I called to enquire what my membership dues should be, without including payment for the Political Action Committee.
"Oh," I said, "the fees went up by about $54 this year." Realtor help desk person replied, "No, fees were exactly the same as last year." I objected, "Hey, I did the math, and it's $54 higher!"
"Your payment might appear higher this year because..." she spun thus: "your discount went down."
I need to go back to the dentist.
