So we moved here and joined a large banking system.
We got debit cards... he lived through that.
We started paying bills on-line...he lived through that.
Today would have sent him over the edge. I took off to town to deposit a check. Simple right? Well, not exactly. When I got to the drive-up window (where he will still ONLY use the one where you put the money/check/whatever into the drawer that is attached to building and not the automatic tube system) all the lights were red. Hm...all the drive-ups closed? I drove around to the front of the building and found three women sitting at a table. I got out and they said that the bank was temporarily closed but that they could take deposits. um....not sure why, but I didn't feel quite comfortable giving them a check and deposit ticket outside the front of the bank...call me old-fashioned...
So I learned how to use the new ATM... it now will take deposits. It actually scans the check, deposits it into your account and your receipt will show a small little copy of the check you deposited. Very Cool!!
Then I called hubby to tell him. Oh my... first he decided that the bank was being audited. Maybe.. I told him what I did and he was really ok with it... (of course I had to immediately come home and check on-line and make sure the deposit was there)
Then I was talking to DD#1 and she freaked... WHAT!! Are you kidding me? I use the same bank and I don't have any cash! Have they closed the bank? Have they frozen our assets?
Oh, she is her daddy's daughter....
info on the truck tomorrow...and a new quilt....
