Unfiltered Story #145998

I am the customer in this story.  I have telephoned my bank, because for some reason I am unable to apply for an overdraft via their website.  I explain the problem and eventually get put through to the Overdraft team.

The girl I end up speaking to asks all the usual questions, like name, address, current employment status, annual salary, whether I am a homeowner etc.  Then the conversation goes like this:

Overdraft Agent: Ok (my name), do you know of any impending changes to your situation in the next 12 months that would affect your ability to manage an overdraft.  Things like retirement, or redundancy?

Me (feeling in the mood for mischief): Hey, listen, If I could retire 12 months from now aged just 34 I would happily do so!

Overdraft Agent (now laughing): Yes, that would be lovely, wouldn’t it?

She eventually got me sorted out – I hope I made her smile because of my mischief!
