Not impressed with american express
May 01, 2010
Today we deceided to take a trip to Honesdale about 20 minutes from here. We stopped at a tourist info centre and picked up some info on the area. Then we took a walk along the main street. I spotted a bank so thought we would go in and cash some american express travellers cheques.........well it turns out that you can't do that in many places and you have to find the right banks to cash them. They wanted us to open an account and then they would cash them.....like we need and account in Pennsylvania. So we found out that there was a super centre Walmart in the town and we have never had trouble with the cheques in Walmart so off we went. Well to make a long story short, yes we had problems and ended up using a charge card instead, not impressed. This all came after me falling down the steps in the trailer and falling on my face, ripping the skin off my right knee. We didn't even stay in town for lunch, just came right home after getting the groceries and worked on making the camping site more homey. We made a great dinner, walked the dog, talked to many people going by and just relax. We got to use our new chairs today!!!!
