Locked and Loaded


“for those days when I’m just on the edge……”

——————————————————————————————————

If I open one more piece of mail delivered by the US postal service; from one of my creditors; announcing the excitement of their “new” statement format, that their customers will surely find to improve navigation and reading of our monthly bill………………………………….

AND…………………….BTW…………………………………

to pay for this new format we’re increasing you monthly charge by $10 bucks……………………………..

I’m going to be like a rabid dog and come off the chain!!!!

It was just a few months ago I changed my cable TV package to the lowest rate to help manage my budget since becoming unemployed. 

I have skeleton channels; no movie channels, no sports channels, no news channels, no food channels…………………….

well, you get the picture.

Local channels, CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX.  It works as long as I can get “The Big Bang Theory”, all the “NCIS”, “American Idol” and an occasional Texans football game.  Any extra channels are…………………………………..

well…….extra.

So……………………you increase my monthly bill; did you increase my channels?

Well, of course not.

If I refuse the new statement format, will my monthly rate go back to what it was??

Well, of course not.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

I know to some of you $10 bucks is not a big deal; you give your 5 year olds more than this for their allowance.

But I received two statements last month announcing “new” formats; my car insurance and my home owners insurance.  Both of which I worked diligently just a few months ago to get the rates lowered, only to have them increased…………………………..

each by $10 bucks.

Whatever happened to increases of $1 and $2 bucks?

It doesn’t sting quite as bad.

Not only have my monthly debts increased by $30 bucks, but my last two unemployment direct deposits were decreased by $10 bucks each.

Did anyone bother to send me an announcement about that??

Uh………..NO!!!

I’m not very good with math, but I can add and subtract and when you add $30 bucks to your monthly expenses and you subtract $20 bucks from your income, I think that’s a $50 bucks deficit and when one is unemployed and trying to make ends meet…………………..

$50 bucks is a lot.

    Ohhh, dear–bless your heart–I’d be locking and loading too, you betcha!! Ten bucks is HUGE–to change the statement format??? I hope you called and questioned this, as it sounds hinky to me. Just a thought but, are you able to view your TV shows on line? If so, you might could dump the TV portion of your bill. And it seems like there should be an explanation owed regarding your unemployment checks decreasing…. Best wishes, and God bless you with increased provision from His Abundance.
