I'm a money chaser

Seems like the past few months, all I've been doing is chasing money. In February we got a recall notice and we're still waiting to be reimbursed for that money. It's $700 and I want it now. It was supposed to be 6-8 weeks, so at the 8 week mark I called. They're still "looking into it". She made a note in my file that I'd called. I will call again next week, and then probably daily until I get satisfaction. At the beginning of April we had a situation with our car hitting an uncovered sewer in New Jersey. We are supposed to be getting reimbursed $250 for that debacle. Still waiting. Probably a bit too early to start harrassing the State of New Jersey. At work, I am supposed to get a "commission" for booking hotels and cars. According to the paper accounting sent me, there should be 3 cars I'm getting paid for this quarter. Those 3 cars were not on the list they sent me regarding my commissions. It's been hanging in limbo for a while now. It's probably just a few bucks......but it's my few bucks and you know........it's the principle of the thing. And finally, when we went to Montreal the hotel "held" some money on our credit card and that is still "pending'. Again....only $65 but it's my $65. I called the credit card company yesterday and they said it could be held for 30 days!! Huh? I already got the statement from the hotel. There's no reason for them to hold my money. We didn't trash the room or steal the towels. I tried to call the hotel yesterday for them to release it but their accounting office was closed. I'll have to call on Monday. Sigh............

It's all about the float, honey! Not that anyone can make $ on $ anymore but still that's why they hold it. I don't see why the hotel should have to hold your money that long either. It's outrageous. I think I would tell them I would not recommend their hotel due to that policy.

Argghh...go get 'em, girl...I know exactly what you mean though. It may not be much money, but it is YOUR money, gosh darn it!
