Damn you, Sallie Mae!

I've always thought Sallie Mae was basically a bunch of crooks and scam artists, with shady business practices and trying to repay my student loan to them has convinced me that this is seriously the case. It's like they WANT you to fuck up.

I moved in July and one of the first things I did was call Sallie Mae and change my address. I had just graduated and I knew I had time until I started repaying my loan, but I didn't want any important info to get lost in the moving shuffle. So I called, gave them my new address and they said everything would go there.

Wrong. In August, I recieved an important letter, that was a week late, because they had used my OLD address. Concerned, I called them again and spoke to a very angry sounding woman who told me the address thing was MY fault, not an error at Sallie Mae. I gave her the address again and she promised she changed it.
