Hi. This is my first post ever on this site. My 4 year old daughter had her second eye surgery on Monday. She is at home with me this week recovering. This morning i get a call from a collection company for a bill from her first surgery last year. The guy on the phone was such an asshole!!!!! In fact I asked him why he was being so mean, his reply was he was just trying to be "professional". I have been making payments on the balance, it's not like I wasn't trying to pay it. So I put the remaining balance on a credit card that i was trying to pay down. After I hung up with him, I burst into tears. Why don't people have compassion??? Why does it feel like we can naver get ahead? Does anyone else feel like this ever????

Sometimes, you'll be okay though. You are trying and that is all that matters. there are times when you run into the rudest customer service people or collection people. Try not to let it get you down

Bill collectors are always rude, As long as you were making payments they shouldn't have been harassing you. Hugs.

Some people/companies care about nothing but getting their money.  I'm sorry he was so rude to you.  (((hug)))

How is your daughter doing?

I'm sorry you had to deal with that today :(. Unfortunately bill collectors only care about getting their money and not what the people who owe the bills are going through. I hope your daughter is recovering well!

I know it's tough, but that guy was probably just doing his job. Hang in there, Momma!

Thank you everyone for your kind words!!! my day got better after some yoga and grocery shopping. My daughter, Camille, is doing well. She was a preemie and they think that is what  caused her vision problems.  Last year she had to have a full lens replacement because she had a cataract that would have eventually made her blind. This surgery was to remove the scar tissue that she developed. Thank you again to everyone!! I am so glad I stumbled upon this site today!

You're welcome! I'm glad your day got better and I am so glad that you found us too! :)

So hopefully this will be the last eye surgery she needs to have?
