Actually both my father and mother were substitutes for a while and when school was not in session I would ride the route with them.... I wonder how many rules that broke? This was a truly rural route all through the county and actually quite fun.... often folks would meet you out at their mail box and buy stamps or even a money order and put in in the mail.

My Granddad was the first rural mail carrier in this community. Before that folks just picked up mail at the train depot or the general store. In the 1950's Dad was the Postmaster, Grandad was a rural carrier, and 2 of my Uncles were the substitute carriers--sort of a family affair. Between 1916 and 2009 there was only a short period that one of our 3 generations was not working in an area Post Office.
I rode many trips around the route in the jump seat of Grandad's old Model A Ford.

.....Big government has proposed rule that would require banks, credit unions and other cash transaction accounts to report any transaction of $600 in a year to the IRS.
Since I have accounts in two locations (a credit union and a bank) I could keep someone busy, wondering what I was up to, by transferring $601.00 from one to the other once each month. I don't see that proposal making much headway.

Our banks don't want change in rolls. They have to break them open and dump them into a counting machine. Now I just hand them a bag. If you are a customer there is no charge. I know if you buy a car and use some cash over a certain amount they have to fill out a special form for the government.

My bank weighs the rolls. Now I imagine if there were any older coins in there they might weigh more.

Go the the USPS and try to get a MO for more than $3000 and you’ll get the same treatment.

Needed a document notarized. Went to credit union. Young lady needed IDs and TWO witnesses as to our ID???

A bit later I went to a teller, gave her my acct # and withdrew 2 grand w/ NO ID???

I made sure that both the teller and notary 'clerk' knew I thought that was a little odd.

They say "an armed society is a polite society."

In my experience, "a redneck society is a polite society." The more rural people are, the nicer they are.

We use the local credit union.

Recently we had to have a document notarized. I needed to provide ID AND 2 witnesses that would say we are who we say we are!!!

After the document was notarized I stepped out of an office to a tellers window and withdrew $2500. and no questions asked--NO ID requested!! amazing.

Here in anti-gun Illinois it is perfectly legal for me to carry in a bank, unless the bank itself has decided to ban guns. I rarely go to the bank, but likely will be going today to pick up coin rolls. I have a container full to the brim, and have been told that neither of the banks I deal with will take unrolled coins. I refuse to pay 11% at the coin machine in my supermarket. But when I go to the bank I will be armed in case a thief tries to steal the paper rolls before I get home to use them.

The last time I took coin rolls to the bank, they were all broken open and the coins dumped into an automatic sorter.

I ended up rolling over $250 worth of coins and bringing them back to my bank for a deposit. Bank services are not what they used to be.
