10 things I've done that I bet you haven't

This is from wayyy back in my archives. I don't think many of you ever saw this. It was fun to do. Anyone want to play along??

1. Gone to the World Series, in Box Seats (KC vs. St. Louis, late 80's)
2. Been part of a truly first rate marching band, like the kind you see on T.V.
3. Come home (while still living at my parents) and find the big oak in the back yard on fire. Calmly checking with my brothers about why is the tree on fire, again.
4. Been in a serious car accident, and unexplainably escaping injury-free. (My seat was smashed against the steering wheel. I was between the two, and had not a bruise).
5. Dissected a human cadaver.
6. Helped someone take their first steps again after a spinal cord injury
7. Helped someone learn to sit up by herself after she had a head injury. Being there every day, twice a day, to help her learn to sit, transfer, stand, walk, and drive. Cry with her, be exhausted with her, bask in the joy when she lives on her own.
8. Go on a blind date, get engaged 6 weeks later. Get married 7 months later.
9. Give birth standing, 3 times
10. Get surrounded by the police in a bank, while the bank manager says, "I want her arrested." (Long story, but it was all a mistake.)

I came close with #8. In my case, "Go on a blind date, get engaged 3 months later. Get married a year to the day after the first blind date."

Well, ladies, I had to return some money to the bank because I had made a deposit and taken cash out immediately. Shortly thereafter I was notified that the check was being held up in the other bank due to a dispute between my husband and his ex-employer. After I made the return, the police rushed in, guns drawn and the Brilliant Bank Vice President (BBVP) pointed at me and shouted, "I want her arrested!"

The police were very polite and professional to me, and asked all the right questions and determined that they had no authority to arrest me. I did have to go to the station the next day to discuss all this with a detective and found out the bank had made a complaint against me for "FORGERY". With no evidence of any sort.

It must have confused the poor old BBVP when he thought I was forging checks, taking out cash, and then bringing it back. Whatever.

The entire incident was stamped 'UNFOUNDED' with the police, the bank was fined for frivolously pushing the bank robber button, and I was asked not to bank there in the future. I agreed.

Wow! Great things to know about you - The World Series? Really? So cool.

And, anyone who had you as a support through an injury like that is blessed.

What wonderful things for the most part...except that no. 10 spot..oh my, what a very odd mess girl! That must have been so scary or embarrassing...I'm not sure which one, but either way, I'd be shaking from all of the confusion! Asked not to bank there? Well! I wouldn't have bothered with that attitude! You poor girl!

Goodness !
You were *asked* not to bank there ?
Many folk would have been considering lawsuit for defamation of character , mental distress etc.
The bank got off very lightly for such a complete fiasco of their own making.....
Not a pleasant experience for you, though.
