Gone are the days when we drove to a bank to conduct our financial transactions.
It has taken J.J. a total of 5 hours over two days to settle about getting a cashiers check issued from our bank account.
- We need to renew Honu’s vehicle registration.
- Our South Dakota representative, America’s Mailbox, requires that a cashiers check to be made out to Pennington County Treasurer, but mailed to America’s Mailbox so that the check can be physically delivered to Pennington County Treasurer.
- South Dakota is not under lockdown. Therefore, it is difficult for the clerk at America’s Mailbox to comprehend why we do not want to just run to our bank.
- After talking to 5 different representatives at Wells Fargo and a couple of “supervisors” J.J. thinks that the situation has been resolved.
We will find out when we receive the cashier’s check in the mail.
I won’t subject you to the full details of steps 5-9 but one thing for certain, Coronavirus-19 pandemic is teaching us to remain calm and be patient.
