I was at Cub Foods tonight, bagging up my groceries, when I spotted the ATM at the Wells Fargo branch and decided to withdraw some cash. As I waited for the transaction to go through, I glanced at a stray ATM receipt sitting atop the machine. And boy, was it more interesting than I expected:
A withdrawal from a checking account with a balance of $363,142.39!!!
So many questions. I don’t know any millionaires I could ask, but is it normal for wealthy people to keep several hundred thousand dollars in a plain old checking account? Maybe they need to be prepared if they decide to buy a house that day?
And, who could it have been? What very wealthy individual would have been in Duluth, shopping at Cub Foods and using that ATM at 4:22 p.m. today? I almost don’t want to know; the truth is almost certainly not as much fun as the stories that can be conjured up.
I’m looking at the receipt sitting on my desk as I type this. It’s just numbers on a slip of paper, but it feels so out of place in my humble little house.
