Better than No-Spend Days

August 21, 2009

What’s better than not spending?

Making up for past stupid spending!

I pled my rheumatically, unemployed case with the hotel, and the woman I spoke with was kind enough to cut me some slack. Some $40 slack! I was polite, acknowledged that the ball had been dropped on my end entirely, but asked for a bit of consideration due to extenuating circumstances, and she obliged.

  1. I would have never thought to ask! Just goes to show it doesn’t hurt to put it out there.

  2. I would have figured asking wouldn’t do anything and talked myself out of calling — good work!

    If you don’t ask…you don’t receive. Good job, that takes the sting out of it a lil bit, yeah?

    Cents in the City: Absolutely. I was debating with myself about whether or not I should, but why not?

    stackingpennies: I felt like it was a negotiating practice run. Weird and awkward, but silences DO work.

    Sense: Oh it most certainly does, the credit has been applied to my card!

    Awesome, I’m glad you called. It never hurts to ask, at worst they’ll say no. It helps to explain you are unemployed, most people are more sympathetic then.
