I’m Gonna Blame The Weather for my sour mood.
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.
As always, more to come.
