  1. Falsifying family status in an application to a major financial institution? Um, I’ll pass.

  2. The tweet actually did name her (Kimberly S) and which gate she worked, which may or may not change your views on the situation, but you should probably correct that in your summary, Gary.

  3. Thanks for the heads up on the TD Go card. I hadn’t looked into Visa Buxx options too much as I had heard the good ones had been discontinued… but this isn’t bad!

  4. @Chris what i meant to suggest was that she wasn’t really identifiable from the tweet, i have clarified to say didn’t give her last name

  5. Gary, why would you ever load with TD Buxx and cash out via Amazon or Kiva? What am I missing?

  6. No endorsement implied it was more about examples of the way people use these things rather than trying to make everything 100% explicit

  7. The southwest incident is yet another example of an over-the-top abusive gate agent. Using the bogus ‘I feel threatened’ excuse to make him delete the tweet makes everyone less safe. Next time just send the tweet later.
