Choking on a $1.83 Credit Card Bill

Yes its 183 pennies.

Today I have to make a money order for $1.83 today for a credit card bill.

I usually pay my credit card bills in money order denominations of $20, $40, $60 and last month I slightly underpaid one of the cards by one dollar and eighty three cents. I usually over pay the credit card bills so to pay them off as quickly as possible.

I called the credit card company. They said I owe them $1.83 and I can skip the payment if I choose to. They also reminded me that according to the terms of service they will tack on a $29.00 late fee and jack up my interest rate from 11% to 24%. I ask them if they can waive it because the amount owed is so small. They were like 'sorry' that when I signed for the credit card, I agreed to their terms of service.

That's how bad they are and yeah I'm choking on a $1.83 credit card bill.

I'm sure many of you have oddities with credit card companies.



  1. Too bad for you. You can afford to pay this. Quit whining.

  2. It seems that you have bad or fair credit history.

  3. Credit messed up by 4 yrs of acrimonious divorce.

  4. quit drinking beers and pay DAT bill !!!

  5. Not with the statin I'm taking, I cant touch alcohol.
