Aggressive fraud protection

I'm in Columbus, Ohio (well, technically Gahanna I think), and I've been using my Discover card, like I usually do. I spend around $12 for breakfast, and a couple bucks at Target, before my card was denied when getting lunch.

I guess several purchases less than $25 almost 2,000 miles from my home address trips some automated systems . . . whoops . . .

Checked my email and saw a fraud protection email, so I called the number and verified those last three transactions - hopefully my card won't be declined at other places here . . .
