    every month the bank has a 'yard sale' .. and they put the stuff up for sale.

    This is how they recoup your cost.

    So.. hopefully you don't have a gay-a-month dating magazine in your box.. cuz someone's gonna buy it.. find your address on the cover... and... "pay you a visit"

    and since keys can never be replaced... i guess they're just out one deposit box.

    Why would anyone keep a HS Diploma in a safety deposit box?

    just wondering because the payment was due today but they said i can pay tomorrow by noon. but if i dont...i dont want them to just throw it out on the curb like someone being evicted.

    edit: i used to have more valuable shit in there. but i moved it to a different location. so now its just sitting in there.

    Why would you pay for a safe deposit box to keep your high school diploma? Why did you get it in the first place?

    good luck on the ass-raping you're gonna get on your taxes from that.


    Series EE bond Interest is added to the bond monthly and paid when the holder cashes the bond. They are designed to reach face value in approximately 17 years, although an investor can hold them for up to 30 years and continue to accrue interest. For bonds issued before May 2005 the rate of interest is recomputed every six months at 90% of the average five-year Treasury yield for the preceding six months.

    You'll probably get charged for not closing it properly. If you don't give your keys back, they have to drill the lock out and will charge you for it.

    Seriously. I don't think I have mine. I have my U diploma somewhere, but noone has ever asked to see it, they just take my word for it. Hey, I'm not a fake.

    Yep...and it's MUCH cheaper to just pay the rent for the safety deposit box than it is to pay for the drilling and replacement of the locks.
