Just shoot me II

Remember the brouhaha with my mortgage company being slimy thieves? Well get a load of this little gem.

We’ve been working with quite possibly the only sane person at CitiGroup: Ellen. She has been our port in the storm; our life preserver in an ocean of The Right Hand Hasn’t a Clue What the Left Hand is Doing. One enormous corporate monster with one employee capable of cogent thought. PTL. She put everything in motion to solve the idiotic mess her company created for us. She told me (after talking me down from the ledge last week) to call yesterday and make sure everything was put in place, and that she was so sorry that we’d been dragged through the mud like this. I texted the Thriller and said, “I think we’re finally out of the woods.”

After my last class left yesterday (and after a pretty good day of rehearsals), I called her. The customer service robot answered and I said, “Hello, may I speak with Ellen in the escrow office please?” Her response:

“Oh, yes. Well, Ellen took a position with another company.”

Back to the drawing board — or to the Funny Farm, where life is beautiful all the time.

Be sure to put your helmet on before you bang your head up against the wall – it will save on brain damage!!!! ReplyRat Fink Reply:October 25th, 2011 at 7:40 amDo you honestly believe it? In fact, Jenn D. was in my classroom at that time, and she probably thinks I’m Cocoa Puffs. I went,… Read more »

Well girly girl stand in line!!! My dad has been gone since May 2009 and I am STILL trying to make sense of the estate. Most everything that has been done by the banks and the lawyer has been touched 3 times by me because they seldom get it right the first time. I have become Mama Eagle Eyes just to keep tabs and make certain the account numbers, the address, the names, the social security numbers are correct. AND…… if I ever here a faceless voice on the phone tell me “This is our policy.” I will join you… Read more »
