Rather than use the ATM for cash today I went into the bank to cash a check and to say hello to the manager and any familiar tellers. I asked about the sudden closing of one of the nearby shops. I got more news than I expected. I knew the owners and some of the staff of the shop and hadn’t heard as many details. It was stuff I wouldn’t have seen in the newspaper and I am not going to repeat here. I did get some information that I could use in planning my future business.
I doubt if I’ll ever need a loan again. If I do it will be easier and possibly with good terms than if I had just been a number in the system. Besides the ATM doesn’t give Tootsie Rolls.
