#575

Well. Its crazy. Life has it in for me, I swear to gawd!

I'm broke. Broke, broke, broke. Not quite destitute, but I won't be clothes shopping for a few weeks. And I got a letter in the mail today. A few months ago my health insurance company merged with another, and I got a pay out. Yay for free money. Well, it wasn't really free. I had to give it to them first...

Anyhoo. I got a letter in the mail today. It seems I wasn't paid quite enough last time. Woot! More free money. I flip to the statement to read just how much I get and I see...

$5.37

Anti climatic much?

One former employer's stock plan pays me $.88 every quarter, direct deposit into my account!

You know I was once owed $0.02 by Telstra on a closed account and they sent me a letter each month to let me know I should apply for a cheque to have the payment forwarded it to me. I eventually called them, the operator I spoke to though it was quite funny, but cancelled the two cents for me. Telstra then sent me another six months worth of zero balance letters. So much for trying to save them some money. At least you can actually physically buy something with $5.37!

Mutant's story is so classically Telstra! They're idiots.
