Behind every good man is a good woman…and…behind every good woman is a good man.
In the case of Pat and her husband Brad…greatness might apply.
As Pat explains it…
I educated Brad on our bank accounts. I pay all the bills, so he was pretty clueless. As long as [the] bills were paid, he never asked.
I pay [them] electronically so I showed him how it’s set up…how to pay the bills, transfer funds, etc.
We also set up automatic payments wherever we could so we don’t miss a mortgage or insurance payment.
I must say, he was impressed…not with me…but with the bank’s system. [Brad’s] comment after my tutorial…”Wow! I actually get to see the money now!!!”
A few months ago we got a HELOC [Home Equity Line of Credit]. It took a while…[filing] all the required reports [as well as] the credit checks. While signing papers with the loan officer, Brad turned to me and asked “Why is your credit score better than mine?”
What [Brad] doesn’t know is…yeah, I pay the bills on time, but a couple of times his Macy’s bill might have been buried under all the paperwork.”
…kinda funny, right?…pat.
Ok that came out weird???? I loved the dialog.
Not sure what came out weird… And yes, the words were Pat’s, except for the “kinda funny, right?” That was my contribution. If that was weird…sorry. Not Pat’s fault.
I l you’re the bestove it. ……only too funny. Take the path to enlightenment! Pat you’re the best.
Not sure if something got lost in the translation with the first part of your comment. Brendan asks if you’re “smoking something.” ha, ha. you know him. But I agree, Pat’s enlightened, for sure. 🙂
Funnny. 😀 Hugs, Suzanne
A fun-loving couple, as are all my inlaws.
Maybe Hugmamma would like to take a crack a bill paying………
Only if you’d like to see our credit rating go through the floor… 😦
