So what has me stressed today? Nothing life threatening, I’m putting my reaction off to being tired and having a splitting headache but I spoke with our bank about how we can pay outstanding bills online after we move because there is a lag between leaving and the last set of bills. They politely informed me that we can’t because the account has to be closed. Um… ok.
They suggested contacting the credit card company and having the address change to the US address so we can get the bill and pay it or see if we can get the bill electronically.
Sooo…. I call the credit card company and make my 1st mistake by telling them it’s me and not L. They run me through 8 million security questions only to tell me: (a) L has to call to change the address (b) The only electronic statement would be sent to the bank (c) oh and if your bank account is closed you can’t have a credit card.
So now I explain that the issue isn’t that we want to keep said credit card, or that we want to keep the bank account but that we want to make sure the credit card is PAID properly and how do we do that? They brilliantly inform me that we pay the credit card in advance. Ok so what is the balance on the credit card? They can’t tell me because I’m not L. Can you tell me if you received the payment that we sent on 9/20 for XXX chf? No, because…. I’m not L.
Seriously, could we make being a responsible adult who wants to make sure everything clears and is paid off any more difficult? Actually, I am sure they could. Thank god for cash and Peanut M&M’s
