When going to the pet store to buy $60 of pet food and training treats, it best to look at which silver debit card you are tying to use.

It may just be your Sam's Club membership card.
They do look awfully alike.
I know that you were feeling a little flushed and embarrassed as you were trying for the third time to make that Sam's card work.
However, exclaiming in a voice louder than usual, "I know there is money in this account, I just checked on-line before I got here!" was probably not the best way to react...nobody really believes that story anyway.
At least this is better than that time when you were at Costco and you had bought an entire, overflowing, cart of groceries, and realized that you had not transferred the grocery money over from the savings account (I do this in as effort to not spend on things I don't really need. It probably sounds crazy, but it works for me.)
On that day you really did have insufficient funds. That really stunk. And it was no use trying to explain to everybody that you DID IN FACT have the money, it was just in another account.
Sometimes the best course of action is to not say anything at all.
Anyway, highly caffeinated Coffeegal, slow down a little.
Not everything on the agenda will get done today. That's OK.
Think of the good things: You won't have to boil chicken and rice for the dogs' dinner tonight, and in all likelihood you won't try to pay for groceries with a membership card again.
Then again, knowing you...
Just be grateful for opportunities to laugh at yourself.
