it turns out the financial issue with my school is worse than I thought. Manageable, probably, but I am every possible kind of pissed off right now.
I don't understand why lending companies always have the worst web design on the internet.
oh, no, wait. I do. It's because they know they can force people to suffer through their shitty layouts no matter how fucking intolerable they are, so they don't have to actually pay web designers to build their site, they just have some management dick do it using a copy of HTML for Assholes and a fucking fax machine.
I would not be the slightest bit surprised to discover that loan and payment plan sites make their web design fucking awful on purpose, so people get too fed up to make careful financial decisions. I know I didn't double check my balance one more time before hitting OK, because I didn't want the fucking site to crash AGAIN.
