So, another thing on the list of “it can only happen to you Han”
Gather round children, it’s story time.
So recently I’d heard about a new JD gym opening up right near me; free parking, sauna, 300+ classes a month, my children wouldn’t be there – all sounds great right?!
Absolutely. And after my previous trauma of being weighed in a corridor and discovering my new found blubber I registered my interest online immediately and that therefore meant when they opened the sign-up portal I’d get my first month for a £5 up front payment then £19.99 a month thereafter.
Sign-up opened on Monday and I revived my designated email with my link to follow to sign up and claim my offer; and try as I might I can’t get it to work, I input my details then as I went to pay my £5 it kept bringing up an error message “your account cannot make live charges” – I check the bank, there’s money in there. I try again – nope! And again – same problem!
I should’ve just given up here and taken it as a sign that I’m destined to be Chunky not Funky.
I messaged them via Facebook and they ask me to try a different card, so I tried Davids debit card and his credit card (I know, he trusts me with it. I have no idea why either). Still not working.
Maybe here was where I should’ve just ate some cake and gone meh fuck it the worlds telling me something…
JD looked into it and messaged me back an hour later to say should be solved try again, and it worked! I paid my £5, set up the direct debit and I was happy as fucking Larry about the prospect of getting sexy by Christmas.
Then I saw it.
“Mrs Lunn your first direct debit payment of £19.99 is due 24th December”
But I only get one month at £5 then £19.99 a month after that right?….
Right. Yes. My new gym opens on the 24th November. No I didn’t think to check before I signed up.
I’m a member of a gym I can’t yet fucking go to.
