This money went straight into a 'junior super saver'-type bank account and was generally forgotten (we're talking late 90s here).
so when the bank called a couple of weeks back and said 'these accounts have been inactive for millenia but they still have money in them, and waddyawannadowithit?'- i was quite surprised!
i said 'how much money are we talking about?' the younger girls had around $250 and $300 respectively, but the account belonging to miss 17 (who's been saving up for a new drum kit) had TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS in it!
boy was she happy when she found out, and it was instantly spent on a new kit (that's another blog post!) miss 11 and miss 12 on the other hand, got to fondle their cash for a little while before it was whipped away and deposited into another account...
(this is what happens when you live in a practically cash-less society - you become completely GA-GA at the sight of anything bigger than a tenner!!!
for more wordful wednesday, pop on over and see angie
