I withdrew some money from my new bank last week -- usually I use the ATM, but I needed a pair of tens, not a twenty, so I went through the drive through.
As usual, my cash showed up in one of those little paper envelopes they use. A waste of paper for something that's just going to get thrown away or at best recycled, but I get why they don't want to send cash through the tubes without something
to hold it.
It still kinda annoys me. I don't have a brilliant idea for a better option, but one always hopes, you know?
And then I got a lovely surprise:
Yep, it's got a grocery list printed on the other side. With little checkboxes to warm my obsessive heart. Of course I immediately used it.
It'll still get recycled -- and if I hadn't gotten it I'd've reused another piece of paper instead of something new -- but still? I'm pretty pleased. Someone had that brilliant idea for me, and they went and did
something with it, and that's exactly what the world needs.
Kudos to Knoxville TVA Credit Union! It's a good step in the right direction.
