Credit Craziness



I never thought I'd say this, but sometimes it's very hard to spend money!

The other day I put in a call to pay hubby's work credit card, which had racked up quite a hefty balance with an unusual three business trips in a month. Hotels, restaurants, cash, airport shuttle and parking -- the works.

I got an automated payment system and got busy punching in the account number and other information they needed.

But when I entered the payment amount on the telephone keypad, the automated message told me the following:

"I'm sorry, you cannot enter a payment amount larger than two dollars."

Say what?!

Thinking I must have hit something wrong, I entered the amount again.

"I'm sorry, you cannot enter a payment amount larger than two dollars."

Right about then, I began fantasizing about slamming the phone down and taking my money somewhere with sand, surf and drinks with little umbrellas in them. Hey, if they don't want it...!

Finally, though, I called customer service and talked to that obsolete relic known as a "real person." I said:

1. I was told I could only pay $2. Somehow, I think you'd like more.

2. I thought you'd like to know there's a glitch in your system that may be telling everyone you only want $2 from them, too.

For anyone wondering when the economy will recover, my answer is: Not this week!

That's my two dollars' worth.

Well that's just a big ole pain in the butt, isn't it?

I have a VISA through Regions. My card expired last month,but they never sent me my replacement card. I asked for another but they still haven't sent it. Guess they don't want me using their services. That's fine. I like my cashback Discover more anyway! :-)
