In our house Tammy runs the finances, which is fitting since she works in the financial industry, and, for the most part, she’s on top of everything.
But then there are times when she forgets that she’s already paid a bill and ends up sending in two payments. We once had a credit of over $100 on an Old Navy card due to her paying the bill more than once.
So, I didn’t really think too much about it when she told me she had a credit on one of her cards, until…
Tammy: Well, I’ve got a credit on my Ann Taylor card. (hinting at her needing to go shopping)
Me: How much credit?
Tammy: Fumble, mumble, rabbles and muffler, bumble cents.
Me: How much?
Tammy: Fumble, mumble, rabble and 72 cents.
Me: What was the first part?
Tammy: (hanging her head and talking under her breath) Four dollars and 72 cents.
We also have a $25 credit on our gas bill.
