Conversation with Wells Fargo
Me: I transferred money to my son and he hasn’t received it yet
Them: Since you transferred it after 8pm Pacific time it won’t credit until today’s postings
Me: I’ve transferred money before, at all hours of the day, and he’s gotten it instantaneously
Them: Well, that shouldn’t have happened
Me: How can we make it happen?
Them: I’ll have to put you on hold
Them: I’m going to transfer you to our transfer department. (Yes, they really said that). They should be able to recall the transaction, then you can send it again
Me: Why will that make it transfer faster?
Them: Because it’s before 8pm Pacific time
Yes, this conversation really happened. And, the stupid part of the whole thing is, it worked.
