two short anecdotes

my old bank recently sent me a letter, asking whether i’m still a student. if i didn’t send them a confirmation, they would have to change my “free” student bank account into a regular one, it said.
i had switched banks (and suspended my account there) more than a year ago.

totally unrelated:
i’m currently in the market for a waistcoat.
when i asked at one store, the salesman spoke very slowly, trying to get his answer to not sound rude. he ended up telling me (in the nicest way he could) that, since nobody under the age of 50 is wearing that anymore, they don’t stock that kind of clothing.
the general reaction was similar at several stores – and yet, there are a few stores that do still sell waistcoats…
