As if it weren’t enough that I had to buy a piece of software for $6000, I have to pay a yearly maintenance fee or else the software becomes disabled. Last year I remember them telling me it was going to be around $1000. I got my first notice that I have to pay this fee, and guess what. It went up. To $1400.
I think it’s hilarious that in their “Dear Loyal OfficeMate Client” letter (I’m only loyal because the program locks and holds my records hostage if I don’t pay) they say that the “invoice reflects a slight increase over last year’s fee.”
SLIGHT! So they’re laughing all the way to the bank while I’m already at the bank…on my hands and knees…asking for a bigger line of credit.
