Reincarnation Radio

Well, I did it again. I promise that I really didn't mean to make the girl behind the bank counter feel bad. I stopped by Wal-Mart (or as it is known in the South...Wal-Marts) to stock my shelves for Hurricane Hannah and since my bank has a branch inside the store I stopped there first to deposit a check that I had been carrying around forever. Did I have a deposit slip? Of course not but the little girl (probably all of 18) behind the counter said, "Oh that is no problem, all I need is your social security number." I spouted off the number and she frowned and said she must have entered it incorrectly and could I give it to her again so I did and it still didn't work. It was about then that I had a revelation and said, "OH, I am so sorry that was my husbands social security number." I then gave her mine which of course worked." There was a stack of weather radios on the counter (even the bank is getting ready for Hurricane Hannah) and I'm checking them out when the little bank clerk says, "If you bring your husband by this week and add him to your checking account he will receive one of these radios as a gift." Without missing a beat I said, "Thank you but if I bring my husband by this week he will be very disappointed if all he gets is a free weather radio. He has been dead for 6 years and I feel certain that he would expect AT LEAST a 52 inch plasma TV." Note to self: Must remember that not everyone has the same twisted sense of humor that you have.

But Dave loved gizmos!

I think he would have appreciated the weather radio - plasma smasma!

Anny you are so right - the more gizmos and gadgets, the better.

You should have got all "teary eyed" , smothered a sigh and then said "Oh my dear husband died six years ago, may I have the radio so I can listen in his memory?"

There are a few of us that have that same twisted humor. Me and my 2 sisters would have rolled around in the floor at that one.
I guess you can call us the twisted sisters.lol...
Jan, I hope the storm isn't to bad there.
Take care.

Oh man, I wish I could have been there to hear that!

I keep seeing all these references in blogs to "Wal-Marts", but I thought they were just trying to sound hick or they were kidding around, but now it seems some people actually say it in normal conversation!
