I am quite sick of being a secondary account holder. It's useless. Idiotic banks won't even allow me to make a payment over the phone to a "joint credit card" between myself and my husband. Don't they want their money? Idiots.
I can't get any information, I can't change anything. Well, I actually do understand that part, but I thought banks would be all about money, so no matter who is paying, it should be all good. Whatev. I'm not in the mood.
Tonight I just tried to access our tax information for our home that we own (not really own, but we are making payments on) that we aren't living in. Dandy. I was trying to access this information because I have an appointment tomorrow with an accountant to get our taxes done. And the phone assistant tells me that since I am not the primary account holder, and the lowly second joint person on the loan, that I am not eligible to access that information. It's like top secret. Oh? Really?
What, pray tell, kind of danger or harm can I cause by knowing that we spent $11,000 dollars in interest last year? Anyone? I can't change anything vital. I can't suck all the funds out and pay them directly to myself and run for the hills. I just want the document.
I hate rules. The stupid ones especially. Right now I'm waiting for my husband to set up his online identity, because he has never had one. He has never paid a bill online. And once we do this, I can access the stupid tax information. After that, he will never need this information anymore. How stupid. But that's just me.
