Which came first -- chicken salad or egg salad?
A website called thenibble.com says that egg salad was created in the early 1800's.
Checkenscratch-blog.com says the chicken salad, as we know it, was created in 1863.

Thus, the egg salad came before the chicken salad.

Reminds me of the old days we
Make a kid hold his tongue and Then have him say “SHIP”
Than Run and tell his mom and dad they are cussing
“APPLE” is the other word
Had a lot of clean fun with these.

Tank! Right on. I am sure many of us have been there. I used to try to deposit money in my kid's account but, it was such a hassle.

Same issue here. I tried to deposit money into DD's account so she could buy a car; the bank required her to approve the transfer (she emailed her approval very quickly).

It's because of money-laundering regulations, but you'd think they'd be able to permit occasional, small-amount deposits.

I have in the past deposited checks into my SS's account... no questions asked.

BoA required me to show an ID to deposit a small amount of cash (not checks).
Money-laundering rules, they say. That's BS. It's them overreacting to being caught.

Yes, but which came first?
[Redux of a post upthread]

A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette, with a satisfied smile on its face.

The egg, looking a bit pissed off, grabs the sheet, rolls over, and says, "Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question.

I used to have go rounds every time I called to make an extra payment to pay down the balance on our son's college loan. This was in spite of both our son and DH who co-signed having repeatedly authorized them to speak with me. As in they signed and returned the form authorizing it. Every stinking time I would have to go through a song and dance until I got fed up and not very politely told the person I was speaking with that I had made note of their name and the time of the call. That I would be letting someone in charge know he or she had refused to cooperate and accept a payment from someone they had been repeatedly authorized to speak with.

One of DH's major pet peeves is when he gets calls from banks, credit card companies, health care insurers, timeshares,, etc. and they immediately want him to prove who he is. He responds in a don't mess with me tone of voice saying "You called me. What do you want?" If it's a legitimate call he doesn't apologize he just moves forward with the call in pleasant tone of voice. Some people making legitimate calls should be coached to use appropriate business telephone etiquette. As in" Good morning I'm calling to speak with Mr. X. This is xxx from xxx calling about xxx. If you are Mr. X would you please confirm your address/email/date of birth so we can proceed with the call? If this isn't a good time to talk is there a better time to call back?"
