  1. This is a generalization for females. It would only apply to blonde females.

  2. Dad, doesn't the males go more like this?

    Drive up to cash machine.
    Roll down window.
    Realize you left wallet at home.
    Make person you're meeting pay for coffee.
    Repeat 2-3 times per six months.

  3. You better hope Dana doesn't see this post. Oooo are you in trouble if she does.

  4. Dad, I have NEVER done that. I always pull up perfectly to ATM thingies. So, it's highly unfair to generalize. Also, you will get your butt kicked. Tee hee.

  5. Son - unfortunately that is the true me.

  6. DAMN! Am I on YOUR blog or MINE? It seems a wee bit of my snarkiness is rubbing off on you and may I say, it is a wonderful improvement?

    Just so's ya'll know: I don't have an ATM card. And I'M always the one in line at Krogers behind the woman staring off in space while the total is being given to her. Then she gets this look of SURPRISE!! And only then does she start looking for her checkbook......checks at KROGERS? Easier to get a gun through the airport.
