I really hadn’t paid much attention to our bank statements in the past; Tom did that. In the late hours of the night, as I was spending more time bonding with, I mean “learning,” Quicken I discovered a new charge from the gym.
I was pissed – as we evident from my post. This morning, I thought of deleting my ranting post, but then I changed my mind. Yes, I was still mad.
Unfortunately, the kids got a piece of my anger this morning. They weren’t guilty of anything but being tired. So everything happened at s-l-o-w speed, when it needed to happen at FAST speed. When I finally arrived at work, I reached for the phone to attempt to direct my anger at a more appropriate victim.
Poor David, at the local Gold’s Gym, was the lucky recipient of my anger. It started out gentle, but grew to a full percolation the more he tried to direct me.
– The form had been completed and mailed.
– They had already been told via phone and in person.
– But the charge still happened.
I knew it wasn’t David’s fault, but I yelled at him anyhow. Instead of brushing me off, he was sympathetic.
I faxed my copy of the form that I had mailed back in March. I was thankful that they had two-part NCR forms. Although Gold’s corporate office handles the charges and the termination of contracts, David did follow up on my behalf. David’s sense of customer service was GOLDen.
I am again thankful that there are “good” people out there. The world isn’t out to get me. It may take some extra phone calls, but it *will* all work out. At least I have to believe that.
