Short fuse and Absa
I do have a lot of patience. Really.
However, not with technology and not with banks. (also not bad drivers – regtig heng is dit so moeilik om jou padreëls te ken)
Anyway, back to Absa…and in a way technology.
I needed to pay some creditors at the end of the month and all of a sudden I can’t. Just like that. Stupid message that just says “Not identified, not verified”
WTF. How about some small message that makes sense!
After many many many many phone calls (where I was put through to roadside assistance, life insurance and some place where people speak to soft to hear if they are from earth) apparently there is a FICA hold on our account. They need FICA docs.
However, since there was not change in account details, new products there is no need for it. I don’t mind though. I work in the financial sector. I get it. LET ME KNOW THOUGH. I cannot all of a sudden not be able to pay people!!!
Another five days before I can use my account apparently.
I do not have the patience for this nonsense. ABSA …. it’s not proper to say bad things on social media but ooohhhh I so badly want to.
