Remember this? When I had to move out of my first NY apartment because my massage table was stolen, and I rented a van and a friend to move to the new place where the ceiling is now caving in?
Remember how I had to pay my pal with an American Express check because my NBC paychecks were not coming through week after week?
Remember how AmEx lowered my limit to $2K without telling me first even though I had never had a late payment in over 15 years, so that the check was declined because it would've been $24 whole dollars over?
Well, I simply vented here and haven't used the card since, because I pick my battles and my battles at the time were bigger than the declined check.
The other night, I received an apology from American Express, and a check for $160. Apologies are so much better when they involve money. I don't know if there was some sort of class action suit pending, or what, but American Express and I are now on speaking terms again.
I thought you should know.
I also thought you should know that sometimes really good, unexpected things can happen.
