Sunny and hot
Massive anxiety dreams last night. I absolutely do NOT want to go into the city today.
On top of that, one of my credit card companies claims it hasn’t received a payment I sent 12 days ago. Now, I sent out a stack of bills that day, and ALL of the others were posted between the 5th and the 7th. You know it’s just been sitting on someone’s desk all last week because the person was on vacation. On top of that, the credit card company refused to accept a proof of payment I offered to send, refused to give me the name of anyone in their corporate office, etc., and will continue to rip the my credit rating to shreds instead of putting a “hold” on everything while we track the payment and find out if it’s astray, sitting in a pile somewhere, or been stolen.
I tracked down the name and address of the CEO on the Internet. I wrote a strongly worded letter to the company, sending CC’s to the CEO, the state attorney general of the state in which the company headquarters is based, and my own state attorney general.
I’m very upset – I purposely paid the bill early, and paid three times the minimum so that I’d have money on the card for next week’s trip and now . . .nothing.
Thank you, George W., for continuing to set policies so that corporations and big business can feed off of the people in this country who actually do the work and keep it running and are just trying to live their lives. Thank you so much for making sure your friends get to be the vultures on the carrion of the nation.
Oh, and if you think I’m being unfair to blame him for this, go back and read some of the pro-corporate, anti-individual legislation he’s signed over the past five years and THEN come back and talk to me.
So much for a good start to my day. So much for being able to mail out the stack of stuff that’s waiting to be mailed.
Let’s hope this does NOT set the tone for the rest of the day.
