How One Writer Finds Herself In An Open Relationship With Her Bank

August 2, 2011 by Caitlin Donovan
shefinds | beauty

As a person who fails miserably at successfully building a savings account, but excels in other areas such as retail therapy and cleverly dodging overdraft fees, the bank can be my best friend or my worst enemy, which is why we’re in an open-relationship.

I find that I, like so many of my peers get a “banker’s high” when depositing a paycheck, but get sick to my stomach at the thought of pressing “yes” to receiving a receipt after withdrawing cash from my good friend, the ATM. Lucky for me, when I first signed up for a checking account, the bank advisor (read: lifesaver) recommended I opt for overdraft protection.

I definitely owe her a gigantic edible arrangement and more. I’m also one of those people who will take advantage of weekend “time off” and go out all weekend, and then refuse to look at my checking account balance online until my next paycheck, and I don’t think that I’m alone on this one. For these reasons, I must stay in an open-relationship with my bank. Until I am older, more responsible, and ready to succumb to the idea of saving money, my bank and I definitely cannot take things to the next level.
