I finally bit the bullet and registered for my 20 year high school reunion in August. Or at least I think I did.

You see, I actually tried to register on Saturday. I'd received a message over facebook that it was the last day to register, but when I went to the registration website, I discovered that I needed an ID number from an invitation, that I didn't receive.

So I followed the instructions on the website and left a message. When they returned my call today, we did the registration over the phone. But then they had a computer glitch, though they assured me I was registered.

Now it occurs to me that I have given out my credit card number over the phone, was unable to get a confirmation email (due to the glitch), or a reference number over the phone (again with the glitch), and agreed to pay a sum that I have only the rep's word is the amount that will be charged.

Geez, I'm normally so much smarter than that. I'm sure it'll all be fine, but it was just a reminder of how easy it is for someone to access another person's finances.

  1. ACK - I haven't registered or anything. I still have no idea how mobile I'll be so I keep putting it off...
