( 8:36 AM ) teahouse
Thanks for being so cool yesterday about that mixup with your bank account.
When I exercised my Power of Attorney privileges and opened that certificate of deposit for you, I had no idea that the bank would take the $2,500 out of the wrong savings account.
Therefore, even though it caused an overdraft on your account by over $1,000 and incurred a bunch of fees, that was the bank's fault, not mine.
But the fact that you were so cool about it, and didn't get upset, was really, really nice.
In fact, when you went online and saw the overdraft, you called me to make sure I was ok, not to yell at me for stealing your money and screwing up your account.
And you even said, "If you need money, you can take all you want, no questions asked."
But now it's all straightened out, the bank has apologized and refunded the overdraft fees, and all is well.
You are the best dad ever.
As a token of my appreciation, I hereby forgive you for not letting me go to the Milli Vanilli concert with my friends when I was 13, and they came to town, and I begged and pleaded and cried and said I'd die if I didn't go.
I see now that you had amazing foresight when you said, "$18.00 is too much to spend on a rock concert. Someday you'll thank me for this." #
