    Ever since my payment section populated with estimated amounts a week or so ago, the total amount due hasn't been correct. I'm still seeing the "old" "Complete the steps below to take delivery" page.

    The number shown is $9500 lower than it should be ($65,333 vs $74833):

    Has anyone else seen this sort of thing?

    Might be good to have a 5 minute delivery in this case. Drop the check off and get out!

    They must be using common core math.

    Accounting Math.

    Top accounting firm was hiring.
    Same question was asked, "What's 1 + 1 = to?"
    First interviewee, "2."
    "Thank you. We will give you a call."
    Second interviewee, "1 + 1 = 11."
    "Thank you. We will give you a call."
    Third interviewee, "What do you want it to be?"
    "You are hired!"

    Weird. You’d think it was some version of an excel spreadsheet.

    I watched this when it first came out and made the decision to never be a verizon customer. I despise all large TelComs and view them as an unfortunately necessary evil, but if I have to do business with one I'll at least pick one that can do simple math.

    That's the best theory so far.
