Haiku For You....

Flight Of Fancy

Flight across several states
Of mind and conscience.

From The Field...

"After lunch Cheryl and Greg came in the back door red-faced and panting. They said that they had just pushed a car through the parking lot that had stalled at the drive-thru.

What made it so difficult was the 80 year old driver kept putting on the brakes..."

The Real B@*k Transfer Day....

"As I went into the Courthouse last week to record a Deed of Trust for a mortgage closing, I could not believe that it took an hour to complete something that should have taken no more than 5 minutes!  When I walked through the metal detector, the sheriff's deputy was waiting for me with a mortgage application. A Clerk of Court employee was walking in the door as I was finishing up with the deputy and started asking about a car loan.  Once I entered the Register of Deeds office, three employees jumped me and began asking about our checking and savings accounts.  I told them about the switch program, how easy it was to changeover, and they all got fired-up and were ready to leave their b%*k and come to the credit union. 
B@*k Transfer Oink!

I am in the process of talking with the Clerk about using an empty office at the Courthouse next time I go....."

Getting A Feel For Work.....

"The manager had an employee resign and he now has a position he is trying to feel.  He is trying to interest one of my long-term tellers.  She will do a good job...."

A Good Man....

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
- Edmund Burke

NCUA Board member Mike Fryzel provides an interesting defense of the NCUA's "Don't Worry, Be Happy Plan" for the upcoming "free exit" of credit unions from the NCUSIF.  Well worth a read in the November, 2011 edition of "The NCUA Report" (on page 4, "Common Sense Approach Is Always Best").

If you want to see what all the bluff and bluster is about take a look at "NCUA Strategically Defaults".

In this instance, no one should question that Mike Fryzel is most definitely a good man....

From the Field...

It was the most unusual thing I had ever heard.  All I could think was:  "How bazaar!"

Don't Ask Don't Tell...

We surmised that the Agency looks carefully across the various branches of government as a source of innovative ideas, policies and best practices.  Those new concepts and creative insights are then molded, modified, and transformed internally to conform with the unique vision, mission, culture and mystique of the Agency.

Some of us were convinced that the Agency had obviously in-sourced from the military branch the policy of  "DADT" - (Don't Ask, Don't Tell!).

Of course molded, modified and transformed to conform with the unique vision, mission, culture and mystique of....into "DADC" ***.....

From The Field...

"She is one tough girl; and, she spent the entire day in the office in labor, because we were so short-handed...."

(Great admirer of dedication, but.... just breathe deeply, now blow, breathe...)

Haiku For You....

To Not Stay Away

Only connection
With tomorrow is hoping
That you might decide...
