I started today at 2 PM by calling BCBS to ask them a VERY SIMPLE question.
"Did they receive my application for supplemental insurance?"
It is now 3:37 PM, and I JUST hung up from talking to the FIFTH person who I had to tell my name, my address, my phone, my email and my birth date to. Over an hour and a half!!! I just wanted them to add a prescription plan on to my insurance policy because my husband said I should have done that. I had to listen to Anthony somebody who spoke poor English READ the ENTIRE contract to me over the phone. I had to answer "Yes" every time he read something to me.
He would say, "Did you understand that?"
I would say, "No!"
He would say, "You need to say "Yes"!"
So I would say "Yes"!"
Over and over and over, he kept asking me questions. I went downstairs. I made a snack. I let the dogs outside because they had to come inside until the exterminator's bug spray dried on the grass. I ate my snack. I turned on my laptop. I checked my email. All the while, Anthony kept "axing" me questions.
I do not know HOW an unhealthy or hard-of-hearing person would ever get through all of it.
I MAY or MAY NOT have a drug plan. Anthony said if I didn't answer those questions right, I could get hauled off to prison -- or something just as sinister. I have to pay some sort of penalty if I don't get a drug plan. I don't take any prescription drugs at all and neither does Jerry. WHAT A HASSLE!
I made another little video this morning to show you my latest project and to get your opinion on something. Here it is: (WARNING: 25 seconds of NOTHING at the beginning. I have NO IDEA why!)
Did you notice the big red circle on my shoulder? Something ate my arm last night while I was swinging. I'm so glad the exterminator came today.
OH! If you are interested, here is the link to Peggy's wonderful Culotte video:
(The beginning may be blank for a bit, and then she starts with questions. Just move the slider over a bit 'til you see her start showing the culottes.)
I love Peggy, but I don't care much for her patterns. I have so many fitting issues with them, and the directions have errors that she doesn't fix even if she knows about them.
I do NOT like the blouse she has on AT ALL! Do you? Looks like somebody's skirt blew off and flew across a parking lot and wrapped itself around half her body. Weird!
Be back soon.
