“My credit card had suspicious activity—I bought a gym membership”

Some people never seem to join a gym, and there’s a joke about it. “I tried to join a gym. My credit card was declined because the cc company viewed this as ‘suspicious activity’. I know I’m lazy, but really?” was cited on Twitter on May 19, 2009. The following tweet by Miss Cook went viral on May 9, 2010:

“The bank called me because of suspicious activity on my debit card. I couldn’t believe I bought a gym membership either.”

My bank interpreted my buying a gym membership yesterday as ‘suspicious activity’ and deactivated my card. They know me too well…
