    Did this happen in the UK? I note the use of the word 'check' rather than 'cheque' so I wondered ...

    You have messed up here... those 4 bits i have highlighted are a very obvious attempt of you trying to get into "character" and overdoing it!. If you had written those parts normally then most people probably wouldn't have questioned your authenticity but it makes it so obvious :rotfl:
    Some do really [STRIKE]write[/STRIKE] rite that way these days. She got a lot to learn still, as she forgot to sprinkle in a dose of 'would of' and 'should of'.

    Good point. There used to be a Nationwide Bank in the US, too. It's stopped trading though, and there isn't a "llydes" [sic] in the US. Not that there's one of these here, either :rotfl: but she also mentions TSB and Santander. Definitely UK, then.

    It might be a co-incidence, but Accou3 made a re-appearance yesterday, and they always seem to be accompanied by another unlikely poster.

    And who would have thought the collective noun for 'shoulders' was a 'wight'. Of course, we all know the collective noun for bankers is a wunch.

    I may be being thick, but if someone could tranlate a wight of shoulders I would appreciate it. It's got me stumped.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    I read it as 'weight off shoulders'?

    They missed the trick of using a 3 dot ellipses instead of full stops though - that's often a troll flag.

    When you do this [...] to indicate that there was some additional content removed. For example, if I wanted to selectively quote sections from a long post, I'd use it where content was deleted for brevity.

    I don't know if it's the same person, but a lot of new posters with preposterous tales will write in short bursts ..... and use several periods ...... Instead of one and a capital letter to indicate sentences.
