You'll never believe it! But it's true !

 I have a pre-paid debit card, to save me carrying money
But what they do does not seem real and it ain't very funny!
I used it an hotel, pre-authorisation charge
The card they put a hold on it, the charge it was quite large!
267 dollars was what the hold was for
The bill reduced to 136 as the hot tub didn't work!
The hotel charged the 136, but the card is holding on
To 267 not charged and this really isn't fun!
They said they would hold on to it for up to 90 days
What do they think they're playing at? It put me in a haze!
I called them up and spoke to three I really was quite savage
Not one of them it seemed to me had English as a first language!
I really did get out my pram I really lost my head
When one said something unbelievable, my blood pressure went to RED!
'We are holding 267 for security!'
'What security? I asked
What he said I didn't believe!

Verbatim what he said, 'We are holding the 267 for security as we have to protect the country from terrorists!' title="affraid" "affraid" src="" smilieid="40" />

'You have my name and my address my card number and more
Three little numbers on the back, hang on I'm keeping score!
You got my social security my fake pet's name as well
Protect The Country From Terrorists? That's Bullshit!' I did yell!
It's a pre-paid credit card therefore it's my money
but it seems they're holding it....

To protect the country from terrorists!

Funny that doesn't make
me feel any safer, in fact, it scares me a little!!!! title="affraid" "affraid" src="" smilieid="40" /> title="affraid" "affraid" src="" smilieid="40" /> title="affraid" "affraid" src="" smilieid="40" /> "" src="" smilieid="62" />
