Help me understand, what does 'too much bacon' mean? I don't understand.
There is no such thing as "to much bacon." It does not compute.

...a small price to pay....:) but hey, this is about eating 2 1/2 lbs. of meat per week. i consider myself an omnivore with marked carnivore tendencies, and i probably consume somewhat less than two lbs. of meat/fish in a week. the occasional steak or pork binge (involving a full lb. portion) is as rare an event as it is memorable.

Well I have had a very annoying morning and it is only 5:25 am!

I got up this morning at 1:00am and checked my email. I noticed that I had won an auction on Ebay so I went out to pay for the item and Paypal declined my payment authorization. I thought I might have made a mistake because of the early hour and ran it again, another decline! Then I noticed an email from Paypal informing me that I had reached some internal spending limit and I needed to verify my account by providing additional bank information or by opening a Paypal Mastercard. I thought it might be some type of scam so I signed into my Paypal account and got the same message. Since then I have been going round in circles with Paypal. After 4 hours of this I got so aggravated I finally closed my Paypal account! I hope the poor Ebay seller will allow me to send him a check, I hate to see him harmed in this.

I hate it when it is more difficult to spend my money than it was to earn it!

You said a mouthful. Sorry to read that you had such a hard time with PayPal.

My PayPal account is tied into my savings account. I only keep five dollars in there. When I make a purchase, I just transfer the amount needed from my checking account and once PayPal pays for my purchase, my balance is back to five dollars. I have never had a request to tie it to a credit card account. The one thing I like about PayPal is that it is almost failsafe. I am not sure my bank even knows that I use my savings account for PayPal.

Did you have any luck contacting them by phone?

yup!

The good news is that the person I was making my transaction with contacted me and agreed to accept a personal check. I will pop that in the mail this morning. I have a couple more transactions that I need to provide feedback on then I will close my Ebay account.

I am probably cutting off my nose to spite my face but, I'm gonna rock my new look!
