Being a grown up sucks

I paid my first-ever cell phone bill at the end of last month. You know, the old fashioned way, by sending a check in the mail. A week later, I got a text message saying my payment was overdue. So, I went right away and paid online. Problem solved.

I just checked my bank balance, and saw that they cashed my original check this morning. So Ibasically paid my bill twice. Luckily it was pay day so it didn’t overdraft my account, but now I have less money than I thought I would.

The good part is, I don’t have to pay my cell phone bill for a while, since the second payment was credited to my account, but it’s still disappointing. I gots to get the hang of this whole paying bills thing.
