Ok, so I have complained probably a bazzillion times on here about how I have yet received a phone call from my guy. Well today his prison counselor called me to ask me if I would accept collect calls from him. I said YES, of course, I've been waiting. Then she goes on to give me this 800 phone # to set up an account so he can call me. She said he should be able to call me by next week sometime like maybe Wednesday or Thursday as long as I set this account up. So I was SUPER excited! To only be let down. I called to set it up, with through the steps, remind you I am NOT talking to an actual person, it is all automated. I hate that! I'd rather have a human-being ANY day over a computer. At least then I can ask questions. Anyway, I get to the point where they ask for how I will be paying for it. I didn't know I had to pay before hand. I figured I would be billed on my phone bill so I could pay it when it comes in. I just paid my rent today and I was late, so with added late fees I only have about $80 to my name for the next 2 weeks! With the kids going back to school on this coming Monday I will need this cash. To set up the account I have to put a minimum of $50 on it. So unfortunately I did not finish setting it up. I hung up, & sighed. I didn't cry! I wanted to! But I didn't. We both feel like we have been waiting forever to get phone calls. So I was just wondering if that is how it is everywhere? Cash is tight, & I do not know when I will be able to put it on the phone account. I want to! But I just can't. I am already struggling as it is. So I am going to have to write that horrible letter to him explaining that I can not afford to set up a phone account just yet, and I won't be able to visit until most likely November. I am sad about it. But I know I will get through. I wish prison phone calls were free. I mean one call a month, or something would be nice. But also NEVER gonna happen! Thanks for letting me vent. I just dread telling him the bad news after we have waited for so long. I am sure he will understand.
