The most interesting part of the visit, however, was my dad's assistance with the
It's incredible really, and sadly not a trait I inherited. I'm more of the, "What's that? You want to rip me off and sell me that broken item for much more than it's really worth? Ok, but can't I pay you a little more for it?" Really. I'm bad at it. If you'll recall, the only reason I am paying less than the listed price for my apartment is because Becky was there when I applied. Anyway, when I opened the bill I panicked. I called Becky and Justin who were super helpful and supportive and told me to call Verizon right away. Then I happened to talk to my dad to give him directions to my apartment and mentioned it to him. He offered to help and given his history, how could I refuse? He actually sat on the phone for close to 2 hours, and they have now dropped all of those charges and are billing me less per month for my service. And I'm related to him - by birth! I also have to point out that the rest of my family was so gracious, and didn't complain about going to dinner far after the time we had planned. Kate made a few noises when she realized Wahoo's was going to close (which is reasonable considering how amazing their fish tacos are!), but they were just as gracious about eating late as they were about sitting on the floor to eat dessert. Oh family, aren't they just wonderful?
