good news/bad news

Good news first...The State of Wisconsin has taken me off their unemployment role.

Bad news...The State of Wisconsin has taken me off their unemployment role.

I'm walking around with a paper check (cheque) from my current employer and no permanent home address to start a local bank account with. Oh, believe me, this is not a problem for long...I'm merely whining out of habit. Certainly not because anything is wrong. I've purposely chosen local banks during my working lifetime specifically because they were local. It's not bitten me in the arse until now. It's just a little bite, a nibble, a tease (if you please).


  1. It sounds as if your relationship with banks has been much more rewarding than any I've experienced.
    Some people have all the luck.

  2. I do the regional bank thing. That way if I'm out of local I still more than likely will have a branch.

    You have really had some changes in your life haven't you? I'm always amazed at how you handle these changes.


  3. you can always use the address of the friends with whom you are staying and change it.....

    I prefer regional (state level) banks as well....

  4. You folks have way too many banks :-) We have very few banks, and most of them are national, so money can be accessed anywhere in the country. They still like to have addresses for their clients, though... for new accounts sometimes they hold your money for a week unless you're paid direct to the bank.

  5. At least ya got a check! Thats really great these days!Hope ya have a wonderful weekend my friend
