We received a belated Christmas present from Telus today...a $1000 credit to my cell phone account!

Back in the day, something like 3 1/2 years ago, I got this phone and had to pay a $1000 security deposit (the reason why involves a long story but can be summed up by the phrase "my ex is an ass"). I was to receive the security deposit back if I made all of my payments on time for the length of the contract (one year).

Me being me, I messed up and was late on one or two payments and lost the deposit. Or so I thought.

Apparantly Telus has suddenly decided that I'm worthy of the full $1000 and has credited it to my account. Yee-freaking-haw!

I phoned Liam and told him I wanted to buy a new phone, then promptly told him not to let me buy a new phone.

In a strange twist of fate, he took the stance of being the money miser and suggested we put my monthly phone money towards my student loan.

So, I've just now made a payment onto my student loan of the $34.19 plus our leftover money from last month. It feels oddly satisfying to be paying money to the government.

I don't know how to feel about this new, responsible Liam.

MUST... BUY... MAABUS!

Was that your worst computer game purchase ever? Or was there worse...or maybe you never actually worked your way to the bottom of that pile.

Liam J. said...

I played every game I bought -- just that some of them I didn't play more than once.

I believe that WAS my worst purchase ever. However, it was sweet because the fine people at Rip Me Off gave me five dollars more than I paid for it at Virtual Reality.

SCORE!

You mean, you actually managed to even the score just a little against the evil forces of Rip Me Off? that's stupendous! Maybe there was some niche market for Maabus, a group of extremely sad shutins who were all jacked up to play for the 2 minutes you could make it before dying...every time...no matter what you did.

I've always thought that Liam's greatest feat was defeating Rip Me Off.

Baron Von Cliff said...

I would have agreed, until he actually convinced a woman to marry him.

KimProbable said...

And not just any woman!

Baron Von Cliff said...

Well, no...you, specifically. I figured that was pretty much a given.
