    Perhaps “realism” rather than “pessimism”?

    At least, that’s how I justify my borderline-obsessive behavior re: dealing with billing agencies, banks, and bureaucracies of any sort. The reality is that things can get screwed up pretty badly, and being vigilant may save considerable agony and effort in the future on my part.

    So the bank that financed the deal, for some reason, sent me a coupon book for one year less than the actual term. Not a problem: either they’ll send me a new book, or I’ll just pay them online from here on out.

    They have now sent me a new book.
