You madam are an amazing lady...and I condone everything you've said...particularly about getting old...but your mind is having none of that anyway.....bless you madam.
well said Ma'am .. give them hell ... or give them exactly what they give us
Wonderful. The banks are such a load of impersonal greedy burkes who grab your money by fair means & foul, use it to earn money and yet give you virtually zero interest
ROFL.. oohh I LOVE her, LOVE her!!!! Hahahaaaa, she's ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!! :-))
Not exactly a letter by an 86-old woman, but still to the point and funny to boot. http://www.snopes.com/busin...
I assure you, an 86 year old is well able to write such a letter. I live in a retirement community and know 3 residents who are 96, 96.5, and 97 and whose mind and wit are sharp as can be.Don't write off seniors! There is a woman in our long term care who just turned 107 in May and my conversations with her are terrific. She can fire off quips you would be stunned to hear.
I agree, my 92-year-old great-grandmother was quite coherent at that age, and wrote letters. However, this is an allegory, not an actual letter. It was penned by Peter Wear (confirmed), a columnist for the Courier Mail in Brisbane, Australia (where I live), for that publication’s “Perspectives” column, in 1999.
And the Snopes article makes more sense. It was not the bank's fault that things like bouncing checks happen.
How could it possibly be 'not the banks fault"???
Jolly Good, wot?
go to a credit union instead https://www.fool.com/invest...
This is delightful, although I am not quite sure it is "real." Nonetheless, it is worth it for the laugh and to remind folks that chronological age does not mean lack of mental acuity.
Bravo Ma'am! We can ALL learn from your wisdom, you are hereby my hero!!
It's funny and it could apply to many institutions. I personally love my banks. Just today, no lie, I came home to a message on my machine from my bank asking me to call them regarding my credit card. An actual human being answered. Turns out someone tried to use my cc # in another state. It was declined and thankfully my bank put a stop on my card and will issue another. If your bank doesn't function like this find another.
I love women like this...God Bless you !
very much worth a read and a chuckle
So funny Marie, so factual & the best quote...Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off.”
I'm sick of banks I hope they learn the lesson from this amazing old lady who give them a sip of there own medicine .Madam you rock 👍🏼😂😂
Good for her. I agree with her sentiments. She is one sharp person.
Priceless! You go girl!
This is very well put.. A gr8 slap and lesson to the Banking institution..... must read..
Really clever old lady!
It may well be priceless but it's also over a year old & making its 37th appearance here on FB. Yawn.
It may be making its 37th appearance for you but for me and others it is a first. Making me proud that someone informed the bank what we, the general public and seniors, think of their actions
Older than that. It was originally written in 1999, by a man, as a humor piece in a newspaper. The old woman angle was added in 2003.
We need to all do this.
she simply says what happens to elder people in such a great way, "chapeau"
Spelling police here. The word is 'cheque'.
It was originally written by a British man. In 1999.
It's Americanish. lcd English
Maybe in the UK.
She is so cool
I love this lady
You go girl!
No. It was send by a comedian. Not a lady
I love this! Don't give me ideas ......
Perhaps we could all follow this lady's example and send a similar letter to our banks. Drown them in paper work.
Yes! I love this woman
YOU GO GIRL
