Some of the "references" may be strange to members "Across-The-Pond" but those
in the U.S., with a good memory, will understand the T.V. commercials of the past.

UA, we found it funny. Started off a bit slow but the humour improved - no 12 is a classic.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Twelve hit a nerve with me as well, save that it was me walking into a police station wearing a mask to pick up my firearms permit. Dang that was weird! (But everybody was pleasant -- congenial, even. I guess that even by then "mask madness" was starting to wear thin.)

Reminds me of that western serial - 'The Lone Ranger"

Who was that masked man ?
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Certainly the one about drawing cash from a human bank teller is pure nostalgia for us. Can't remember when I last did that, or when I last wrote a cheque. With the coming of Covid, we can make payments of up to £100 with a contactless bank card, and some traders are no longer accepting cash. With a mobile phone, with its extra layers of security, there appears to be no upper limit.

I think the smallest contactless payment I ever made was about 70 euro cents at the entry barrier to the gents' toilettes in Marseille St-Charles station -- they must have a very obliging payment processor....

For larger organisations, debit card transactions can be on the order of 5c per transaction. There's a one-time set-up cost and then you plug the internet in and It Just Works. Now credit cards, those are f*ing expensive to process.
