I don't mind being asked for my i.d. at the bank when I cash a check. Most of the time, you don't see the same teller every week, but today was a bit silly.I presented my check, written on my checking account, was asked for my i.d., then, asked if I had an account with them.  Huh?

The next part was even more fun, as I presented a check written to my wife, which she had signed, and I signed as well. The teller asked "Who's Ginger?" 'My wife" I replied (her name is on our account, too).  She then proceeded to bring up the original signature card on file to compare that signature with the one on the back of the check.

Finally satisfied, the check was cashed and on I was on my way back to work.  I still think that was a bit much!
