Why is the Bank Lady's Dad a Financial Hero?
The other day I was waiting in an open office awaiting the return of the personal banker. As I was sitting there, a very elderly lady came in to the bank. She was at least 80 years old. Even at this age, this lady had the "fire" in her eyes. From this point in the story, I will refer to this lady as Bank Lady.
Since the line awaiting the bank tellers was at least eight people deep, Bank Lady took the opportunity to walk up and down the line of people and speak with them (her friend held her place in line).
She stopped by a lady who appeared to be dressed according to another country's customs and pleasantly asked, "Where are you from?"
The lady said, "I'm from Kenya."
Bank Lady said, "Well, Ken ya help me? HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
Bank Lady continued, "Seriously, though. I've been there!"
The other lady stared at her suspiciously.
Bank Lady, full of enery, said, "When I was twelve, my daddy loaded our family up on a boat and took a trip around the world. One of our stops was Kenya."
Bank Lady, even more alive upon recalling this great memory, continued, "We sailed out of the harbor in August and arrived back into New York in the springtime. It was middle April."
WOW! I sat there dumbfounded! Bank Lady's Dad had left a legacy. A life-long memory. He took his family on an EIGHT MONTH TRIP AROUND THE WORLD!
That took money. That took planning. That took commitment. I am still blown away.
For this, Bank Lady's Dad is an official www.JosephSangl.com FINANCIAL HERO!
