While I was home today on my lunch hour the mail arrived. I grabbed it out of the box on my way back to work. I casually flipped through the pile and one envelope in particular grabbed my attention. The Phone bill..........
If you remember, I have been at war with the phone company. It's evolved Into a full blown feud. If you are new here, I blogged about it twice already. I won't go into the details again but every time I call them they tell me it's fixed and then the next bill comes and its still wrong.
So I looked at the envelope with a mix of foolish optimism and trepidation. Would this be the month that it is finally fixed?? I opened the envelope........and instead of seeing the $50 amount I should have........it says I owe $224 PLUS a $25 NSF penalty!!
I LOST IT. That's it - Unleash the flying monkeys and may they reign terror and destruction upon your house!!
I called that number and the poor guy on the other end of the phone was probably wishing he'd called in sick. I was not in a good mood. I demanded to speak to a manager. It didn't happen. After 40 minutes on the phone I'd had enough. I hung up. I thought my head might actually explode.
