  • Amy and Karen are at the donut shop when Amy realizes Karen doesn't have a bank account.

  • Okay, wait. So you're telling me that you are an adult and you don't have a bank account?

  • How do you get anything done without a bank account?

  • I never really needed one. I always use cash.

  • Okay, well, I am going to take you to the bank right now and we are going to get you a checking account.

  • But wait. Before we go in, to open up a bank account, what do you think I need?

  • Wow, that's a really good question. Umm...I think you are going to need a driver's license

  • and some cash, maybe about 200 bucks.

  • Okay, that's fine. I've got that.

  • So, I'll just wait right over here while you open your account.

  • Good morning. I understand you want to open a checking account. I can help you do that.

  • Well, I have 500 dollars in cash, a check from my employer and photo identification, is that enough to get started?

  • Okay. This all looks very good.

  • Now I am going to show my supervisor. If you don't mind waiting for about 5 minutes,

  • I'll be right with you.

  • Okay, he said everything looks really good.

  • Umm...but I'm wondering...do you think I'm gonna get an ATM card?

  • So that I can withdraw money from the automatic teller machine?

  • Oh yeah. Absolutely! You know they want you to be able to get your money.

  • So you can spend it!

  • Okay, great. So when I get my ATM card, I can take us both out for coffee and donuts!
