Much More Fancy ATM at the New Bank

Jan 29, 2013 Author Guy

Finally get fed up with my old bank and dumped them. My new bank is just down the street and today I used the ATM to make a deposit, something I would never trust my old bank to handle. There were nothing but constant problems with my account at the old bank – sometimes a deposit would not even show up on my account for 5-6 days after I had given them my cash money.

This new ATM is really fancy – probably three or four generations better than the one at my old bank. The new bank lets you credit your own deposit slip at home on the PC and integrate with the accounting software they gave me for free when I opened the account. It tracks everything that comes in and everything that goes out, and at the end of the year it does my fucking taxes for me, too. How about that?

So, this new ATM has a lot of options to get you exactly what you want, fast and easy. And it takes a photo of each check that you stick in the deposit slot, printing out a little paper receipt that includes the pictures in case you ever have a problem. My account is credited immediately and they send me emails and gave me the phone number of a real live person if I ever have to call the bank with a question. I feel a lot better about trusting this bank with my money.

Fucking Check Engine Light On Again

Why the fuck does the check engine light come on just a week or two before I have to take the damn car for the Emissions Inspection so I can get my tags renewed? How does the car know that this is the perfect time to fuck me over? Can’t drive on dead tags and can’t get tags with the check engine light one. So there goes a fast $800 to get the car worked on again.

Rewatching Mission Impossible III

Jan 20, 2013 Author Guy

Most action movies require something big and bag happening in the first 5 minutes of the movie. Mission Impossible III starts off with a boring adult party. I remember watching this movie when it first came out, and I liked it OK. Not a Tom cruise fan, particularly, but the movies were good with serious plots, some twists and turns, and lots of special effects.

For some reason, this movie takes a long time to “get busy.” Twelve minutes to set the stage and get to the guns and urgent background music. Still, it plays out well and it’s a good movie for a rainy day with nothing else to do because football for my teams is over.
