A credit card statement for $7,000! WTH?! We only have that card as a backup, and it has a zero balance! I called the company, only to find out I had opened Mr. Neighbor's mail. AW, CRAP!
So I go over to Mr. Neighbor's house (he's out washing the car with his daughter), and I sheepishly hand him the opened piece of mail. I tried explaining the situation to him, but I was stumbling over my words. I said something like this:
"I was just opening my mail because we have a credit card by the same company. And when I saw the balance I freaked out because to my knowledge, we never used it." [GULP--insert foot!] you should have seen his eyes pop out of his head when I said that! So I try to fix it with, "I called the credit card company only to find out I had opened someone else's mail...I am so sorry." [GULP--again! Did I really just admit to being so stupid? Umm...yep!]
mental note: run away and never go back.p.s. guess who caught me a few days later walking the dog at 10 am in my terry cloth bathrobe?
