Oops

Made a mistake. Overdrew my account by $17, but bounced two things and now owe the bank $68 in fees. Stupid mistakes. One thing was .05 short and I still owe the $34 fee.

I usually have my bank accounts balanced to the penny, but I forgot about a check I wrote two weeks ago, and I put .05 cents in my other account to make it even.

So much for yesterdays excitement.

You should call your bank and see if they'll give you the fee back. We've had luck with that in the past if it was a one time incident. Definitely try - especially if you haven't had that happen in a while. They might give you your fee back.

I will try and see if they will.

I second on the idea of calling the bank.

Have you over drafted before? Or if you have; have you ever asked for a first time "I'm so sorry I made a mistake ahhh!!" fee? (also known as a courtesy fee LOL)

Ask to speak to the manager; tellers can't refund fees. A head teller can; but only under a branch managers say so.

Be sweet as pie as well; explain your situation. Honesty is the best.
