I had to make a rare trip to the bank the other day to take care of some business regarding my bank account.
- It seemed there had been some fraud on my debit card, and in order to get a temporary one, I had to visit the bank in person.
That is odd these days with everything being online. Anyway, when I arrived at the bank they were pretty empty, thankfully. So I was able to get right to the bank teller and explain my issue and what I needed. I overheard the bank teller before hand talking to a coworker about the high cost of her energy bills, and how she was able to bring them down. It had everything to do with the way she heated and cooled her home. The bank teller was talking about not using her central heating and air conditioning system as much, and replacing it with a ductless mini split air conditioning unit, and a few space heaters in the Winter. I also heard her saying that she still runs the central heating and air conditioning system at night when she is sleeping sometimes. It all depends on how hot or cold it is. Just by listening to this conversation I learned a lot! And, it made me think that I need to do the same thing at my house! Before I got to my business, I told her that I overheard the conversation about the energy saving tips with her heating and air conditioning system. I thanked her for those energy saving tips. She smiled and then went on to get my temporary debit card.
