Red flags and butts
Happy Hump Day all!
The Mr was teleworking so we got to get in our workout early. Twas an abs/cardio combo and then a lower body follow up. We've got about 10 days left on our 2 month Fitness Blender program. My body will be happy for the break. I'll go into that more after we're done.
A week or two ago, the Mr left a message for a fireplace service company that had good reviews but kind of a condescending message on their machine. Something along the lines of "it's fireplace season, so we're busy and will get back to you when we can." We gave it 2 weeks and the Mr followed up, expecting to leave another message but someone answered. He mentioned he'd called after he said it would be 3 weeks before he could get us in. He made the appointment and then started shopping other places because it just had a red flag feel to it. He went through Home Advisor who hooked him up with another place and we've got an appointment for Friday. Hopefully all will go smoothly and we can call and cancel the other place when this guy takes care of business.
I ran to the bank and closed out my business account. After checking my account, I noticed they'd been charging me a monthly service charge for being under a certain amount. (An amount I'd been under before with no charges) Then I also noticed there was a bogus charge on my account for a phishing site. I disputed it and when I called to discuss the service charge, the customer service rep got super condescending and I had to hold back from going Ant-Man, running through the phone line and bitch slapping him through the other end. A few days later, I got a letter basically saying that I should talk to all people authorized to use my card with an undertone of the hack being my fault. I've got news effers, I'M the only person authorized to use my card and the fact you are insinuating it's not you, it's me, means our business relationship ends. So I opened an account at a competing bank with absolutely no hidden charges and transferred everything over there. I feel much better. I don't make much but what I do make should be mine, not the banks. Rat bastards.
Later I heated up the chili and we had that with a little sourdough butt...

What was the last business that gave you big, fat red flags?
