too much information - the bank vs. me

me: "hi, yeah, i can't seem to access my account right now.  i was just at the grocery store and i can't seem to buy groceries right now and i'm kind of hungry"

the bank: "i'm sorry sir, we're having a system-wide outage that's preventing our debit systems from accessing account balances, so the debit system gets a 0 balance returned and declines the transaction.  our technical teams are currently aware of the situation and expect resolution within 1-2 business hours.  do you have any other questions today?"

um, no.
