Letters on a Tuesday

Dear Department Stores (Target, Walmart, Staples, etc),

Just because it is mid-July does not mean it is time to pull out the school supplies. I love school supplies and trust me I get very excited when they do come out. But it's July 9th. Not even the middle of the month. I don't care what kind of special deals you have--save it. There should be a rule; no school supplies until August 1st. As a teacher I would like to enjoy my summer a little longer than a month without thinking about what I need for the next school year.

Dear Experian,

We signed up with you to get our credit scores and check on my student loans. After a month, I cancelled my subscription however you told me that I had until the end of July to check my score. I've been on there once since then however you've charged me $19.99 three times since we spoke. After I called you again you told me that I was charged when I clicked "okay". Not possible. I'm sucking it up and paying (mainly because I couldn't understand what you were saying in the other country you are located in) but you will never have my business again.

Dear Student Loans,

Nothing has changed with us in the past two years, therefore I still despise you.

Dear Weather,

I appreciate the daily rain showers, I really do. It reminds me of Florida and makes me feel less guilty about napping. However, your humidity is out of control. I hope that you do not lie and the weathermen are correct when they are telling us that it will be in the low 80s will low humidity this weekend. That would be fabulous!

Dear House,

You didn't sell. I'm kind of disappointed but I know it's for a reason. Please be good to us for the next several months until we put you up for sale again. Then come February or March I want you to be amazing and sell very quickly. For now, if you could just expand a little, we'd appreciate it!

Dear J,

Thank you for dealing with my "nesting mode". I know I'm crazy and have to have things done now and everything perfect but I really cannot help it. I hope the articles about nesting I sent you help you understand. I'm definitely not meaning you are the problem--the mess is the problem (and 2 things out on the counter = mess for me right now). Thank you for working so hard for us lately!


  1. I will always despise student loans. They are the worst thing in the world.

  2. I love the experian one. We get charged by them too! Its annoying but whats even MORE annoying is trying to talk to someone in another country. Being pregnant = I hang up on them most of the time!

  3. I turned Experian into the BBB. They charged me 3 times since I cancelled and I was not having that. They're ridiculous and scammers.

  4. I was so sad when I walked into walmart on Friday and they were pulling out the school supplies. I am pretty sure I just cleaned up my classroom a few weeks ago. LET ME HAVE MY SUMMER!

  5. Stop paying them! I use Credit Karma and it's FREE and they give you your score!
