I’m Dying Here . . . January 9, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke, People.
In March and April, the bank added late fees and interest to the charge. The balance, which had been $0.00 when she died, now approached $60.00.
A family member placed a call to the bank. “Hi. I’m calling to let you know my aunt died in January.”
After some back and forth, the bank’s representative said, “I’m sorry, but the account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.”
The nephew chuckled,”Maybe you should turn it over to collections.”
Missing the humor, the bank rep said, “Since it is two months past due, it already has been.”
“Either report her account to the fraud division or report her to the credit bureau. Maybe both!”
“Do you think God will be mad at her?”
“Did you get what I was telling you – the part about her being dead?”
“Sir, you’ll have to speak to my supervisor.”
Supervisor gets on the phone.
The nephew says, “I’m calling to tell you, the account holder died back in January with a $0 balance.”
“The account was never closed and late fees and charges still apply.”
“(Stammer) Are you her lawyer?”
“No, I’m her nephew.”
“Could you fax us a certificate of death?”
“Sure. What’s your fax #?”
After the bank gets the fax: “Our system just isn’t setup for death. I don’t know what more I can do to help.”
“Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. She won’t care.”
“Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.”
“No doubt. Would you like her new billing address?”
“Sure. That might help.”
“Sir, that’s a cemetery!”
“Yup. What do you do with dead people on your planet??”
Aah . . . that’s better!
