Sunday morning, 10:35 a.m.

"Hi, um, I want to buy a car, and am having credit problems. It looks like one of the issues is that I owe Dr. Grumpy $68.54 from an unpaid bill in 2004. Anyway, I really need this car, like, before Monday, so can I pay this today to get you to take it off my record? If someone can please call me back, I'll give you a credit card number right now, and we can settle this."

hahaha... apparently, you and Experian, TU, and Equi are tied at the hip.... and they say docs don't have connections!

Is this the same guy who needs a doctor's note about police light-inducing seizures, except now he's forgone his court appearance and is now skipping town?

6 years and counting. You should charge late fees and interest, you can call it the stupidity fine.

Haha, oh people who don't know how the system works.

Oh, god, this is pretty much my JOB. People call, wondering why there's a credit listing, and then get angry when my see that my company is the one that's making the listing.

Best part is when they get angry after I suggest they, y'know, PAY THEIR BILL.

People are stupid.

"But you should know that it's not actually my name on the card. It's my ex-girlfriend's. But that bitch totally owes me for that time she drank that bottle of Malibu I was saving for my birthday and then puked all over my roommate's sofa, so it's okay, and you can just tell her that if she complains."

"Plus, if you'd given me those pills to make me smart like I asked you for, then right now I'd probably be like a computer web billionaire or president of the world or something, so really you owe me."

Yeah, I'm surprised that people expect to pay back their debts. My roommate is very lax in paying back his student loans.

"The thing is, I've got the money to pay you because I already short-sold the car, but the buyer is coming by my place to pick it up on Monday, so I really really need to get it by then. Otherwise, I may wind up with more head injuries like the ones I had back in '04."

Doctor bills don't really count. You don't have to pay them. I mean, it's not like doctors really need to make a living. They do this entirely out of the goodness of their hearts, right?

@Sashimi--awesome.

You do take a portable visa machine home with you right? For those times when people want to tip you for answering a page?

:)

Nice to be back on the interweb again and back to reading your blog.

Dude, do you take PayPal?

Bulrush said...

Doesn't a change in his credit rating take, like 60 days or something?

Are you REALLY going to take a (probably fake) credit card from this guy?
