I was literally trying to pay my gas bill. That’s all I wanted to do. My husband tells me he just deposited money to cover what I was paying, so I went with it and called. After waiting forever to speak with a customer service representative, someone finally picked up. I gave them the run down I was only wanting to make a payment and gave them all info needed to do it with. Only for them to tell me the card, no multiple cards I’m trying to use all declined payment.
Excuse me? So, after only mildly freaking out I called the bank only to remember I haven’t activated my new debit card yet and it was the one I tried using. I hung up before getting all of what I needed to know and called the utility company back. It failed again.
I started freaking out by that point, thinking the money was already snatched up by some other bill we have set up for autopay. That was when the bank lady reassured me it was a check deposited not cash. The checks don’t post until midnight and thats why it declined payment.
It was too late to calm me down by that point and the panic was spilling over the edge, until it spilled completely over. My hudband asked me a question and in my response I, let’s just say it was snipped straight to the point. He knew something was wrong and thought I was mad at him. In that response the anxiety was full throttle. I came back outside to sit down and looked through my bag for my BP meds. Now that I’m 2 different kind. Then I broke down crying.
What my husband did next made me feel so good. He came out here and wrapped his arms around me holding me while it ran it’s course. I told him amist my sobs I thought someone had gotten that money before I could make the payment but because it was a check it doesn’t post until midnight. He didn’t know that either.
Now, everything is completely fine, it was before then too I just didn’t know it. Thank you Safe-Space for letting me vent.
Your Truly, Lynn
