Oh technology. I think it really is going to come alive one of these days and cut us all in half.
Today I was doing a little online bill paying. Because I’m pretty hip like that. And…it is really super fucking convenient, don’t you think?
So I click on all the tabs I have to and click submit…and it tells me I should call whatever phone number or try again later. Well, I can’t try again later because I have things to do and I need to get this payment in because it’s the last minute and I’ve been unemployed for a second and everything is down to the wire. Yikes!!!
I pulled out my phone and called and entered all my account numbers and said all my issues to the automated lady and finally got to speak with a real human.
He was very nice and walked me through the entire process, like I was an idiot. I kept reassuring him that I already did all that. I already did that. I know what to click, I already did it. It told me to call or try again!! I know!!!!! I just don’t have time later and need to get this paid. I know, I clicked that. I know, it just didn’t work and I need it to work. I already did it!!!
Of course, of course, of COURSE….it worked when I was on the phone with him. Of Course it did. Now I seem like a fucking loser online bill payer and he looks like the hero.
