Just a little rant...

I checked our online statement today. We had recently opened a BOA Visa account for EMERGENCIES only (until the efund is fully funded). My wife, however, decided to make a couple of charges. Of course, without my knowledge because she knew I'd go through the roof. Anyway, she got the bill and sent it off without me knowing. Well, guess what? She paid the entire bill, but it was due Aug 29 and they received the payment Aug 30. ONE DAY LATE and they charged the account a $29 late fee.

I know I shouldn't be irritated with my wife so much. I AM irritated with BOA for a one day charge. I will call them today and see if they'll waive it. It's a new account and I can threaten to close it immediately. Any thoughts on this?
