Crying wolf

I hate when banks, credit card companies, etc. mark envelopes IMPORTANT when really they are no such thing. I'm thinking, "Oh, shit, they didn't get my payment," and they're thinking, "How can we get her to spend more money?" Just to be clear: No money=important. Raising interest rates 300%=important. Offering me a new loan=not important.

I ripped open the notice I received today because I had a momentary flare of panic that this time, it would actually be important. It, of course, was not. But I've felt that flare of panic all day, like my life is at a crossroad, like something is going to change, like something is going to happen. Something important.
