On another note, to make today just that one step closer to insanity, or major irritableness, my allergies just had a field day. They got worse when I went to work and drank two bottels of water. You see when you blow gallons of liquid out of your nose in one day, well the first half of one day, you body tells you that liquids are needed. However, when you have a stuffy and runny nose, consuming large quantities of water means that the snot quite simply free-falls out of your nose- without warning. Not sluggishly either. I mean I was seriously having to catch it with a paper towel because it just dripped. Blegh
I did have a somewhat lighthearted moment today. On SaturdayI got a letter from the water company telling me that my check had been dated with the wrong date. This momentarily confused me because we use Suntrust banking and there is no way that an automatic check could have the wrong year. Sure enough, when I looked at the enclosed check and remittance slip they were to a different person and different account number. I couldn'tbelieve it. I was going to call on Monday but I found out the night before that it was a holiday. So, I called today. I explained my situation to the girl and, I kid you not, it went like this:
Me: Hi I recieved a letter stating that my check had the wrong date on it but the check is for a different account
Her: Could you give me your account number...Now could you give me the account number on the check. Okay thank you. Okay now you are saying that the letter is addressed to oyu and has your account number on it but the remittence slip nad check have a different number?
Me: Yes, but our check did not have the wrong date on it, so it looks like somehow something went wrong.
Her: So what your saying is that you have the right letter but wrong check?
Me: No, I'm saying the letter, payment slip, and letter are all for the same thing but the letter was addressed wrong.
Her: So you have the wrong letter but the right check
(At this point I had no idea what she was asking, I mean, what on earth...)
Me: No, you sent me a check that is for someone elses payment
Her: So you have the wrong check but the right letter
Me: pregnant pause...I really have no idea how to answer your question. What are you asking. All of the papers are the 'right' papers they just should not have anything to do with me.
Her:after putting me on hold for 5 minutes Okay, it looks like the two accounts are similar in the last 4 numbers and when the letter was being made, your account number was accidentaly put in and everything was sent to the wrong address
Me: slappingmy forehead in reaction to the total duhness of that Thats what I thought happened
It was actually funny, I mean the wrong letter but right check? Really, what does that mean?
Well, the house is getting finished and the move is progressing. So much still needs to be done but the majority of it is painting. The movers should be here in a couple weeks to move everything out, and then the carpet will be laid. And then my husband will fly down to drive through three states with me and our two dogs, one of which gets carsick. This should be a blast.
