"Just Until We Get to Know You"

JJ, as you may know, is nearing the end of studies at University. When he was in 2nd grade, we joined our credit union here in Sunny. It's just about clockwork....every Friday morning I go in and get our happy stash to pay for fun stuff for the weekend. Usually at about the same time, even...

Last week, the nice gal at the counter asked to see my ID before finishing things up with me, instead of just asking for my password. "Sure," I said, but felt a little silly as they all call me by name. (JJ can attest to this; he finds it really humorous.)

This morning, the somewhat serious young man asked me for my ID as well. I inquired if this was a new policy. "No, it's just until we get to know you." I laughed a little and he didn't understand that at all. "Well, I've been coming in once a week for around 15 years now, so I guess it's a new policy then." "No Ma'am ~ it's just until we get to know you."

That is so strange! Something's going on with banks, too. I had something unusual happen a few weeks ago. I had a check given to me by someone I didn't know, to pay for an item sold. So, I went to the bank that was printed on the check in order to cash it...just in case, you know? We don't have an account at that particular bank. Now, keep in mind that this check was not for a huge amount. This is a small town, I knew most of the people that worked in the bank, and they called me by name when I went in. Well, before they would cash the check, I had to show two forms of ID, and I had to put my THUMBPRINT on the check!!! I've never had to do anything like that before when cashing a check. So weird...

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

Maybe you should ask for 'their' ID in order to 'get to know them'. Sounds like your bank is going through tellers rather quickly.

Have fun with your happy stash this weekend.
