Humor: True story

My brother-in-law’s friend recently lost his father. As executor of the will the friend was dealing with all the financial matters. He called a credit card company to let them know the father’s bill was going to be paid, thought it would be a bit late because his father had died. The lady on the phone on the phone was very insistent that it be paid right then. The friend said it would be paid, but that it would be a couple weeks. The lady said if it was late it would ruin his father’s credit rating.

Wow. That's harsh. And funny. Some people, I tell ya! They just don't get it sometimes, do they?

My guess is that at least part of what happened was the lady wasn't really listening. She had a script and had said similar words hundres of times a day.

But yes, there are some people who really do seem clueless.

I would never pay it. Just let it accumulate interest. What are they going to do?
