So I’ve been dutifully sending checks to this dental and vision insurance group I have every month and then all the sudden this month it took forever to cash and then got sent back as undeliverable. So I checked their website and their address was still the same one and called their listed number where a recording also read out that address so I thought maybe my handwriting was just bad so I did it more carefully and sent it again.
Then same thing happens and I get a letter in the mail saying that they haven’t received my payment and unless I pay by this date yadayadayada — ohbytheway we also changed our address and here’s the new one and “there have been some system problems with the post office and many pieces of mail are being inadvertently returned to sender.”
No shit because you forgot to tell anyone you were moving and didn’t update your website! And yet you’re still blaming me!
So I cranked out another check and sent it to the new address since I figured the old one was lost. Nope. They cashed the old one today. I believe my exact words were “son of a bitch.” So I put a stop payment on the newer check I wrote.
I find it kind of cathartic that with knitting if you don’t like how something’s turning out you can just unravel it and start over using the same material.
I was listening to Dan Carlin’s latest Hardcore History episode and he had a line where he mentions how he’s intrigued by the extremes of human experience and I think that pretty well describes me as well. I think that’s one reason I like his show as much as I do since our minds seem to work very similarly.
we are the last generation whose baby photos weren’t taken on phones
who gives a shit tho
we’re the first generation to be able to carry around a tiny magic computer in our pockets and that’s way more awesome and interesting than this sappy nostalgic bullshit go listen to records on vinyl or smt
