Today is a quiet day at The Company. I’ll be covering the front desk from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. today, leaving me with 15 minutes at the end of the day to finish Mr. Russell’s presentation for his 9 a.m. meeting.
I have to pick up the kids tonight AND I have band practice so it’s going to be a rough remainder of the day.
In other news, I was thisclose to being a caller on the Radio Chick show last night. They were doing a segment on credit card scams and the credit card companies’ response in handling them. I called and mentioned our Memphis trip – I had been making lots of gift purchases on my credit card and the cc company called our house and got my sister. My sister informed them I was on vacation, and they said they were calling about suspicious activity on my card. She said, “They’re on VACATION – in the very town you are calling about.” Well, the cc company required me to call them back, so my sister called my cellphone and said, “You need to call your Visa card company because they are about to put a hold on your card.”
The Radio Chick screener liked my story enough to put it on the air. I sat on hold for about five minutes and then they went to commercial. The screener came back on the line and said, “Sorry, they’ve decided to end the segment because they have a guest coming in.”
THISCLOSE, people! *lol*
