Just a note . . I’m not complaining about the 2.9% charge. I understand it completely. The school is passing along a cost which is the cost the company collecting the money is charging them. I can easily pay by check and would rather do that than pay the extra 2.9% but I left my checkbook in Louisiana and so far haven’t been able to find my extra checks. I told mom “just keep it til I’m back home . . I never write checks!” Guess I’d better start looking for those extra checks!
I think saying men are from Mars might be giving them too much credit! 🙂 Not that we’re in the midst of a family dispute or anything but read this scenario and tell me if you understand exactly what I meant.
Yesterday Chad received a packet from school. Last night Chad and I were going over all the info. Vince was sitting in the living room, hearing and knowing what we were doing. I said:
Oh, if we pay dorm and/or tuition by credit card, they’re going to add 2.9%.
If you understand what that means, please just respond by saying . . I understand.
If it isn’t totally clear, knowing the times in which we live with the economy and all and you think . .
- maybe if we use our credit card, the school is going to give us a 2.9% bonus
- maybe if we use our credit card, the school is going to raise Chad’s GPA by 2.9%
- maybe if we use our credit card, the credit card company is going to give us back an extra 2.9%
If even 25% of you don’t understand my statement, then I’ll accept that I was wrong. If most of you understand my statement, my husband is living on bread and water for a month .. bread that he buys from Wal-Mart and water from the sewer! 🙂
