Today I went to the ATM for milk and kitty litter. (Apparently Sassy used the last bag to get her car out of her dad's ice-covered driveway. She also neglected to inform me of this before she left town for a few days.)
I rolled my window down and noticed an ATM receipt sticking out of the machine. I grabbed it before it could blow away and took a peek.
Someone had made a withdrawal from their checking account. A checking account that has a balance of $30,218.96
THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. IN A CHECKING ACCOUNT.
Holy mother of all that is holy.
My balance? $23.59. That would be twenty-three one dollar bills.
(Now be honest, does anyone out there actually have that kind of money at the end of the month?)
