Random Thoughts Regarding Money

I dug in my purse for a pen. I don’t know how many times I have done this exact same dance. Why can’t they put pen loops in all purses?

I sign the back of the check and get in line. Someone asked for their balance. It was not phenomenal. How many times had I heard this request and the balance was unimpressive? That had to be a sign. Not only that the economy was messed up, but that people who didn’t know their balance also didn’t have a lot to keep track of.

What if the person asked and the balance was a million dollars? Would the teller write it down or announce it?

I moved up in the line and asked to cash my check, giving my ID as well as the document. The next person in line was asked if they had thought about refinancing. When did bank tellers have to be saleswomen and men too? I guess it helps drum up business to let people know what’s out there. I bet they get a lot of no’s. It would be better to offer classes in financial management like Lowe’s and Home Depot and the Craft stores’ DIY classes.
