The Bank

You will need the following information to form an opinion:

I do not go to the bank. I have not stepped foot inside our bank since we moved in together in December 2003. I do not balance a checkbook or physically write bills. I do not go to the ATM machine. When I need money, I simply ask my husband for it. When I get my check, I hand it over to him. And I have a general idea of how much money we have at any given time. Do you see what I am saying?

I'm saying, I don't want to know how he makes the sausage, I just want to eat it.(That may have been a bad analogy).

On Friday, I got paid. On Saturday morning we were getting up early to get a home pregnancy test (this is a long story, but I am not pregnant). My husband told me that on the way, he wanted to stop and deposit my paycheck in the bank. Said check was on our entryway table. We both looked at it and discussed the check in detail because it was the first check to reflect my yearly raise. Then we got our respective things together, and drove to the bank.

When we got into the bank, the following conversation took place in the presence of two bank tellers, and a girl scout selling cookies. I am assuming the girl scout was approximately 9 years old.

(in front of the teller window)

Me: (Staring blankly at him)

Him: (Staring blankly at me)

Teller: Can I help you?

Him: Do you have the check?

Me: No. (still with the blank look)

Him: You didn't bring the check?

Me: No. Did you?

Him: No. You had it.

Me: No, I just pointed to it, I never picked it up.

Teller: Do you live far?

Both of us: (blank stares) No.

Him: Let's go get it.

Me: Alright. Do you want some girl scout cookies first?

Him: I am going to stay and get girl scout cookies, as punishment, you should walk home and get the check.

Me: You are scaring this little Girl Scout.

I was just along for the ride. I have no responsibility for bringing that check. The bank is not my gig...I'm was just there for the cookies.

It is so honestly refreshing to hear of someone who isn't afraid to let her spouse handle the money (wife or husband, I don't care, but to SHARE FUNDS). I hear more people talk about keeping everything separate and having to know in great detail and arguing over this and that. To me, if you don't trust your spouse with your money, don't get married.

And I bet the cookies were good, too!! (I just told LM this weekend they should sell G.S. cookies in the fall or around the holidays, not in January when the world is on a diet!)

The cookies were Delicious! I prefer the shortbread cookies, while my husband prefers Samoan's (which for political reasons had a recent name change to caramel coconut somethingorothers).

You can't beat a frozen Thin Mint!

I second what anonymous said--the frozen Thin Mint is among the most delectable of tastes known to the human palate.

I am pretty sure that, as the non-money-handling half of the marriage, you are absolved of all responsibility here. Reasonable expectations and all that.

Oh, how I wish I could direct deposit...My job doesn't offer it.

Direct deposit eludes me!
