Money in the bank


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I had a very good day yesterday, nearly free of self-pity and low-esteem, basically back to my regular abnormalness

that on September 4, 2003, I finally knew how to keep from starting to drink again and that my HP was the key

that Mary Christine spilled green tea all over the conference table during a professional presentation yesterday -- apparently, she's human, just like me!

that I am not as friggin' dumb as the managers of the Legal Departments at either BEAL BANK or COMPASS BANK here in Houston. My Mom has money invested in accounts in both those banks. Money totalling about $95K. I have a Durable Power of Attorney that is accepted in every other legal, financial and medical institution that I have presented it to. However, those 2 banks will not accept my Mom's POA, which means they will not even accept her address change now that I have sold her home. She now lives in a nursing home. The mail they send her does not always get forwarded by the Post Office and is lost wherever mail goes to when not delivered. This includes the 2006 tax information that I need. Both Legal Departments insist she must show up in person to sign papers. I have explained she is an invalid and often doesn't even know her name, much less not being able to travel. They leave me with no alternative other than to hire a lawyer and sue their friggin asses. I will begin that action this month and may try to at least double her money because of the trouble they are putting me through.
There! Just need to vent a little. (this may eventually be an esteem builder LOL)

If I don't slow down in the food department I will soon be wearing a vent. Oh. No, that would be a tent.

I should have been an attorney. I would take cases on like that pro bono.

There must be a lawyer hanging around Lamda somewhere. Good luck!

What a gift that your Mom has a trustworthy, loving son to rely on and entrust her well-being with. (I'd be spitting nails dealing with those banks!)
