There was a letter in the mail from a bank. It was a “special offer” (yet again) for a credit card. I don’t need another credit card, even though the offer was being made to me because “you’ve banked with us for the last [xx] years”.
And, anyway, the number of years – although considerable – wasn’t accurate. They hadn’t taken into account the fact that I had an old passbook savings account with them for quite a few years before I opened the account I still have with them. But, of course, that was in the days before computerisation!
