It’s a cold day, so I don’t mind the walk. I’ve been good with the cash lately. Any time I have any, I’m headed to the bank on the lunch break to make a cash deposit.
This time, I’m asked if I’ve heard about the credit card they’re offering.
“I’m not interested.” I say to the teller.
They insist, on telling me about it, about it’s great rate and I continue to refuse. Finally, they add, “You can move over your current credit card balances for zero percent financing for twelve months.”
Then I told her I don’t keep a balance on my credit cards. She looked confused and then I said, “I have a zero balance on my credit cards.”
She paused for a moment.
Then she quietly circled my bank balance and told me to have a good day.
