I'm happy to hear it was solved in the end! I understand how that could be a scary experience!


I have a rant too... last night I was supposed to get a confirmation message about my benefits payout; that is supposed to go into my account tomorrow. I was very curious about it; since I had some 'vacation' which means I should get less paid out (but I got some vacation money saved up from my job at the hospital). 

I still have not received the confirmation message, and I'm supposed to get the payout tomorrow. I called the benefits office this morning and they said the payout hadn't been confirmed yet... and I didn't get much help. 

So... right now I don't even know if I get my benefits tomorrow, and if I don't have it by Monday my rent won't be paid and I'll struggle with food obviously (luckily this time I have some stuff in my fridge and managed to save up a little)

Thanks to you all. I was starting to get anxious again when I woke up this morning, but reading your responses helped to remind me that problems that we run into always seem bigger and worse when we're tired at night.
Turns out I was logging into the wrong account last night when I was trying to see if I could cancel the order. I had forgotten that the only Kindle Store that existed when I first got the Kindle was the US one and last night I was logging into my mum's Canadian Amazon account. I logged into the American one and there was the book, paid for by the giftcard, with a few dollars left to spare, so I don't have to worry about credit card matters! Woohoo!

Keeping fingers crossed. I am sure it will turn out fine. Being a mum myself (with grown-up kids) I know such things can happen.

Of course. You can read it anytime later but I can tell you as far as I know about your plans, that this one here is very different. And I am looking forward very much to yours. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

That sounds really great, Susi. I have just written the first 500 Words of my own post-TFP fic and want to stay away from other fics taking place after S4 but I have bookmarked it for future reading!

It sucks, I'm crossing fingers it didn't work. You'll out yourself or not whenever you're ready, if you decide to do it. Don't apologise for the rant, that's what that topic is for ;) We all know how it is to have something upsetting in mind.

Hope it all work out ok.

So much for getting to sleep before midnight like I had planned.
I was reading a sample of something on my Kindle and when I finished it I thought I would search for something else. Well, I found something else I wanted to read a free sample of....But accidentally clicked "Buy" instead of "Try a sample!" It was about $6.00, so it's not a super costly mistake (I made a worse one in the past), but I still panicked because it's my mum's account that is on the Kindle, not mine. And it's with a credit card to which I don't have online access to its balance, based on the last digits, (and according to account settings has expired). I don't even know if she still has it. I know I had a gift card for Kindle when we first got it but I don't know if it still has money on it.
I tried googling how to return and get a refund on a book, but it's not showing up on the list of books bought (in fact a book I bought on Kindle years ago is not even there, though it's possible that it's because it was so long ago). I really hope it's just a processing thing and I can get a refund when I try logging into the account again tomorrow.
The consolation is that my mum never updated her account to her new email address, so any confirmation email will never be seen by her (the topic of the book made me afraid I would out myself to my family, which I am not ready for). If it goes through to her credit card and she asks  about it, I will just pay her back. If I can cancel it tomorrow, I will be happier.
Sorry for bothering you all with this, but I had to let this out to help calm down instead of just sitting in silence with my head spinning.
I guess I officially hate the "convenient" one-click purchase system. They don't even ask "are you sure you want to buy this?"
