HATE student loans

My student loan payment was just debited from my account for, get this, THREE TIMES the amount that I normally pay. When I called them to find out why, all they could say was that it was a mistake, but they couldn't fix it.


So my normally $400 payment turned into a $1200 payment. :(


I am so mad right now I could explode.

I swear I must have smoke coming out of my ears. I just called them back and cancelled the automatic withdrawls. And the lady had the nerve to ask me why. So I told her. And I wasn't very nice about it. Poor lady. She took the wrong call.  :(

OK, so apparently I am not done venting.


I just don't understand it. How can they debit the correct amount for well over a year now and then just f up one month? That's a pretty BIG mistake if you ask me. It would be one thing if I actually had the extra money...it would be great to not pay for 2 months or to apply that extra money toward the principle, but we are still recovering from the wedding and we NEED that money in our account.


I need to punch something. Or something. Or maybe I just need a drink. Or a long run.

LMAO I totally get ya. honestly I would call your bank, once they see that its the same amount mutliple times they would just reverse it.  That has happened to me at restaurants and stuff and bank of america credited when I called the fraud department

Ugh. It's not the same amount multiple times--it's a huge amount once. I called the bank and they said there is nothing they can do since I authorized Direct Loans to debit my account. The bank is on my sh!t list today too....

College Tuition button


(The buttons crack me up, but I don't recommend visiting Beanforest if you're easily offended.)


Also, this is one reason why automatic debit is bad.  Switch back to writing checks if you can possibly stand to do so. :(
