Zathras and the ATM Machine

A little something for the Babylon 5 fans out there...

Me: Hello?

Mrs B: Yes, what now.

Me: I'm at the ATM machine. What's our PIN number?

Mrs B: Don't you know our PIN number?

Me: I thought I did.

Mrs B: It's 1234.

Me: I tried that. It didn't work.

Mrs B: Are you sure?

Me: Yes, I tried over and over! Did you change it?

Mrs B: No, why would I do that? Are you using the right card?

Me: Yeah, it has our bank name on it....It's grey with a VISA symbol.

Mrs B: That's not the bank card. That's a VISA card. The bank card is blue and says "Check Card."

Me: Hold on...let me look. Wait. What's this? Oh. Here it is. What's that other card?

Mrs B: It's a VISA. We don't use that one.

Me: Why do we even HAVE that one?

Mrs B: It's a backup in case we get overdrawn on that account. If you want I have a little sticker I can put on that says, "Not the One," or "Never use this."

Me: Zathras can never have anything nice.

Let's back it up a bit:

PT: I am going to need some money for the trip.

Mrs. B: Maybe you should go to the bank.

PT: Where is that exactly?

Mrs. B: 76th, and make sure you use the Tyme card and not the credit card like you did last time. We had to pay interest on that "cash advance."

Pt: OK, no problem.

Famous last words.

It's even funnier after reading your wife's comment.

I definitely need to use an excuse to say "NOT THE ONE" in class sometime soon ;-)

Dear Dr. Redundant,

You were at the Automated Teller Machine machine? In need of your Personal Identification Number number?

Please repeat yourself again.

Seriously, that was funny! What a great couple you two are.
