I know you've got a lot going on, but I'm a little worried. You're talking about buying an $1800 tv to get back at your dad for meddling with your other tv, but you're also talking about having difficulty putting in/tying up $1500 for a checking account. (Many checking accounts waive the minimum balance if you have your paycheck direct-deposited into checking, as you'd mentioned you do with your Bluebird.) You're feeling embarrassed that you only put $300-$500/month on your card, but you're looking at paying 3-6x that amount for a revenge purchase. And you have a lot of anger going on--- screaming at the bank president (yes, they messed up and were in the wrong); screaming at your parents (yes, they've messed up and were in the wrong)--- but screaming isn't really the most effective, adult means of communication, and reflects poorly on the scream-er, no matter how much in the wrong the screamed-at is. :o(
Are there any other (mental? physical? health? something?) issues at play that would help us understand why your parents are still so involved with your financial decisions/relationships/life? The details of how family members are conducting themselves are reminding me of an adult dependent situation I experienced recently, and included a financial power of attorney.
