He duly set the account up and inadvertantly/carelessly (depending on who you listen to) transposed 2 digits on the account number. We picked it up before the next payment was due just because I couldn't fathom why our mortgage payment hadn't been taken from our bank account and we found the error. Still showed up as a late payment.......and stayed there on record despite my husbands protestations that it was a mistake and *should've been obvious* (!!?!)

Well, our credit reports are, after all, record of our payment histories. They are not records of our willingness, of our ability, or of our typing skill.
