Ugh, hit a bit of a rough patch for a few weeks (good lord, has it been that long?) where work was long and draining, the weather was hot and humid, and I just had zero mental, emotional, and physical energy by the time I got home. I was also not sleeping well, which did not help whatsoever. Thankfully I did nothing but sleep this past weekend which was a godsend, and I feel human again.
I am sort of freaking out about bills. It seems that whenever I pay them online via my bank the payments aren’t actually going through for one reason or another, and now I have late fees. I need to call around tomorrow to all of them when I get home and see what I can work out, and set up bill payments via their websites, I guess. (I prefer my own bank so I can track everything more easily, but if the money isn’t going to actually GET SENT, I should do it the other way.) Not sure who I need to yell at about the bill payment system, though I did send a message about what was going on and hopefully I will get some sort of resolution. Pretty pissed off and tempted to ask them to pay the fees since it is their fault for the payment not going through, but I’m sure somehow it’ll be chalked up to “user error” and they will just laugh at me.
Random anecdote: my first car insurance guy down in Cincinnati was so cool, when my account was double charged by mistake and I got an overdraft fee, he paid it for me out of his own pocket. I stayed with him for YEARS for that simple act of awesome. Nothing quite like knowing someone’s got your back.
Hopefully someone at my bank will have mine.
