Please bear with me while I vent for a moment
As I've mentioned before, my husband works for a daycare center that is owned by a family member. His boss calls him on his cell phone and micro-manages every moment of the day. It's incredibly frustrating for all involved, including me who has to hear about every night. So a couple months ago, our cell phone bill spiked by something like $80. So I took a closer look at our bill and realized that these daily conversations at work had eaten up about 7000 minutes worth of roll-over time over about 5 months (we have Cingular/AT&T) and we were now getting billed at $.40 per minute for overages. I showed it to my husband who felt we couldn't make the company pay for it, and said from now on, he just won't use his cell phone for work. Well, after a couple days, his boss got angry at him for not answering the phone, even after DH explained why he wasn't going to be using it any more and said that he'll just pay for the overage charges in our cell phone bill. Now, I saw a disaster brewing here, because I knew that he did not have any concept of just how much money that was going to come to. So he asked for a record of past calls, so he could reimburse us and suggested that we move our plan up to the next level and he'll pay the extra from here on out. To start with, the next level still doesn't have enough minutes to cover the time. But, I converted our phone bills to excel files, sorted out our personal calls and sent him the record of DH's business calls. Well, Boss-man says he wants to see all the calls, so DH sends him the PDFs of our phone bills, and now he is going through them line by line trying to prove that all those costs couldn't possibly be his phone calls and criticizing DH for his, and my phone use. He says he'll give us a "proposal" when he's done. In the mean time, he keeps making "jokes" about just applying uncollected client fees against our cell phone bill and then they'll be even. AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH
HH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just want to go over there myself and kick him in the rear and what the heck his problem is?
But, DH says that will just make matters worse, so I just sit at home and stew.
On a more positive note, I'm happy to here that radmom is improving. Thanks for listening/looking
