Fun Little Chat at the Bank
I was out this morning around 10 AM doing errands (which, as you know, are pretty easy because few people are doing errands at 10 AM on a non-holiday Friday) and made a stop at my local bank to make my rare credit card payment. I stroll up to the teller (no customers in the bank, as usual) and slide my check and payment coupon to her. In a good mood, she asks me if I am looking forward to the upcoming weekend. As an early retiree among many others here in this forum, you can probably guess how I answered her:
"Every day is like a weekend!"
(I did not tell her why
I said that but it doesn't really matter, does it?)
The rest of my errands were quick, easy, and uneventful.
