I’m a Slave 4 That 1 Thing
Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.
The 1 thing that I did this week was: I called my credit union and try to do that thing where you ask for something and don’t take no for an answer. I wanted them to stop charging me ATM fees, because, WHY NOT. So I called the credit union and was on hold for a few minutes and then something really important happened (someone maybe gchatted me? or a good song came on Pandora?) and I hung up and wrote an email instead (“I would like to request that you refund all these fees I’ve already paid you, etc”).
A lady emailed me back the next day and … said no without saying no (“I understand you are concerned about incurring fees on your account”). But she did find one fee she could help me out with going forward, a $3.95/mo. estatement fee that I didn’t even know I was paying. All I need to do is call her to tell her how I’d like to proceed.
