Title Company Sends Money Six Months Later

June 27th, 2007 at 07:20 am

Got a check for $40 from the title company that dealt with our house sale back in January. I remember catching some errors on the closing statement and getting a snooty, unapologetic attitude from the woman there when I pointed them out and asked they be corrected. The much larger errors were fixed, but there still was a smaller amount that didn't seem right on the revised statement. I was too stressed out to bother with it anymore after the whole process of selling and moving.

So now I get a check from them with a letter stating I should have received this additional $40 at close of escrow. There is no apology for the error or for taking six months to correct it. They did put in bolded print, "Please keep in mind this check will become stale dated after 60 days of the issuance date of the check." The last sentence reads, "We trust that this transaction has been handled to your satisfaction and look forward to the opportunity of seeing you again in the near future." Somehow I don't think I'll ever feel inclined to use them again.

OT: A Sock

Well, it's not quite done, but this is how my first sock is coming out. I was so excited about finally making it around the heel successfully.

Blue Cross Billing

June 5th, 2007 at 08:37 pm

As if Blue Cross isn't taking enough of my money already, I just read their notification informing me that I will now be charged a $2 fee for each paper bill. Argh. I must choose to have automatic electronic debits to avoid the fee, but I can't stand having automatic deductions. I've tried it before, and it makes me feel like I'm not in control of my own money. And I would always forget when a deduction was going to occur and have to scramble to avoid bouncing checks. I'll stick to paper billing as long as I can.
