About those kilt-wearing Proud Boys

Who says the Proud Boys are just a bunch of dummies? Think about it. They had to come up with that plan, purchase matching kilts, learn how to spell two words, then bend over bare- assed in each other's faces so they could write those two words on each other's butt cheeks. I'm certain for a Proud Boy that's got to be a big accomplishment.

When did this happen??????

I went to the BMV today to renew my license and found out something I wasn't aware of. "Beginning October 1, 2021, the federal government will no longer consider standard driver licenses and identification cards as sufficient forms of identification for air travel. TSA will require a federally compliant driver license, identification card or another acceptable form of identification (such as a US passport or military ID) to fly within the U.S."

That's on the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicle website! When did that become a requirement? To get one they require all sorts of identification I didn't have, so I just got a "non-compliant" one till October.

This doesn't sound like the "land of the free" to me.

Am I the last to find out about this?


Why banking institutions piss me off

I have a savings account with a certain bank. I'm not rich, but it's a rather good sum for someone like me that worked for the man all my life. I don't pay much attention to it, and try not to draw from it.

Well, some things came up and I had to dip into my savings. Since I don't pay a lot of attention to this account, I didn't notice that the bank started deducting money from the account every month. Apparently I had dropped below a certain magical dollar amount in my account and triggered a rather large "service charge". They got me for 3 months of "service charges" before one of the tellers that knows me pointed it out to me. If she hadn't told me they would have systematically taken money out every month, witling away my money. What exactly were they doing to earn this "service charge"? The only thing I can figure, it was to pay themselves for the trouble of deducting money from my account and keeping track of how much they were taking from me each month. That takes a lot of work, I'm sure.

Then came the most baffling part.

The teller said she would switch me to an account that didn't charge a service fee.

You mean "it's as simple as that?" I questioned.

"Yes" she said as she clicked her computer mouse to change me to a non- service charging account.
