CBK Problem!

I slept around 11:30PM last night and my eyes were wide open at around 3:00AM! I could not go back to sleep :-S So I went on facebook, checked my email messages, rearranged things in my bathroom, surfed the internet... Oh and read on Yahoo! that Natasha Richardson died after ski accident :-(..... still, not feeling sleepy! Went on youtube and watched some videos, but no.. that did not work either! I turned off the light and closed my eyes but I just could not sleep!

I decided to go back online and check my bank account(s), and one of which is an account with CBK. I remember opening that account for one purpose only, which was buying Tijari Funds. Its been a while since I checked that account... and when I logged in I saw that they have been deducting KD2 each month since August!!

It states that when your balance falls below KD100 they start deducting KD2 as a fee. I always kept it at, at least, that minimum. So get this...

August 5th '08, my balance was around KD100
August 6th '08, I withdrew KD50 and my balance was around KD50
August 7th '08, I transfer KD51 to have a new balance of around KD101...

Then my account started to drop KD2/month totaling to KD16 with a credit of KD2 in January.. so they added KD2 for some reason and deducted KD16 in the course of eight months! I called the call center and he said this was done because at one point in time it got to less than KD100, so they decided to do so... I am redeeming my fund on Monday and closing the account too on the same day!

I still can't go to sleep! Ughhhhhhh!


UPDATE I:
Its now 5:30, I am still awake... Gonna watch Grey's Anatomy S5E17

UPDATE II:
And I arrived to work LATE! How is that possible when I woke up around 4 hours prior to my actual wake up time...

UPDATE III:
AlTabtabaie was interviewed on BBC - Arabic FM while I was driving to work, and he used a hadith to describing the parliament dissolving...
He said: أبغض الحلال عند الله حصل وهو حل المجلس
Isn't that HARAM?!

Wow this sucks! And at a bad time too. Dont blame them though. They have more debts than all of us maybe, you're richer than them now perhaps :)

I managed to sleep at 1 AM and found my eyes wide open at 3:30. Kept in bed till 5, perhaps shut it down for a while, but eventually realized its time to make use of the wasted hours. After all, they are nice and quite hours.

My sleep is missed up lately, but at least I'm decreasing them slightly thus gaining extra hour here and there.

I know I have been through something similar with NBK...they say if ur account is under 100 for a certain time they will deduct KD2 but if its just for a day or 2 or 1 week...they dont...I never understood their policies!
