Let me first start with a little history.
Last month I went to Kohls, to RETURN something.
I went back to customer service, returned, and asked what my balance was.
I was directed to the phone on the wall to call and check.
They told me I had a credit of 129.22.
I think I stood up a little straighter, 
and looked around to see if anyone else heard this new found blessing that came upon me.
Now I knew I had returned some items, 
but the Lord himself knows I don't have any extra money to be giving away. 
I did ask, 
"Are you sure?"
They confirmed the balance.

Well it was like Christmas for me!
Out I go with new insight and figured, 
let's just see what Mabel might need.
I felt like spreading my arms right outside customer service, and saying it's all mine.

1 Hour later:
5 tops
sweater and vest for my granddaughter and an indian top, it was fringed on the bottom. 
She loves it.
Yes I got all that  for the 129.22
I think I even had a credit balance left over,
with the 30% off coupon and the Kohls cash I already had.
And to top it off they gave me more Kohls cash.

Leaving the store walking with my chest out a little further,
I can't wait to go home and tell my husband.

The days to follow I would come down stairs, dressed for work, and he would comment,
"Is that one of your new tops?"
I was surprised he even noticed.
Again I would stand a little straighter and say YES!
After a week of new tops, he asked,
"Just how many tops did you get?"
I was glad it was Friday.
Oh yea, I got 7 very needed pairs of socks too.
I knew he wouldn't notice those until he did the laundry.
YES. that is his job!

Now lets jump to today 
Our Internet is down at home, so he sent me to work with the bills to pay.
He has his little list of what to pay and the amount, with the original bill.
I look at the electric bill and there is a disconnection notice.
According to the dates, they should have shut it off on Oct 25th.
I gave them a call and asked what was going on,
 and if they were suppose to shut it off, why didn't they?
  She said the storms on the coast caused them to send everyone there and they didn't have the man power to come out and physically turn it off.
Thank you Super Storm Sandy.
The bible says, "Something good always comes out of something bad"
Here's my good! 
I had light and heat.

So when I get all the answers I need from her,
 I find out we..... I mean He, didn't pay Octobers bill.

I called to let him know, and he swears he paid it.
So back I go to the bank web site to verify everything.

There it is:
You guessed it!

Kohls is right above Ohio Edison, on the bill pay list.
$129.22 to Kohls

When I called to let him know, the first thing out of him mouth.
"Damn it Debbie, 
now you have to pay the electric bill that's due now
and get Kohls off the pay list!"

I cracked up and  I told him I didn't have it. 
 I was wearing it!

But I did thank him.

Poor Ray I'm going to be the death of him!

  1. Hi-lar-i-ous! I once paid the cable bill and gave them an extra $1000.00! It took me months to straighten that one out.


Thank you for your comment, we look forward to reading it.
