Sick of Pressing Buttons and going on Hold…

86-year Old Lady’s Letter to Bank
  

The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times.

Shown below, is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year old woman.



Dear Sir:
 

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.


You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.


My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has  caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.
I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, — when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the  impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.


My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no  longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.


Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete.


I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative..


Please note that all copies of his or her medical history  must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.


In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.


I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button  presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service.


As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.


Let me level the playing field even further.

    
     

     Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.
 

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month.
By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person.

Be aware that it is an offense under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope.

When you call me, press buttons as follows:

IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALLING, PRESS THE STAR (*) BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

#1. To make an appointment to see me

#2. To query a missing payment..

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.


#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry.


             
The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

      While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.


May I  wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

 

We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much too piss us off.

#10. This is a second reminder to press* for English.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

Your Humble Client

And remember: Don’t make old People mad.

Press 8 for Customer Service

Press 8 for Customer Service

Just goes to show – doesn’t matter whether you’re young or old, man or woman, single or married  – I bet you’re still fed up to the back teeth with pressing buttons, being put on hold and rarely being able to speak to a real person. Let’s fight back – I love this. Pass it on and let’s give bureaucracy the boot!

Top 10 Unusual Pick-Up Lines

Pick Up Lines

Pick Up Lines

Anyone who’s spent time in the single’s scene has no doubt been subject to an array of bad pick-up lines, from giggle-inducing gems (“Are your legs tired, ‘cause you’ve been running through my mind all night”) to un-original fallbacks (“You have beautiful eyes” – that’s right, they’re up here).  At best, they might give you a laugh and at worst they may make you throw up a little in your mouth.  But guys keep trying, god love ‘em, and here are some of the best efforts.

  1. “Bond…James Bond.”  This is just funny.  It would make me laugh, or at the very least, I’d let him buy me a drink.
  2. “Let’s have breakfast tomorrow.  Should I call you or nudge you?”  The success of this depends entirely on delivery.  If he’s super suave, he might get away with it.
  3. “If I had a nickel for every time I saw someone as beautiful as you, I’d have five cents.”  This is unusual in that it’s actually kind of good.  It’s a new take on the “You have beautiful eyes” number, but much more effective.  If delivered in a sincere fashion, this one could be really sweet.
  4.  “Haven’t you seen me somewhere before?”  This one may make you do a double take, and anything that extends the conversation counts as a winning pick-up line.
  5. “If I told you you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?”  Okay, this one is not new, but at least it shows a little effort and an understanding of the tricky art of double entendre.
  6. “I lost my teddy bear, will you sleep with me?”  This one is unusual in the worst way.  It not only gives off a creepy, stalker vibe, it also says you have spaceship sheets and your “roommate” is your mom.  Ick.
  7. “You don’t sweat much for a fat chick.”  Has anyone in the history of dating ever made this line work?!  I think not.
  8. “Do you work for AT&T?  ‘Cause you’re raising my bar.”  This is another on the long list of occupational pick-up lines, but at least it’s current.
  9. “I may not be the best-looking guy here, but I’m the only one talking to you.”  This one could go either way.  It’s pretty insulting, but also self-deprecating, so it really depends on the girl (and how drunk she is).
  10. “Let me read your future.”  This is accompanied by the guy taking your hand and writing his phone number on it.  Cute and confident.  If he does it enough, maybe someone will call back.

Top Six Places to Meet Fun SHI Singles

If you’re SHI, chances are you’ve been trying to figure out a way to broaden your singles experience beyond just the bars and the clubs. Or maybe you’re a person who doesn’t even really like hanging around bars. Where do you go to meet new people? Honestly, bars and clubs aren’t the only places to meet new people. Single, Happy and Interested people can be found in all sorts of spots where you wouldn’t even thing of looking. They’re hidden in the most unlikely places. All that you have to do is look!

The Book Store

Who's SHI ?

Who's SHI ?

This is a great little nook where no one seems to think about looking for singles. There are few other places where you can find a huge group of very intelligent single people all in the same place. Best of all, meeting people in this venue is extremely easy. All that you have to do is peak over at the book that the person next to you is about to buy. If it’s something that you’re interested in, make a comment, and them *boom* you’ve just met a new person.

Your Thursday Evening Class

School is THE singles hookup. Take a class on a Tuesday or Thursday night, then take the SHI single you meet there out for a drink on Friday! Foreign language classes and music classes always seem to attract interesting people.

The Grocery Store

I can’t even begin to count the number of Single, Happy and Interested people I’ve met at the grocery store. You’ve just got to keep your eyes open and you’ll see that this place is a hotbed for singles action.

Your Exercise or Yoga Group

A Yoga group is a great place to meet new people.

a heck of a way to eyeball each other!

a heck of a way to eyeball each other!

I know this from personal experience. In fact, I met my current girlfriend at a yoga group. She was right in front of me stretching every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, and before long we hit it off and it became something beautiful. And this type of story is by no means uncommon.

 

Your Neighborhood Film Club

If you’re a film buff, this is a great way to meet people who share your interests. Almost every town has one of these, and I’ve met some of the coolest people when I’ve attended the one in my home town. A great film is always an excellent basis for conversation. At my club, we used to go out for drinks or coffee afterward and talk endlessly about our thoughts on whichever pretentious art film we’d decided to watch that week.

Church

Now this may sound like a long shot (or a joke) but it’s not. If you’re religious, church is THE singles hookup. And thankfully, many churches in America are much more open than they used to be. So even if you are a part of the LGBT community, finding a great church where you can be spiritually enriched and meet some SHI singles at the same time is easier than ever.
