My mother called to tell me she had a huge argument at the bank. Apparently there’s a new rule saying you can only deposit money five times a year, after which you are charged.
‘I’ve now cancelled all my bank accounts,’ my mother said with a mixture of anger and pride. ‘After all it’s my money, and I decide what to do with it.’
‘Are you going to spend it on a cruise?’ I asked.
‘A cruise or possibly jewellery, in case there will be another war.’
