...I know they have a job to do, but they can be so aggressive about it!! I recently moved into my own place and did the whole change of address spiel with the Post Office and my Employer. Well somehow, somewhere, my check has not shown up. It's been almost two weeks. I'm almost out of gas (thank goodness for Honda's gas mileage capabilities) and some groceries would be nice.
So this chick calls me on Monday from a place that I owe a $65.00 payment to. I've already met her once and she's so snotty you just want to spank her and put her in the corner. She asks "when I'll be in to pay my payment"
and I said
"I don't know. I haven't rec'd my paycheck. "
"Why haven't you received it?"
"Because I moved and did a change of address and I think they lost it"
"Well I need to know a day when you're going to be in"
"I don't know, when I get paid, you'll get paid"
"Well pick a day"
"So you will be in on Wednesday then?"
"Yes, if I get my paycheck"
"No, you need to come in whether you get your paycheck or not"
"Well if I don't get my paycheck, I'll have no money to make a payment"
"You can borrow some to make a payment"
"Um, yeah, let's see, it's been almost two weeks since I've been paid and I'm going to borrow money to pay you? No, you're not that important to me, I'll borrow for myself first."
"I'm sensing an attitude Mr. Randall and I just want you to make a payment"
"This is not an attitude, this is me telling you the truth, I don't have any money, when I get money I will pay you. I don't see how this is so hard to follow."
"We'll see you on Wednesday Mr. Randall"
"Hopefully, good bye."
Well, I still haven't got my check and today is Wednesday, so I called her to tell her this is a courtesy call to let her know I will not be in today. She didn't laugh.
