I am paying bills today. I am one of those oddities that still balances our checkbook. Even though it is no longer a checkbook but a record of debit card transactions, bill pay services, transfers, deposits and only two maybe three actual checks per month.
I looked at the AT&T automatic payment and sacrebleu! That is higher than I recall. I decided to self-service manage my account and find ways to lower my bill. I barely log in and up pops CHAT. I use it because … well … you know they offered ….
I get a message the wait time is 3 minutes. Really? You approached me and not the other way around. But whatever. I peruse around and realize the installment plans could be paid off with my bonus. Screw it. That is my bonus. I want to use it for something else.
Then Nelson from AT&T joins me and is going to take a look-see. He comes back offering a 10GB plan which means nothing to me and only $18 savings. Uh, no thanks. I tell him I am going to look around a bit more then log out. That I may or may not pay off installment plans. His response is priceless:
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day Jill. Don’t forget to smile!
Uh, you did not just tell me that Nelson! Now you poked the bear. Lol! And my stream comes full circle – I am gonna blame it on the weather. F off Nelson. I don’t wanna smile. I wanna feel sorry for myself. But ok, you got me. I am smiling despite what I just said.
Time once again for #SoCS. Come on in, the water’s fine. Linda has given us our prompt and we’re ready to go!
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “door.” Write about a door you walked through this week that wasn’t your own. Enjoy!
Hmmm. Ok. Door. Think, think, think!
This week was a weird one for me. I had places to go and people to see. I must’ve walked through more doors than I could shake a lamb’s tail at … shake a stick at … shake your tail feathers baby ala Blues Brothers cuz ya know I watched that on TV this week. Nothing else good was on thank you Winter Olympics. I am so over you. I am ready to get back to my regularly scheduled programs.
Hello my name is J-Dub and I am addicted to TV!
What the heck is the origin of shake a lamb’s tail? Isn’t it two shakes of a lamb’s tail? So much for door. That big wooden thing has closed. I think I made all this lamb’s tail stuff up up and today no research. Timer is set and I am truly streaming. Yahoo! Yahtzee! Bingo! Bunco!
Look up couch potato in the dictionary and there you will find me. You know just lounging and watching TV. In my phat clothes. So sue me. No don’t sue me! It wasn’t me I tell ya.
Hmmm, maybe the door that is not my own that I should’ve walked through this week was the gym! Don’t let the gym door hit you where the good lord split you! Lol! Have you lost your damn mind J-Dub? Well you know she has. Sssshhhh. Don’t tell her. Let’s just pretend that this never happened.
Today’s ramble was brought to you by the frenetic mind of one J-Dub McGillicutty. That’s me! As always, more to come.
