A Discouraging Day Online

I  feel this has been a wasted day. At least I can say I got two loads of laundry done and my bed changed, but it seems the online gremlins have been very busy thwarting my efforts to get any work done online.

It started when my husband wanted me to pay the CareCredit Card bill online. I didn't remember having an online account with that particular bank, so I tried to register. Then I learned I did have an account, but I couldn't find my login information. They said I could get my username if I went through the steps of filling out their form with my personal information, account number, and so on. So I did. 

They sent an email to confirm the email address and then I got to go through filling out the form again to update my password. Then they wanted to know the answer to a security question I couldn't remember the answer to. Fortunately, I knew the answer to the second one. Then I had to fill out the form again. 

When I got the confirmation email to reset my password, I had to use all the information to log in again, but I couldn't find any link to actually pay my bill. It was then I learned that bank won't let me use Chrome and I had to open IE, which I hate. Then we went through the whole routine of filling out the infamous form a couple of more times. By this time I was tearing my hair out almost .

Below is the login form I had to fill out at least ten times today.

I finally had to call support to complete my business and had to fill out the form a couple more times before I finished. I have never found a company that made it so hard to pay a bill -- except maybe Verizon. Paying that bill took me about 45 minutes, whereas I could have paid any other credit card bill in five minutes. 

That just got the day started wrong, and I was never able to get back in the groove. I watched some training videos, got the laundry done, changed some colors on one website, and edited a post on another. Most of what I did was tweak things -- no real writing today. 

There was one good thing. I did see some new sales on both Amazon and Zazzle. I  needed that bit of encouragement. 

How has your day been?
