Eyeing credit card use at the pumps


Hello all,

I know this is true because it did happen to me last week. From now on I will always press the CLEAR button at the pump after I am done, or better still I will not use the machine's at the pumps, I will go inside.

Jim just told me about something that happened to one of his coworkers. She used her credit/debit card to purchase gas at the pump (like most of us do).

She received her receipt like normal. However, when she checked her statement, there were 2 $50 charges added in addition to her purchase. Upon investigation, she found out that because she did not press the
'CLEAR' but ton on the pump, the employee inside the store was able to use her card to purchase his/her own gas! To keep this from happening, after you get your receipt, you must press the 'CLEAR' button or your information will be stored until the next customer inserts their card.
Be sure to tell all your friends/family so that this doesn't happen to them!

from a friend.

An eye on the Parliament

What's the fracas? A very busy House - the Parliament. Or my friends use to say "rumah Pak Leiman". Did the vote of no confidence ever managed to reach the house? The postman and woman couldn't find the address? Who are they trying to kid? We all know its a non starter. Yong Teck Lee did not know the difference. A square wouldn't fit into a circle. He is barking at the wrong tree and it was never right from the beginning.

Lets tell him how to do it right. First he needs to detail the grievances. Then he needs his Supreme Council to agree and endorse it. Then he needs to communicate this properly to the Barisan Nasional Secretariate. When and where the BN supreme Council sits, thats when his motion can be tabled. He will definitely be outvoted but will not be expelled from the BN. There is no disciplinary action that can be taken against SAPP because its done in the Barisan spirit and that will make the Prime Minister and Chairman of BN looks stronger and then he can swear in as a Senator and start working for the Brunei, Sarawak, Sabah and Philippines growth area and Pak Lah will stop the Anti Corruption Agency from proceeding to investigate him.

But since he had done it wrong, he is going to face a lot of consequences. Disciplinary action being taken, SAPP expelled from BN and they will stick a good case for all his misdeeds.

Good luck Yong Teck Lee on your future endeavours!

Eh and whats this about the press being barracaded? Whats happening? Suddenly a solemn and prestigious house is turning into a squatter area where political pundits and friends of the anti establishment movement congregates. It will take sometime to return to order. If its not done right then it will be a house of disorder.

As a close friend used to whisper to me, when the Leadership is not blessed (pimpinan yang tidak berkat), you will see that there will be a lot of problems - whether its small, medium or big.
