I'm pulling triple duty this week, updating this site, my Hottcops site and Mike South's site this weekend, all from home. What a rip off. South changed to Word Press format just to screw with my disco and don't think I don't know it! Oh, he said it would be easier to update, blah blah, but I know it was just so he could cheat me out of my free trip to Georgia every year!!
Yesterday I found this note taped to my front door: "We have taken your pumpkin and your geese hostage. If you ever want to see them again, leave an envelope with $50 under the "not welcome mat" and a box of Little Debbie snack cakes--not the oatmeal pies, we hate them--on the front steps tonight before you go to bed."
Instead of complying, I taped this note on the door last night: "I have received your ransom note, but I've chosen NOT to leave the requested ransom. There were three raccoons on the front porch last night, and I'd hate to have them feasting on Little Debbie cakes. They might get diabetes. I expect to find my pumpkin on the front porch when I wake up. Otherwise, I might be forced to steal some iPod's and cell phones while you kidnappers are at school. Ever so sincerely yours, Goddess. P.S. Keep the geese. I hate them."
My last couple Direct TV bills have not arrived until AFTER the due date, so I emailed Direct TV, explained the problem and complained about them not sending their bills out earlier in the month. I'm not going to pay late fees for something that isn't my problem. Luckily I've caught it each time. They emailed me and said that if my due date wasn't convenient for me I should consider paying online. Was that what I said?! And how can it be "convenient" for me when the bills arrive three days after they're due? Mr. G aka Mr. Conspiracy Theory, is convinced they're trying to force me to pay via the internet.
Personally, I don't think most of these companies give you enough TIME to pay your bill. CitiCards will send me a bill on the 1st of the month and it's usually due around the 22nd. Those bastards at Chase will send me a bill on the 1st or 2nd (and it's the 3rd and I still don't have it either) and it's due on the 10th. I think that since credit card companies are permitted to add these HUGE late fees and these HUGE interest charges if you miss one payment, they should be legally bound to give us AT LEAST 21 days to pay a bill.
