kaNd vs The Bank Of Evil

I met my (good) banker this morning.

Following her advice I called the bad one's "Customer Service", learning I could contact too the neutral mediator if needed - yes, every bank has one, but believe me, LCL doesn't make this kind of information easily available! She had to call the Society Headquarter, and its address was well hidden in the fine lines of one of my contracts...

Customer Service answered 1) that a checkbook had been ordered on Sept.27 (what a coincidence, right when I was shouting at the answering machine...), and will be home on Oct.5, 2) that "litigation account" was just a word for a joint ownership (I'm not a lawyer, but I know better, thanks!)

A few hours later, I received a phone call from the agency director (not the same lady, obviously) who received my registered mail. She hadn't heard of this checkbook and had just ordered another one (how kind everybody can be with you when you turn angry...). Checking, yes, there was a checkbook already ordered, she didn't know, oops. And about the "litigation account" she just didn''t get it, because obviously it CAN'T be so (LOL) and anyway, such accounts can't be accessed through the Internet. Could it be I have hacker's talents w/o knowing it? Ratty must be rubbing on me! And BTW she obtained an appointment for me with the lady in charge of my account. Tomorrow, first hour. Who says that woman's never there, huh?

Now I'm just wondering, do I tell her right on the spot I'm leaving her bank and transfering all my money to BICS? Do I wait for my checkbook, pay my contractor, then go away with the remaining cash? Or just ask her what Mom has to do to take her money away as she asked me? Her portfolio is almost ten times mine ROTFLMAO

Awwwww. I'm sorry the bank is giving you so much trouble! Too bad we can't send Ratty down there to sort them out. ;)

Incredible. You shout instead of being a quiet customer, and everything happen... I received my checkbook this morning!

During my appointment I thought of asking all the interesting questions, among else, should Mom and I *both* sign the checks as it's a joint ownership account? The lady-in-charge (not to be mistaken with the lady-in-red, far more melodious LOL) was at a lost, she looked for, asked around, and yes! we have to. Thanks God I asked, I'd hate to see my checks come back unpaid...

I have a lot of letters to write to close Mom's own accounts, and first to open new accounts at my usual bank. Mme Borie, who's the lady-in-charge at BICS (I can tell her name because she's an angel, really) offered to go at Mom's house with the papers as she can't really walk.

Of course, all this gave me ideas for some more cartoons :o)

Curiously, before going to bed late night, I drew Râmâ's Oracle. It answered me "Tuesday", being the day of Mars (Ares), was the right day to win fights and achieve goals. And truly, the finishing day had been the key to the whole affair...
