Vanguard is trying to make me crazy

Originally uploaded by CCBImages

I have a savings account set up especially for my 2009 Roth IRA contributions. Last week I attached that account to my Roth thinking that I'd have Vanguard withdraw from it monthly. Easy peasy right? Wrong. WRONG! I was the Vanguard site tonight trying to set this up to start in February since I already made my January contribution. Why in the deep fried hell does it want to start in December 2008? After spending 30 minutes going round and round with this I gave up. I'll just call them on Monday and figure what what to do.

Automating things is supposed to make your life easy, and I believe it. However no one told me that setting up said automation would be a pain in my beige ass.
