All my little Presby friends will recognize that BOP means Board of Pensions. I think we should send an overture to the 2008 General Assembly in California to change it to 'Brain off Premises'.
I have so many examples of dumb moves made on our family's accounts by the BOP. (One of my favorites -- did you know I have twin daughters with the same birth date and social security numbers? Neither did I, until the BOP informed me of this miracle).
Yesterday I received an invoice from the BOP -- for 5 cents. Now how much did it costs to process a 5 cent invoice? I figure it will cost me at least a dollar -- between the check and the postage -- to pay my 5 cent bill. I am sorely tempted to tape a nickel in the envelope and send it COD.
No wonder the dues are so high.
