One day, I will call our insurance provider, ask my question and get a clear and satisfactory answer. I’m sure this will happen one day.
That day wasn’t today. Today, I got an automated system which directed me to a representative, and when I pressed the appropriate button the system cut me off. Five times.
Why did I keep calling back? Isn’t the definition of stupid doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? I kept calling because somewhere deep inside me, I believe that one day my insurance provider will give me what I need.
As I said, today wasn’t that day.
Nor was it the last time I called them. Or the time before. Or the time before.
But one day. Please, please let that day come before I go.
They say if you start to believe something, it is more likely to come true. Or maybe they don’t say that. I could’ve made that up. It doesn’t really matter.
What matters is that I am going to fake my faith in them until they are worthy of my faith.
Can you remind me again of the definition of stupid?
