First Step: Call my mom and ask for access to her safe deposit box. (2 hours, 30 minutes...thanks Officer Joe for getting her that much needed cell phone.)
Second Step: Drive to my mom's bank. (10 minutes)
Third Step: Ask bank lady for access to safe deposit box. (2 minutes)
Fourth Step: Sign up for a free checking account...I seriously need to work on just saying no. (13 minutes)
Fifth Step: Open the safety container, ruffle through it's contents, resist urge to take my almost matured bonds. (4 minutes)
Sixth Step: Put the bonds back and take my birth certificate. (1 minute)
And there you have it folks. I'm not even the President of a fan club and I could manage to get the thing in under a day.
Side story: Just answered the phone at my office and it was my mom. She wanted to tell me about the new alcoholic beverage for Jews.
Wonder how much it costs...
