Blind woman threatened with suit over 1-cent - CNN.com
Eh, she got an automated letter and nothing more. It's something a quick phone call coulda fixed.
I regularly leave $5 to $10 unpaid on large debts (furniture, last round of utilities, etc.). They always write it off.
It's obnoxious. I don't know why I do it.
Bet she didn't see that one coming....
lol. I just like the comment made by that one person "I just don't see why it wasn't paid when the bill initially came in." How do you send a penny?
It's almost as funny as the complaint that stamps alone cast 47 cents. Again, a simple phone call could have fixed this non-issue. But because she's old and blind, it gets great media hyping behind it.
Okay I know we are in a recession but that's rediculous.
I've never understood sending out a bill for less than what a stamp costs. Just let it carry over until the next one and add it on.
I love how the fact that she is blind and old is supposed to make us go ZOMG HOW EVIL WHAT A POLICE STATE.
It was automated, and only a penny. I wish my utility bills were one cent.
I guess the city of Attleboro, MA needs every penny they can get.
About 12 yrs ago, I thought I finally paid off a loan from a credit union. The nextweek I stopped by there to cash my paycheck and some lady clerk told me that I still owe 11 cents from the loan. So I said to her, "My God!!! Here let me pay it, so this credit union won't go out of business and you all won't be out of a job!!!" Some lady who was standing behind me inline heard me say that and she was laughing.
Isn't Attleboro just north of Pawtuckett/Providence?
Damned automated computer systems not using discretion when dealing with the elderly.
It's east, and North Attleboro is west of that.
lol. funniest quote of the thread
good sir you have just made my day.
Nah -you are just supposed go ZOMG HOW STUPID!
