Everything bad happens in threes

Today was interesting to say the least.

First up was a call by my bank altering me to some fraudlent charges to my bank account. My business account had been hacked and they were purchasing Microsoft XM stuff. Being that it was my company account which I keep a low balance and infrequently use for only business related purchases it was an immediate flag.

Thankfully they called and we quickly resolved the issue.

Then I came home to find my personal Facebook account disabled. I suspect it was my ardent use of that page to express my political disinchantment with the extreme right and my memberships in such illustrious groups as "Glenn Beck is an Idiot" "Rush Limbaugh is an Idiot." That or Bill Maher and Rachel Maddow fan pages set the nut right into seizures. I suspect its the same boring mentality that at one point flagged this blog and brought it down.

And then later this evening I recieved a call from the Washington State Compliance Department regarding my Craigslist Ad for my "construction business." I searched Craigslist for said ad and found none and wonder what ad this officer is referring to. Unfortunately when I returned the call he was out of the office.

There is little one can do when someone uses your business information which is of course largely available and easily duplicated but what it does it puts the already exhausted resources of all of us into resolving this with great and unnecessary stress.

I spend a lot of time dealing with idiots and my political expressions and honest and intelligent manner has led me to be the target of ire. But it is exhausting and I find myself further and further retreating into isolation as a coping strategy.

I think my greatest yoga teacher, Katchie, said "everything is temporary, both the good and the bad and you must always remember that." Well I keep thinking this temporary thing of late has been seemingly permanent.

I hope that for that sake its the former and not the latter.
