I got a notice in the mail letting me know that if I opened up a new CD at the bank, they would give me $25.

I walked into the bank confidently. I knew exactly what I wanted.

I handed it to the teller, saying
“I have this piece of paper here that says you’re going to give me money.”


She looked at me with absolute terror before apparently realizing that I was not about to hold hostages.   Later it was funny.  At that moment it was not.  I did get the CD though.
