in that section are completely retarded.

Like personality wise, or like what I said. Yeah that makes sense, still leaves me feeling awkward though because when the girl says your hot or something you can be like, alright lets go do this thing giggity! But when they say your cute you can appreciate it but it just kills off the sexual buzz. That's how I see it anyway. Obviously it ain't a bad thing though.

No seriously take the advice given to me and take the time to explore the rest of the forums some fun threads to take part in.

Something to rant about.

"You should have killed me."
"Nah, you're pretty much dead already."

Right, those two lines have pretty much been overplayed already in Movies and TV. It was used in The Walking Dead, Sons Of Anarchy and countless other movies.

Same thing can be said about a certain Skyrim meme. Overplayed. Though I actually do love it smile.gif

What meme and really good movie lines have not been repeated countless of times on other movies or on the internet?

I agree, I have a friend who's like that. None of us say anything, but it can get a bit irritating, especially when they practically boast of how they spent time talking to a girl the night before. Like, wow, dude, great beans.

Anywho, I could never understand how people could talk to you when they see that you're on the f*cking phone. Like, my God, I don't have super-human ears, so in order to actually hear what the other person is saying, I think it might be reasonable not to have someone walking up to me and asking me a question about this and that, or telling me to tell the person something whilst the other person is actually speaking.

Today the world is full of those damn memes. I can't escape someone saying "YOU MAD BRO!!!ONE1!," or "TrollfaceLOLZtrolollol". It's not the internet that bothers me with them though, people at my school will use them without knowledge of what they even mean. If someone says something stupid, someone else retorts with "coll story bro!", and I know that if I complain someone is going to say "UMAD?". Seriously, it's getting exhausting.

Then I've got a teacher at my school who is a Mac fanboy, which I wouldn't be so angry about, if it weren't for the fact that he recommends them to students who have no business using the few advantages they have over anything else, and wasting their money. He's also nicknames his classes after memes, and hacker groups, and uses those memes around the students, influencing them to incorrectly use "NOPE CHUCK TESTA," or Trollface.

Oh, and don't get me started on TV nowadays. All I can ever find that I'm interested in is on Adult Swim, or SyFy, but with Syfy turning into the wrestling channel, the only reason to keep Cable is so I can catch Holiday specials, or the occasional airing of shows that I used to watch. (At least Netflix is here to comfort me.)

I have more, but I don't feel like taking up half a forum page.

Keep cable for two channels:

FX - It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Sons Of Anarchy
AMC - Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead

Those two networks are worth the price of cable service all by themselves, just for those five shows.

Don't forget, HBO.

I don't even get AMC in my country but still I get to watch Mad Men on FX and The Walking Dead on some FOX channel. I have to download Breaking Bad online though.

And zoo3891, it's not the TV's problem. It's just your problem for not knowing good entertainment. We're in the golden age of television. Television shows are much more better than the sh*t you see in movies.

TV is f*cking crazy these days. The other night we were watching something and decided to finish watching in the bed room. My wife says "It's channel 1328". There are just way too many channels now, and of course most of them are pure crap.

The only reason we pay the insane cable bill is for a weird hockey reason. Since the owner of our hockey team also happens to own Comcast cable, you have to have Comcast in order to watch our hockey team.


Aside from that - Oprah Winfrey. Can she just please go away.

Can't you just hide future updates from them, or at least filter what you see? I don't have Facebook so I wouldn't know much, but it seems that a social networking site that doesn't give you at least some level of content control is pretty lousy.
