Well, this was never going to be easy. Last week we opened an account with CaixaBank in Spain – as the performance of our existing bank had been less than stellar. We filled in all the forms, got the App and were promised by the one English-speaking member of staff (after waiting for half the morning) that our cards would be ready on Tuesday.
Of course we went in on Tuesday and they WEREN’T ready. She offered to send an email when they were in. Maureen then got a TEXT to say the cards were in – as we’re also collecting for friends we really needed her to be there. Yesterday we popped by the bank – no sign of her and we decided to make an early start this morning.
Not there. We popped into one of the local cafes for cafe-con-leche – a lovely little place one of who’s specialities is pastry effigies of Bob Spongepants!
