This may sound a tad geek-ish or computer-ish but it’s not.

I recall a day I had to make a transaction with my mobile app. It wasn’t giving me positive results. I kept hitting the send button like hitting it would reset its madness to normalcy.

That never worked.

My reason for the non-stop hit on my screen wasn’t because I was angry or disappointed or anything on the moral negative meter. It was because of this: The error info I got ought to be resolved with the adjustments I made but it didn’t work.

So, I had to login to my Internet banking portal. If the banks know how much I hate the web portals of their banking facilities, they’d never send me any mail or text message to sign up for that. UBA, especially with their, “You haven’t used your U-Direct lately. Need help? Please let us know, call 012808822 or mail U-Direct is your Bank with you anytime, anywhere!

“No, I’m not calling or mailing, UBA. U-Mobile is my bank with me anytime, anywhere,” goes my response.

So, I had to login to my web portal to resolve the issue. I attempted the transaction again. It didn’t work. I got a detailed error code and I resolved the error within seconds.

So, I guess my point here is that just as it applies to the computer or tech world, Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO) applies to the real world (earth), too. If your solution isn’t working or getting you positive results, asides a possible wrong input, run a check on your error reports. If they’re not detailed or explanatory enough, getting a working solution won’t be a walk in the park.

P.S: UBA isn’t the bank I had this ish with.
