So I get airline miles on my credit card. I have quite a few saved up. A few years ago, I tried to get them to send me one with Jerry’s name on it, but apparently that was too much trouble because it never showed up (and there was no unusual activity on my account, either).
Well, I got a new card in the mail a few weeks ago, so I had to call to activate it anyway. So I called and activated it and then asked to speak to a service rep, and I got a really nice guy on the phone. Strong accent. Whatever. Nice guy. I told him that I wanted a card for my husband, and that this wasn’t the first time I’ve asked for one.
We went through the whole thing, and he asked for the name. I gave Jer’s full name. “Do you want for the Junior to be included?” Um, yes. Because if you don’t include it, the card would be in his father’s name, not his. “Oh, yes. Of course, of course.”
I was told that the card would be here in 7-10 days. No problem. I thanked him for his kindness and hung up.
The card arrived this weekend.
The “Jr.” is there. But the dude added an “s” to the end of our last name on the card. So I guess I shall be calling again… *sigh*
Maybe the third time will be the charm.
Good grief. It’s really not worth the effort sometimes.
