@Allison Did I remember correctly that you're in Chicago? Are you near either of the Brown Elephant locations? That's where I donate everything. Or there are a few hospitals that run thrift stores. I've shopped at Village Discount, but never donated. They may be a decent alternative?
@BrianDau I would find out how long it was dormant and see if they have been charging a dormancy fee. Often we'll reverse any if the customer chooses to keep it open. ALSO! See if you can send a letter of direction instead of having to go in. We prefer people to come in because dormant accounts are ripe for fraud, but a clear letter should be enough.
@Madeline Shoes I always thought that too, but then in my new management role my HR department called me about some recent exit interviews they conducted and suggested some improvements we could implement in our branch. So there's a possibility!
@mayonegg I am the roommate that pays the gas bill and ours has been similar for the last 3 months. I've tried figuring it out and Peoples Gas is no help because I can get NO ONE on the phone. They also just hiked the rate and tacked on a $100 "delivery fee" for March. Hope your roommate has better luck.
@andnowlights Somehow they think I'm still a student and they only raised that price from $39 to $49 according to an email I received this morning.
@Allison drunk birthday brunch is my new favorite thing to do and I had to find a replacement this year after the sad Deleece news. Yay for SIP!
@Allison I will be forever grateful if that happens.
@calamity http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/2014-Sephora-Birthday-gift/m-p/878517 Make Up For Ever! My birthday is in December and I missed 2013's gift, but now I'm excited for this small surprise come December 2014.
@Allison might you be talking about Deleece on Clark? Southport Irving Cafe (SIP) has a nice alternative.
@rhinoceranita Yay! And good luck!
