Last week Lee ordered some shower walls for our neighbors bathroom project off a popular stores website. He paid with PayPal and the total for the order came out of his account and we printed off a page that had an order number, date ordered, what the item was and their 800 number to call.
He never received an email confirmation and when he tried to look it up to see when it was coming (initially said 1 weekish) we couldn’t find that particular order. Since ther money came out of his account we didn’t worry too much. A few days later we still had no email or update and we started feeling weird about it. He finally called the 800 number and the order number were recieved was not for the item we ordered and not for us. The store had no record of it whatsoever. He had to call PayPal to reverse the charge and reorder it from another place altogether. It was so weird. But it gets weirder.
I set up automatic payments with a company last month for $100 to come out on auto pay once a month. The day it was supposed to come out I received a letter from the company. Usually I don’t even bother opening the letter because I already know it’s just letting me know that I have an auto draft coming out of my account. For some of reason – I opened the letter. It read all fine and good and everything was correct until I looked at the amount. It said $762.95 was coming out that night and I went into full panic mode. I did NOT ok that amount and when I called they had no idea how that had happened. They were able to stop the payment from coming out but we were all left scratching our heads.
The next day I was supposed to go to ther dentist. I had made the appointment weeks ahead of time for a cleaning and evaluation. I went in and as I was sitting in the lobby I heard the lady behind the desk on the phone say my name and birthdate and she was asking the insurance how often they pay for cleanings. At that moment prior to the call I thought to myself “I don’t want to be here…” and she enough she calls me up to the desk and tells me insurance won’t pay for it so do I want to reschedule? Whatever. It keeps on coming –
The next morning (today) I have an appointment at the vet’s office to get the dogs microchipped. I talked Lee into postponing work to come with me and it’s not that close to our house. We got there 10 minutes early and they had us wait in the waiting room for about 15 minutes before a girl comes and tells us that their office is out of microchips and we would have to come back tomorrow after they got them in.
I had had that appointment scheduled for over a week prior.
Um… universe? Can I get a reset button please? Something is seriously off balance.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s all manageable stuff for the most part – inconvenient would be the best word, but seriously – what is happening?
I’m going to go burn some sage and meditate and pray for a while and see if I can get some answers.
