I was at my bank putting some stuff in a safe deposit box.


A couple was at one of the banker's desks trying to get something notarized.  I recognized the guy as one of the "white elephants" in town.  We have met a couple times at social gatherings, but that's it.


Turns out he didn't have any ID with him, and the banker wasn't going to notarize the letter.  His wife was looking irritable, so I took my chance.  I walked up and said: "Hi Tim, how are you"? Then I turned to the banker who I knew and said:


"it's ok, Mary, I can vouch for Tim.  He and I go way back".  His wife smiles and shakes my hand, and Tim is grinning too.


He says thanks, and asks me for a business card.  I give him one and say: "How about if I can you on Monday and we'll get together later in the week?"  "Sure, he says, I owe you".......


I guess that's what experience gives you,I would have never thought that quickly as a rookie.........

Ha, he was probably at BankFC's branch.  Hey BankFC, watch out for the ACAT!

You seem very insecure.

Not that at all.  Just have decided to stop taking the high road in regard to participation in this board.


People want to act like assholes, well then I'll just jump right in and join 'em.

Don't you have some pamphlet holders to refill?

Jul 14, 2007 12:43 pm

Nope.  Today is Saturday.  I woke up, got some morning sex from my girlfriend , went to the farmers market downtown for some breakfast (a cheddar biscuit and a wild blueberry muffin) and to spend a little money on the hippie organic folks.


Now I'm going to Best Buy to check out high end digital cameras.  I want to have some pics I will take blown up and framed for my house.


Thanks for asking.

I don't think on my first day as a cold-calling rookie, I would have:


a)Known who all the white elephants were around my town.


b)Have thought fast enough to have said "street sense"


c)Made sure I got a set day to call.


You guys on here sure are hypercritical, I thought this was a place to learn from.........maybe I need to register on the Boglehead forum............
