Calling the Bank Proves Easy

with 6 comments

It turns out that if you create a savings account to keep all the money you got from your college graduation party and then, after three to four years, never make a deposit or withdrawal, the bank people will send you a letter threatening to turn the money over to the state unless, ya know, you prove you are alive.

::waves hands:: Hello, alive person here! ::keeps on waving::

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It’s all over, and I’m standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

– “99 Red Balloons” as sung by Goldfinger

  2. Good thing my bank doesn’t do that. I don’t have enough money in my savings account to do anything. Not even collect interest.

    Love the color too.

  6. Um. I’m glad that was super easy, but don’t you also find it super annoying…I mean the whole turn your money over to the state…ridiculous.

    And why would you only make 45 cents of interest…that bank is terrible.

    Alright, enough complaining from me, here’s a non complaint – yay color! looks great.
