Round Up

First off-I hate banks. Parasitic institutions that take your money and then place all of these contingencies on it as to when and how much you can withdraw and on and on. That being said whatever happened to the friendly bank where you could go up to the juvenile cashier and ask for some change, without being asked if you have an account at that bank.

I knew I was going to need quarters for parking meters so I thought I could walk into "any" bank and ask for a roll of quarters-$5.00 or $10.00 worth. You would have thought I asked for a kidney. I kept asking the cashier/clerk why do I have to have an account with your bank for an even exchange of currency. On and on and one we went until finally her manager came over and asked, "Mam, is there a problem."

By that time I was boiling so I told him, "Your bank sucks and stop calling women Mam-we don't like it!!!" and stormed out of the bank. And the name of this bank-let's just say Regis Philbin (what's his purpose anyway?) is one of their boring spokespersons. GRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

And BTW-once again-Mam is not respectful. Sir is respectful. Mam is just a verbal indication of a visual calculation that wrinkles are apparent, the girls are sagging, and the caboose isn't as high as it used to be so Miss is not appropriate.

Congratulations Malachy.
