Bill went there, instead of here.
Bill certainly did.
But the Credit Card Bill should have come here, to the new house.
Instead it got returned to the credit card issuer who gave me a nasty little call.
"This is Miss Jones with Credit Card. May I speak with Cookie?"
"How do I know you are my credit card company? You could be 'Rachel, from card member services.'"
Miss Jones asked me for the last four of my social security number, and I instead asked for her last four numbers.
"Mr. Cookie, why would I give you that?"
"You called me, YOU need to give me something to prove that you are who you say you are."
Finally, I just told her that I had a previous bill, and that I was ending this call and would call the credit card people myself.
So I did. And after giving them the last four of my social security number, I said that I had received a call from Miss Jones.
"Do you know which Miss Jones you spoke with?"
No. The bitch called me and started demanding information about my returned credit card statement.
So after giving them my "mother's maiden name" (which I made up as Snagglepuss, because anyone can get that stuff off Ancestry.com), we finally got to the issue. They had to have a FAX from my with my new address.
That I can do.
Then they wanted a payment because I was past due because instead of allowing the Post Office to forward my credit card bill, it bounced back to them.
So yes, Bill went there. And next month bill is coming here, where it should.
