One time when I was 16, I wrote a check and got charged 30 dollars by the bank for overdrawing my account. What was the magical purchase? A soda... for $1.05. Life lesson learned: learn to balance your account! So you'll have money to spend, even for silly things like stamps, sodas, or whatever.

hey, at least you didn't get an overdraft fee for $30. The new york times did an article about overdraft fees earlier (this is not spam, this is information) http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/09/your-money/credit-and-debit-cards/09debit.html

TBF you deserve what you get for trying to use your card for 57 cents. Next time, go to the ATM and take some cash out - and check your balance at the same time. Its because of people like you that I end up queueing 10 minutes longer than necessary in the supermarket when I'm on lunch. There is no excuse for even considering paying for something under $10 on card.

if you are irresponsible and weren't paying attention to how much money you had in your account ... YDI. if you balance your account regularly and knew you had $1,000, and this post is about how you discovered someone had stolen your identity and charged shit to your card ... FYL. need more info, OP!
