Further South than I wanna be.
FDIC - Forever Demanding Increasing Capital (this was from my days as an examiner in the 80s.

CAMEL ratings (we didn't have the S back then) stood for
Coffee
Accomodations
Motel
Eats
Libations

The better these were, the higher your rating.

Where the heart is
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands and crystal brooks
With silken lines, and silver hooks.
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
If you would be my POSSLQ.

You live with me, and I with you,
And you will be my POSSLQ.
I'll be your friend and so much more;
That's what a POSSLQ is for.

And everything we will confess;
Yes, even to the IRS.
Some day on what we both may earn,
Perhaps we'll file a joint return.
You'll share my pad, my taxes, joint;
You'll share my life - up to a point!
And that you'll be so glad to do,
Because you'll be my POSSLQ.

I'm happy to be in charge of the "CRAP" at the bank. Community Reinvestment Act Program

I also serve on the CRAC committee, CRA Committee

The committee is comprised of the CRAB's or the CRA Board

And why is it that we can't get any respect?

1. No it's not an original. I remember reading that years ago, and 30 seconds of Googling found it again.

2. I'm not up late, the whole world goes to bed way too early!
