So today I open up my mail to find a medical bill from 2006...2006!!! It said, "We have tried to contact you for several months. FINAL NOTICE!" I glanced down at the "Amount Due" box to find that we owed $175! I called up the doctor's office and explained that I was unaware of this and asked if we could make payments; the lady said that was fine.
When my husband got home I told him about the bill and he immediately said, "We paid that! I remember going in and paying that bill." I was kind, but I really didn't believe him, I mean, how could he remember a particular bill from more than two years ago? However, I told him I would look up our old bank statements.
Sure enough, he was right, we had paid the bill! I could hardly believe it. I called up the doc's office right away and explained that we had indeed paid, the date we paid, and the proof to back it up. She said, "Okay, I'll take care of that." Just like that.
Now, if my husband weren't around (for some random reason) and I received this bill I would have paid it; I would never have even looked into it.
So, why does my husband rock?
He has the best stinkin' memory in the world! (Just don't tell him that if we're ever in a fight or betting on something.) Ah, I love that man!
