I have been turned over to a debt collector by a wireless phone company which shall remain nameless, except to say that their name begins with a V and rhymes with 'horizon'. For $15.52. The most astonishing thing about this is that not only have I never received a bill from them, the fact is, I don't have a wireless account. I don't have a cell phone!!!!!!!! Tim and I share a pre-paid track phone which we buy a phone card for, but we don't use a cell enough to warrant going whole hog, living in an area where reception is an issue. The name on this account is listed as my own, and the fact is, I have never had an account with them. Neither has Tim. Has to be an error. An error that I am playing hell trying to get corrected. After forty five minutes, four phone calls, waiting on hold for an interminable amount of time, what I discovered is that the people that I need to speak with are gone for the day. I need to call back tomorrow. I explained that since this is undoubtedly a mistake, I think they need to call me. They won't.
Holy cow. It takes quite a bit to get me good and fired up, but by george, I'm seeing
right this stinking minute. I've never been turned over to a collection agency in my life.
