A Kim-Opoly Tale

Monday, October 14, 2013

I felt like I was playing a real-life game of Monopoly the other day. I went to close an old bank account and as soon as I stepped out of my car, everything reminded me of the classic board game. I seriously thought a little man would jump out of no-where with his top hat on. HaHaHa

What did I wear on my bank run? Well as you can see, it's still pretty warm here. Scratch that! It's HOT!  HaHaHa I threw on a skirt, top and some flip flops. I purchased the top & skirt the beginning of Summer. I would link it, but it's no longer available. HaHaHa LOFT really gets rid of clothes fast. Even sale items. Their turnaround is super quick. I thought the black & white stripes would be cool to wear, in case the bank threw me in jail for taking pics HaHaHa :) At least I would look fashionable (in my OWN black & white stripes) The lady at the bank complimented me. She liked my style and classic look. So that felt good! That's me! Ms. Classic! I keep things to a minimum.

Ok you guys...I'm parked...I'm going in...Let's see if my mission was accomplished. I bet outside surveillance was saying, what the hell is she doing! Ohhh, what a blogger won't do to get pics for a post! LOL >.<




Whew! I made it IN! Now, would I make it OUT! LOL Of course, bank security cameras were everywhere. So I asked the lady that was helping me, if I could take a few pics of certain things. She said, sure! I asked because I surely didn't want to go to jail over taking pics for a blog post! LOL

The people at the bank were really cool. It's a local bank. I need to switch banks. HaHaHa My bank is so stiff & stuffy. I bank at a national bank. They would never go for anything like this. They would definitely haul me to jail. :)

Oh well! A wagon was decorated below (It had a Saints theme, which is our local football team) and I couldn't help but think about the wheelbarrow game piece in the Monopoly game and some other things.


 


As I waited for my transaction, I thought it was only going to be about $50 (it was truly a forgotten/dormant account). To my surprise it was $200. I had to SMILE! I wanted to yell MONOPOLY!!! LOL

I COLLECTED my $200 and they even gave me these cute magnetized football schedules for my refrigerator. I hope another bank contacts me and says I've forgotten about an account somewhere. LOL

Wishing you guys an awesome Monday! Remember, life is a game. Play It! Now I want a Candy Land experience! Guess I'll just have to settle for playing Snackopoly.

hehe I really enjoyed reading this post, Kim! It broght me lots of memories from my childhood. I loved playing Monopoly and I would always choose the hat as my token.

It is always nice to obtain money unexpectedly. I once found a 20€ bank not in my pocket - which was something odd, because I never put money in my pockets - and I was over the moon with my newly found money, even if it wasn't that much :)

Nice outfit, wish I could still wear skirts and dresses, it is quite cold over here! Maybe I just have to figure out the winter way to wear skirts and dresses :p

Have a wonderful week, Kim! xoxo

You're so cute! That was a very fun read, Kim. Big banks would never let you take pictures inside. That little wagon is the cutest, and it's always great when you end up getting more money than you expected. Hope you spent it well.
