    Sorry,, can't resist:

    I saw her sitting in the rain
    Raindrops falling on her
    She didn't seem to care
    She sat there and smiled at me

    Then I knew (I knew... I knew... I knew... I knew)
    She could make me happy (happy... happy)
    (She could make me very happy)
    Flowers in her hair (in her hair)
    Flowers everywhere (everywhere)

    (I love the flower girl)
    Oh I don't know just why; she simply caught my eye
    (I love the flower girl)
    She seemed so sweet and kind; she crept into my mind
    (To my mind... to my mind)

    I knew I had to say hello (hello... hello)
    She smiled up at me
    And she took my hand and we walked through the park alone

    And I knew (I knew... I knew... I knew... I knew)
    She had made me happy (happy... happy)
    (She had made me very happy)
    Flowers in her hair (in her hair)
    Flowers everywhere (everywhere)

    (I love the flower girl)
    Oh I don't know just why; she simply caught my eye
    (I love the flower girl)
    She seemed so sweet and kind; she crept into my mind
    (To my mind ... to my mind)

    Suddenly, the sun broke through
    (See the sun)
    I turned around she was gone
    (Where did she go)
    And all I had left was one little flower in my hand

    But I knew (I knew... I knew... I knew... I knew)
    She had made me happy (happy... happy)
    (She had made me very happy)
    Flowers in her hair (in her hair)
    Flowers everywhere (everywhere)

    (I love the flower girl)
    Was she reality or just a dream to me
    (I love the flower girl)
    Her love showed me the way to find a sunny day
    (Sunny day... sunny day... sunny day)

    (I love the flower girl)
    Was she reality or just a dream to me

    Here's a fun fact. Credit unions have employees too.

    You’re a conservative opposed to competition – strange.

    And don’t rightists believe in a kind of ‘capitalistic Darwinism,’ the strong survive and the weak perish – perhaps the banks are like the dinosaurs, it’s time for them to go.

    In any event the bank employees need only go to work for the credit unions, it looks as if the latter will need the help.

    I'm in a credit union and a non-profit electric co-op and they are the two best deals I get of all the shit I have to buy.

    Some credit unions are just as bad. I was a member of one once.

    My employer banks with a for-profit. I used to cash my check at the one across the street from where I work, and then they came out with a policy that if you didn't have an account there, they were going to charge you $5 to cash your check there. A check drawn on THEIR bank!
