I get my online bill via text message expecting to see the usual amount of around 45-50 bucks. Imagine my surprise to see over EIGHTY DOLLARS!! I've never had a bill over 55-60 let alone EIGHTY! So I call customer service to find out why it's so screwy....and guess what? Turns out they tacked a data service charge of 13.93 for this month and another 15.00 for next month and a 1.99 charge for something I never had (a few dollars were due to the partial month since I changed plans). Awesome. I was able to get the 13.93 taken off but I still have to pay the 16.99 for the other stuff or face a $5 late charge. Wtf? Thankfully I'm not that bad off and can afford it...but geez. In the days of computers, they can't take this off? Who wants to take a bet that next month I'll still have these "charges?"
And yet another reason companies hate me.... I fill out rebates. I am a rebate machine. I did call out Verizon on that one as I've already received a $50 rebate for my phone:-) This is on top of the rebates for my tax program and filing my taxes online.
Not that any of you should be shocked that I actually enjoy figuring out the math and making sure it all adds up correctly;-)
One final thing: A friend of mine told me about "opposite day." Am I the only one that never did that when little? Warning that link may make your head spin or start trying to figure out Venn Diagrams (or not;-)).
OK, me and my scatter brain are heading away for a while.
