My temple is throbbing. Banks do not operate on logic or sympathy.
Me: I’m calling on the status of my debt consolidation loan.
Bank: Yes, it appears that you were not able to be pre-approved because you have debt.
Me: Yes. The point of my refinancing my loan, as I stipulated on the application, is to pay off this debt and make my monthly payments $100 dollars cheaper. I’m already paying 350 and have done so on time and without fail since 2006. Refinancing would allow me to pay off the offending debt in question and lower my payments by 100 dollars.
Bank: Yes, but we cannot do this for you at this time because you have this debt.
Me: So, you can’t approve me for a debt consolidation loan to pay off that debt, improve my credit rating, and make monthly payments more affordable for me?
Me: Right. Why?
Bank: Because that would make sense. Oh, ha! Make sense! See, because it’s like “cents”…it’s a homophone …we’re a bank….it’s funny, right?
Me: No. No, it is not.
Sam Harris, on stem cell research (via loveyourchaos)
needs to be on my wall. yes. it does. always.
…I concur. Wow.
My cat, Mickey, was sitting in His Chair© when I heard him, all of the sudden, started to growl and hiss for no apparent reason (which is uncharacteristic of him as he’s a sweetheart).
I turned to look at him and his claw was caught in the end of his own tail. He then started to spin around in the chair, continuing to growl and hiss at himself until it finally became unstuck.
Honestly, I tried to help him but I was immobilized by laughter and I couldn’t see for the tears streaming down my face.
Oh my god, I nearly tinkled. XD
