Adam and Eve go to BMO
Well yesterday we went to the bank. I had opened a knew account for myself last year to deposit all that money that I was going to make from my knew job. Well I quit my job after about one month. I saved all my hard earned cash for the month and opened a knew account for myself. They have been sending me monthly statement ever since. Yesterday my husband informed me that they have been billing our joint account over $2.00 a month for these statements that basically tell me that I have made .30 cents this past month. So we went to the bank to cancel the unnecessary statements. We ended up with a male teller probably in his early twenties. We explained the situation and he said that he would promptly change it so that we would no longer receive statements. At this point I asked him for a refund on my previous statements which I never asked to receive and be charged for in the first place. He said that he couldn't refund the entire 11 months but he agreed to 6 months ($12.00). He asked what account to post it to and I immediately said mine because I negotiated the refund to begin with and my husband immediately said the joint account because that's were the money was originally taken from. After a little bit of friendly bantering back and forth maybe only 3 seconds worth the teller said something .... He said, is this what marriage is like? I'm never getting married. He proceeds to go on saying that it is like Adam and Eve. First she takes his rib and then she feeds him the poison apple. I looked at him with a surprised look on my face and asked him if he had a girl friend and he said no. I said aha well that says a lot. He said that he had three older brothers that were all married and that was enought for him. I was originally so angry with my husband that he didn't say put the money in my wife's account and add another $20.00 on top of that. I soon realized that what I was really angry with was that this young man didn't see us as a shining example of a great marriage that he would like to someday have. I know that we have a great marriage. To all the young men out there marriage is about sharing, loving and laughter. If you really think of us women as the evil Eve portrayed by this young man then here is a huge tip for you. STAY BY YOURSELF, MARRIAGE IS NOT FOR YOU!!!!!!
