Today, the government froze my bank account for not paying college debt, and now I can't access my 0.30 cents. FML

.30 = $0.30 or 30 cents.

What this person meant is that they didn't put a dollar sign, and if they had the word "cents" would be unnecessary. As they wrote it, 0.30 is the same as writing ".3" meaning that yes, technically OP wrote that they had .3 cents, which would be less than a cent, which means less than a penny.

He said 0.30 CENTS that's les Ethan one cent

.03 would be less than a penny. Sounds like you need some college debt, or at least go back to 5th grade math.

Pretty sure comprehending the fact that 30 cents is thirty pennies is a bit more basic than fifth-grade level. It's more common sense than actual math.

why be a dick about it

You know what they meant, stop trying to be a smart ass

At least they only have hold on 30 cents, but make arrangements with the creditor and they should take the garnishment off your accounts.

Sounds like this is a lose lose situation. The government drove your account cause they want to get paid and your broke and can't pay the government.

Government didn't force them to take out s loan. it's a loan. you have to pay it. I have them for my school. it's hard to pay, yes, so you have to ask for a payment plan. you can't just hide then get mad when they force you to pay up. it's a loan not a handout.

Wait they can do that

If the aid is federal, then yes, indeed they can. In fact, not only can they freeze your assets, they can take most (if not all) of your tax return, and garnish your wages (meaning that if you're employed by any place that reports income to the government, which is practically every job, they'll contact your employer, and the employer will give a certain percent of what you make directly to the government before you receive anything).

<p>I think it's a message. The government wants you to work under the table.</p>

less than a third of a cent
