Ok, granted I do make fun of a lot of things, but even this one stood out as being extra weird, uber weird even. Yesterday, after two months of trying, I was finally able to open a savings account. I already have a checking account, my credit score is near perfect. It took me three banks & numerous paperwork to open a SAVINGS ACCOUNT. I can understand if it was a mortgage, but I'm trying to give these people a big pile of money, what's so hard about that? I was informed that it was because of the Patriot Act.
I finally came home triumphant, even though my savings account has a low interest rate, & I actually have to walk into the bank to get money out, no online transfers. Welcome back to 1957. On my voicemail a "don't answer" had called & asked me to go help him pick up a gun. I'm not usually for gun control, but my theory on it is this "Stupid people shouldn't have guns". It was just a nice juxtaposition, it takes me two months to get a savings account, but basically anyone can get a gun.
My second rant is when did going to pick up a gun become a date? Especially if the girl hasn't responded to your two previous phone calls and/or invitations, or ever shown any inclination to go gun shopping. Well wait, let me see if I have enough time to get my hair done.
It's nothing against this guy, I'm sure he's perfectly fine & capable of handling a firearm. However, this seems to be happening with a lot of different guys. A date is going to dinner, a walk in the park, the symphony. A date is not going to the grocery store, or to pick something up. It should be magical, there should be a thousand yellow daises. At least I now hold the record for the worst ask out ever.
