Oh [yes.gif]

I am laughing so much that I wake up my wife, sleeping in the next room, it's her day off you see today and as you know those Russian lasses enjoy sleeping a little longer than the old Greek, [wink.gif]

She came over to see why do I make such a loud noise! [embarrased.gif]

Now she is back in bed for more leisure time... but not happy with me because I splattered my coffee all over my front, especially when I read that you were able to read the barclays girl name, "Jenny", in her Badge! [lol.gif]

Absolutely Brilliant ..... and the wake up call that I needed for today!

Malcom,
Good to have you back, but please in future give the folks that know your writing style a warning.
You made Wizzy splurt his coffee and it is your fault that my computer is covered in beer. [rolfsmall.gif] Image
I will by the way accept being called a heathen because my computer is not covered in Oloroso [whiteflag.gif]

Malcolm

Could it be that your problems appeared from your own inactions as you have't prepared the ground in advance?

I have to admit from the start that I frequent banking establishments very infrequently and perhaps my view was clouded by those distant memories of going to open my very first bank account at the Midland Bank, accompanied by my Dad.
Did you speak to your Bank Manager... now they call themselves "Personal Advisers" of the possibility that your wife will arrive pretty soon and she will need a personal account?

I did visit my brance and spoke to my personal adviser......BS to find out what I have or my wife has to do before been able to open a Bank account?

Oh yes that little stupid Utility paper with her name on it....... wasn't difficult to arrange it, she was still in Russia ..... and the rest was a breeze.

Just to let you know.....

Hanna applied for a Visa Credit Card via her Bank (Barcklays) and she was approved......

What I am not happy about is the Max credit she was given! [wink.gif]

£2500 ....... Now I have to start getting worried and keep an eye on her not to let her going shopping alone......... [sad.gif]

You know these Russian women go wild when they get a CC in their hands!
