Yesterday, July 5, I stopped at one of the local banks to pay my credit card bill (I’m old fashioned, I still like to use paper checks and pay in person) and I received a bit of a surprise. I really don’t think it had anything to do with my previous blog about old fashioned manners, but the timing was interesting.
The young lady (I’d guess her to be early twenties) took my payment information and entered it into her computer. She then looked directly at me and asked: “Do you mind if I call you William?” Somewhat taken aback, I said, “thank you for asking, and, yes, since you asked, you may call me William.”
Now, as I said before, I don’t know if she read my blog (I guess it’s possible) but she didn’t mention it or act like she recognized me. Nevertheless, I thought the timing was uncanny.
