This represents my bank account. Can you find what is wrong?
Seems like a normal checking account with $0.90 on it. And yeah you’re almost as broke as I am, that is certainly wrong!
You know you have a financial problem when the poor college student is concerned for you.
Your account number looks invalid to me. Not only are there all those exes, but it’s only eight digits in total. Did you open it in 1947?
The balance looks great, though. Every financial professional will tell you that you want to keep a bare minimum amount in checking because checking accounts earn no or very little interest. As soon as money comes into the checking account, it should be swept into something that pays interest. I have multiple withdrawals made from my checking into high-yield (the term is relative: these days it just means more than 1%) savings accounts each week to accomplish this. Of course, I keep my balance higher than yours because there are costs associated with insufficient funds to cover a withdrawal, and, sadly, I’m nowhere near as organized or anal retentive as you are, so it’s my shame to always have too much in checking. It’s only the truly successful cash managers who can keep their checking accounts under a dollar. Bravo!
Or were you looking for an answer that mentioned the screen colors? They seem a little tame for you.
Herr Doktor… As someone who has been through a divorce in the last four years, I’d have to say a positive balance is a reason to look up. I mean, with THAT kind of moolah around, you can eat ramen (at least once a day,) for a week! Seriously, though, with your talents I’m sure you’ll be able to busk your way to a better balance than mine in no time flat. Furthermore, it’s a fairly recent phenomenon that I myself have a positive balance at the end of the month, every month, anyway.
All that aside, though, these days it’s not so bad to be caught with your pants around your ankles once in a great while, as long as it doesn’t become a habit. That’s a long rabbit-hole to fall down, and it’s not a fun ride.
I think TED nailed it.
Looks like Citibank. Don’t worry, it’s FDIC-insured. Hahahaha!
[initials] Oh, like Faustus has a problem being caught with his pants around his ankles…
All of those “checks in the mail” messages left by the porn producers on your voicemail turned out not to be true?
