Bank Error In My Favor

The guy in front of me at the ATM forgot to pick up his receipt. I didn’t notice it until I requested a receipt for my withdrawel. When I grabbed it to pick it up it said the balance was $85,000. For one second I thought I’m finally seeing a real life version of Monopoly, “Bank Error In Your Favor” advance to Park Place. But no it was someone else’s non-bank-error, not in my favor. I know $85,000 isn’t even that much money. But why have it just sit in your checking account? Maybe 30k but put the rest in some kind of high interest thing. When I have $85,000 to spare I’m going to turn it into gold coins and hire a hobbit to hide it under a very special glistening rock. Anyway I took his receipt and now it sits in my wallet for inspiration. I left my receipt behind for inspiration, you know, in case a small child with a piggy bank walks by and wants to know how it feels to be one step above keeping coins in a glass animal.

    I think you set a one-day blogging record. I look forward to tomorrow’s 9 posts.

    (You’re linked up on my blog now, and not just because you expressed love for Zep the very week I’ve rediscovered them.)
