I once had an appointment with a dentist for ‘oral surgery’ translate that ‘to pull a tooth’. My appt. was at 9:45. At 10:15 I asked if there was an emergency, the receptionist said he will see you as soon as he can. I told her I had been there since 9:45 and if I was in the chair by 9:30 I was leaving. At 9:30 I told her bye and walked out ( everyone in the office was smiling and nodding).
Out side, I said,”That was stupid, now I have to go thru the same thing, plus find another Dr. I still need the tooth pulled.”
But I taught them a thing or two. Hahahahahahahaha! As if it made a difference to them. I was the one who was put out.
While in business, I made a trip to Albany, Ga from NC to sell a piece of land. At closing, I told the attorney I wanted a check that I could cash immediately. I knew the bank’s policy of holding an out of state check ten days. I did not need the money but wanted it available if I did. The Attorney, my BIL Sonny, and I walked to the bank. I assured by the banker and the attorney that this check ‘Cashiers Check’ was good anywhere in the USA.
But, But but…..
Yep, every penny in cash.
I left the bank smug, I guess I showed them. I went to another bank and opened a new account. They gave me some rib eye steaks for opening with them.
I forgot one small thing (maybe two or three), I had a direct deposit going to NCNB, ins. taken out etc. The first of the month my account reopened automatically because of the direct deposit.
I fixed it all and went to another bank to re-close the account. I am sooooooo smart some times.
The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, he looks good doesn't he.'
