Bank Misery, Part V

Just got a call from Sharon. The bank statement I provided to her is not adequate to move my standing orders. I have to supply her with an official list, obtainable only from Bank Mizrahi. Sharon claims that I can get one from any of the several Mizrahi automatic information machines sprinkled around town, but I just know the first one I pick will be out of service. I think I'll have to schedule an expedition to Ramat Aviv one morning. Ugh.

Dear Savta Dotty,
I have not been around reading blogs lately while I finished up a writing project. I came by your site to thank you for your generous comment and good wishes on my blog this morning. And I have been reading through the "ban misery" saga! Oh me, oh my! I remember those days so well. I was 20 years younger, and the incompetencies and inconsistencies in government agencies or banks etc. used to bring me to tears of rage and frustration. Wow! These posts surely brought back memories ...
I am amazed and in wonder of your patience! And, I am holding you in my thoughts as you work through this!

Tamar - I feel like it's a kind of game: I make a move, then They make a move. Sooner or later, the game will end, and another one will start. My frustration used to be much greater when I focused on winning!
