A Banking Bonus!

I went into the bank yesterday to check on our finances as I thought I’d overspent.
My pension money went in today as did a small annuity but I wasn’t taking any chances. You never know (well you do) but delays happen and I don’t like to spend before expected money is actually paid in.
The cashier looked at my account and said
‘Congratulations are in order!’
Looking somewhat confused as I knew I wasn’t pregnant, he added that I had been with the bank twenty years to the day.
To which I replied
‘What do I win and where’s my cake?’
He laughed and said there weren’t any prizes but he could give me a pen.
Wow. I came away not only with a sufficient credit balance, but a pen AND the added bonus of a tin of mints!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    No parade? How about a higher interest rate on your money? Well congratulations! πŸ˜‰

  3. That’s as good as banks give now. All I get is a man with a baseball bat asking for me to put some more funds into the account.

    LOL on asking for a prize! I think I am going to have to ask our bank where our pen is! πŸ™‚
    Yay on the good news about your account balance and on your bonus. πŸ™‚

  5. Jim Borden says:

    I hope the pen at least came with some ink in it as well!

  6. Nothing like a bank teller with a sense of humor. Good thing he at least had a pen to give you after getting you all excited.
