One Step Forward

Things finally progressed a little today, right after I whinged about them being stagnant.

For starters, I called my accountant in the morning and inquired (in a very diplomatic way, might I add) about why I was overcharged.

(Yes, for once, yours truly actually summoned enough courage to thicken her facial skin and speak up for herself.)

The accountant paused for a very brief second before quickly responding and proceeded to explain that it was most likely due to a discount code that he must have forgotten to key in when he printed out my invoice. He immediately issued a new invoice on the spot, and it's on its way to me as we speak.

I didn't bother to analyse whether he was being truthful or it was just an excuse to cover up his dirty antics, I'm just glad that I went through with the phone call and stood up for myself.

*Self pats on the back*

I had an interview in the afternoon, which was scheduled at the very last minute. It turned out to be a complete waste of time as the position wasn't what I had expected it to be, so I'll most likely turn it down (yes, again) if I do receive a job offer.

But I did so badly at the interview that I might not even have to struggle with saying "no" afterall. Haha.

Last but not least, yours truly is actually blogging via her own internet connection tonight.

Yeap, after spending many hours on the phone harassing my personal computer geek, aka Bee, my broadband is finally working! And I finally feel connected to the rest of the world. *Grins*

Turned out, the problem wasn't with the connection, but a bad modem. *Rolls eyes*

Oh well, at least some things got done today huh? :)
