I’m hoping one of you out there can call my mortage company and talk some sense into them. I called them this morning but got nowhere.
So you have the background, here is the transcript of the phone call. Bold is them, plain text is me.
Hello, ABC Mortgage.
Good Morning. Hope. Change.
Um… may I help you?
Yes, I’d like to close out my mortgage please.
OK, May I have your account number?
OK I have your account right here… How would you be paying off the balance?
What do you mean ‘paying of the balance?’
Sir, you have a balance of $123,456.78
There must be some mistake. Hope. Change.
There is no mistake sir, if you want to close out your mortgage you need to pay off the balance of $123,456.78.
But I voted or Obama and he won.
um… uh… well… sir I understand that but you still owe the balance of your mortgage.
I’m not sure what that means.
It means hope, change, we voted for hope and change. Now I’d like to close out my mortgage.
Sir… maybe you don’t understand it doesn’t work that way.
But I voted for Obama, don’t you understand?
I understand that sir, but when you bought your house you signed a contract saying you would pay off the money we lent you. You can’t close out your mortgage until the balance is paid.
I’m sorry sir.
What state are you in?
What state am I calling, what state is your company in?
We’re in South Carolina sir.
Is that a Red State or a Blue State?
That’s a Red State sir.
Oh, That explains it… YOU NAZI.
You can see they problem. They don’t understand what Hope and Change means. It does mean something… right?
