unexpected 2

just checked the mail and received from my bank a little birthday card [complete with "happy birthday" and company logo on front], with a handwritten note inside:

"Dear [mdog],

    Just wanted to wish our very special customer a happy birthday!

    Your friends at Peoples Bank, [nearest branch]"

with the signatures of the four employees that work there [apparently] at the bottom, none of whom i would know by name if i walked in at this very moment. and why underline the very?

i'm a little weirded out.

that is really, really, weird.

So, have you been hiding those millions and millions from us? Any offshore accounts you want to confess?

and you probably think i'm kidding.
