Humor of the Day
Do you ever wonder about Customer Service Agents that can’t think outside the box?
Aunt Isabel died in July. Citibank billed her for August and September’s monthly service charge, plus late fees and interest. Her -0- (zero) balance is now $60.00.
So, I placed a call to Citibank regarding the billing. Me: “I’m calling to tell you she died in July.”
Citibank: “The account was never closed, so the charges will still apply.”
Me: “Maybe you should turn it over to collections.”
Citibank: “Since the account is 2 months past due, it already has been sent to collections.”
Me: “So, what do they do when they find out she’s dead?”
Citibank: “Either report her to the fraud division, or the credit bureau, or both!”
Me: “Do you think God will be mad at her?”
Citibank: “Excuse me?”
Me: “What part of ‘she died’ is giving you trouble?”
Citibank: “Ma’am, you’ll have to speak to my supervisor!” (Supervisor gets on the phone…)
Me: “I’m calling to let you know she died in July.”
Citibank: “The account was never closed, so the charges still apply.”
Me: “You mean you want to collect from her estate?”
Citibank: (Stammering). . . “Are you her lawyer?”
Me: “Nope, just her great niece”. (Lawyer information given to the supervisor)
Citibank: “Could you fax us a Certificate of Death?”
Me: “Sure!” (After I fax the Certificate of Death…)
Citibank: “Our system isn’t set up for death.”
Citibank: “I don’t know what more I can do to help.”
Me: “Well, I guess you can just keep billing her. I don’t really think she’ll care.”
Citibank: “You understand the late fees and charges still apply?”
Me: “Okaaaay. Would you like her new billing address?”
Me: “Odessa Memorial Cemetery, Highway 129, Plot Number 34.”
Citibank: “Uhhh, — ma’am, that’s a cemetery!”
Me: “Ummm, well, yes it is. What do you do with dead people on your planet?”
