A call from a bill collector.

I had no idea who was calling when I saw the caller id. I know at any point it could be Kay so I answered. It was a bill collector. She took $23 out of my account and then called me to say that I was $2 short. I said excuse me are you saying the auto payment that your company made was two bucks short. She said yes I said that is your fault not mine. But I will send in the $2. She said the $2 goes to Junes bill since May was paid already. I like that she would bother me for $2 when my June bill was already taken. I am glad I don't get those calls on a regular basis. I am working on July's payment so I might as well get on it.

I hate bill collectors. I don't have many unpaid bills, but when it comes to hospital bills I usually let those lapse because until they go into collections I have no idea what they are or are for. They can all go to hell frankly.

@sharon6345 lol. My aim is never to do that to you. But there you have it. There was a joke I heard once which I have always liked that might tickle you... A bill collector calls and says, "Mr. Bauer, it looks like you did not pay your bill this month." He replies, " Oh no, you see, I have a system. I can only pay five bills a month, and so I put all of my bills in a hat and have a drawing. If you did not get paid you did not win the drawing." "Sir," the bill collector replies, "That is NO way to pay your bills." "Give me any crap and next month you don't go into the hat!" Always liked that one.

It makes it hard when they take the payments out a month early.

I am ok with that but they made the payment amount so she should have known that was her mistake. Now I have this $2 money order that cost $1.50

The phone call was more to inform you that next month your bill will be $2 higher.

What a pain to buy a money order for 1.50 to pay 2.00.

@sharon6345 I am glad they do not bother you on a regular basis. I have someone that calls me and now I just hang up. They will not put what i say in my file so why bother trying to explain over and over and over again.

It's not a telephone bill. I answered the phone to a bill collector.

They shouldn't take June's until June 1st if for the month of June. It can cost you more like it did this time. I don't like auto and only have two things on it. I can stop them any time but for now I am OK since they are like Netflix and that sort of thing.
