I often marvel at how much energy it takes just to stay in place. Took care of -- well, initiated work on -- three different things today.
First, back to the Affordable Care Act -- i got not one, but two late notices that I hadn't paid my premium. The invoice was mailed on January 2, and one of the reminders was 'printed' on January 3. The other one was a few days later. So I called and was reassured, once again, that I had paid.
Next, I had gotten a Netflix a few days before New Year's Eve that I know arrived. I had it in my hand in my living room, then took it downstairs to my bedroom where the TV is where it disappeared into thin air. At this point, all i can think of is that I accidentally threw it away. But of course I held out hope that I'd find it and finally gave up. Went to Netflix site to 'report a problem' and one of the choices was that 'I lost or damaged a disc and want to pay for it." It really is fair that I pay for it as I lost it. So I click that on, am told my credit card would be charged $14 which I thought was fair and was told that if I find the disc my money will be refunded. Fair enough. This whole process took (literally) five seconds and nobody yelled at me or scolded me and I didn't have to describe the layout of my apartment or tell someone my life story. I know, I know -- should have done it sooner.
Then I got my annual bill for my co-op insurance which goes up, up, up every year. The insurance is through Travelers and since I had the exact numbers in front of me I actually shopped it. I don't have that many choices as many companies won't do co-ops. So i called Geico which was about $30 less and I thought not worth changing for and then I called State Farm and it was about $300 cheaper so I'm going to call State Farm tomorrow to make sure I am getting the exact coverage.
