The lovely garbage man decided to stop picking up our trash. JUST PERFECT! So I called Waste Management. It seems that we stopped paying our bill. Hmmmmm, that is kind of hard to believe since it is set up for auto-payment and has been for years. I was told that they informed our driver that we stopped paying so not to pick up the trash. Even Den was mad about that statement. Again, I repeated that how could I stop paying if YOU are the ones that are supposed to be charging to my credit card. I asked the woman to look at our account and nowhere in 18 years have I ever missed a payment. EVER! She then informed me that since my credit card expired in September that was the reason. I told her that I updated it. Long story short, it was all my fault. When we did get off the phone, I checked my account with them and I had updated the credit card info just like I said. But the lovely and frustrating woman from Waste Management did inform me that she would tell the driver that we paid our bill so he was allowed to pick up our trash. Oh joy.
This is not a fun problem to have.
I told DJ this problem and he said that I should just admit the truth that we spent the trash money at the casino. Smart-ass! Oh did I tell you that Den and I are going back to Vegas in April?
