Direct debit Hell

This morning I went to the cashpoint only to find I was overdrawn. I never, ever, ever go overdrawn (haven't done for about ten years) - and luckily I have an overdraft facility so I won't get charged for this - but the problem was that a company I paid a large deposit to by cheque a couple of months ago - have now spanked the same amount again by direct debit!!!! Cheeky Fuckers. I remember when Christian (and I) was poor a few years ago and Sheffield City Council took a whole years council tax off him in one hit by Direct Debit. He couldn't eat for about 8 weeks!!! I really dislike Direct debits because when you set one up the actual paperwork says that they can take as much as they like whenever they like. Usually they don't - but when they do - it's often a real struggle to get it back. So, I need you all to pray that my £850 will be returned to me with immediate effect!!! Luckily I have savings - so I'm covered - but my blood ran cold this morning when I went to get some money so I could have a latte and a bacon sandwich on my way into work!!
