Spendin’ all your money on me and spending time on me.

…she’s got me spending
(Oh) Spendin’ all your money on me, up on me, on me

uhm… Remember, last time, when I told you about my credit card? Well, yesterday I received a phone call from my bank, saying that the Security deposit would come to its term on february 8th. Yeah, it’s been a year already. So if I want to keep that card, I had to pretty much fill the application again, and then they would send it again, and if I have proven myself worthy of this necessary spending tool of death, they would unlock the thousand bucks that were locked somewhere in here. That would be pretty good news. I kinda miss them, you know? And I give them too much of my money every month anyways :p.

euh… vous vous souvenez, la dernière fois, quand je vous ai parlé de ma carte de crédit? Ben hier, j’ai reçu un coup de fil de ma banque, disant que le dépôt de garantie arriverait à expiration le 8 février. Ouaip, ça fait un an déjà. Donc si je veux garder la carte, il faut un peu que je refasse la demande, et qu’ils la renvoient, et si je prouve que je suis digne de cet indispensable outil de dépense de la mort, ils débloqueraient le millier de brouzoufs qui sont coincés quelque part par là. Ça serait une plutôt bonne nouvelle. Ils me manquent un peu, vous savez? Et je leur donne trop de mes sous tous les mois de toute façon :p.

So I took half an hour off work, during the afternoon, so that I could get those things sorted out. In one year, my bank advisor has changed twice. I hope it’s because people get promoted a lot. Anyways, I am not even sure she will be the one who will call me once the reply will come from the credit thingies.

Donc j’ai pris une demi-heure du boulot, dans l’après-midi, pour pouvoir régler ces trucs. En un an, mon conseiller bancaire a changé deux fois. J’espère que c’est parce que les gens sont vite promus. Quoi qu’il en soit, je ne suis même pas sûr que ce sera elle qui m’appellera une fois que la réponse viendra des organismes de crédit.

Oh well, as long as everything works…

Bah, tant que tout fonctionne…

  1. What is that anyway with the account managers? I have the same thing with my bank in Canada, a new one every time….I can only assume that it is a deliberate policy to keep the managers objective. God forbid they may develope a relationship with the clients.

    They cannot possibly be promoting them at that rate.

  2. Orenata, well, the other possibility is that working in a bank sucks, and you have a pretty high turnover rate :p. Keeping the same advisor helps build a trust relationship, which would probably help the bank sell more products to the customer.

  3. Ca tombe bien que tu parles de banque, je vais justement ouvrir lundi en France un compte à celle que tu m’as recommandée, en espérant que ça me simplifiera la vie quand je viendrai à Toronto ! J’en profite pour te remercier de tes conseils !
