You know how once someone gets on your bad side, nothing they can do is right?

Well, Rogers Cellular just pissed me off again.  They charged me a late payment of $0.90.

My payment was due March 6.  I set Royal Bank to make the payment on March 6.  Royal Bank took away that money on March 6.

But Rogers says they only got the money on March 8.  So I asked Royal Bank if this was a usual delay, or what had happened. They said:

When paying your bills through Online Banking, it may take up to five business days for the creditor to apply the payment to your account. In most cases, the creditor will date the payment to reflect the actual payment date. However, this is not guaranteed, and is dependant on how the individual creditor handles electronic payments.

Rogers doesn’t do that, apparently.  And why does it take 48 hours to make an ELECTRONIC transfer? Clearly, my bank isn’t printing out a check and mailing it like it does with other bill pays—but whatever.

If you have a single example of Rogers Cellular putting the customer first, please share it.

Oh, and Rogers also screwed up another bill before this, in January.  I just didn’t have the energy to point that one out.  But the February bill was fine, so that’s one month since I signed up in September that’s free of Rogers’ snafus.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
