Post Script

I just spent the first hour of my morning sitting in a banks waiting room. Their hired protection wore a very fine Smith & Wesson model 29 with aftermarket grips, nickled. His belt held two speed loaders. Didn't want to deal. I offered six hundred.

He said, "Sir, please, just take a seat."

Some people, I tell 'ya.

Bet I could take him.


I now pack a beautiful temporary debit card. Life is well.

Isn't it a fine day.

Later, it's time for me to get to work.

  1. When I recently had to replace my debit card, it took 25 minutes of waiting, followed by 35 minutes as the (ahem) customer service (ahem) rep dawdled over a keyboard while attempting conversation.

    Something about the one hour of time...

    1. There were two ladies in customer service. Only one worked, as I sat there twiddling my fingers.

    1. Indeed. I opened an hour late. Tomorrow it's the doctors office for which I will lose another hour and a half of work.

  3. I'm surprised he was armed. The guards at most of the local institutions are relegated to opening the door for customers. I'm sure the policy is to let the place get robbed, don't put the customers at risk, etc.
    Why do they even bother, I guess it makes regular customers feel better. It makes us glad we are packing heat.

    1. He packed heat as did I....this is a large city filled with critters. Each one put down is five points, three if female.

  4. I have never seen an armed guard or a door opener in any bank in this town. The only bank robbers we have had only target banks right off the interstate. The robbers are not armed.

  5. "Bet I could take him."
    Would need to be a compelling reason for me to try.

  8. I can't believe he wouldn't deal with you. Must not have been his personal sidearm.

  9. Stephen, I hope your wallet turns up soon. I can't stand not being able to locate my information, and worse, the possibility that someone else has it.
    Best wishes,
