AIB insists there must be a SORT or SWIFT code for my bank in Alaska. My bank in Alaska insists it has no such thing. AIB says they SUPPOSE I can try to send money using the routing code that FNBA provided, but they don’t think it’ll work and that they can’t possibly see how the bank can’t have the codes AIB says it should.
I believe that on Thursday, when Ted has the day off, we will go talk to the other banks and find out if they, too, are stymied by a bullheadedness of Minoan proportions, or if switching banks will alleviate this problem. In the meantime, possibly somebody can tell me: does Ireland have the equivilant of cashier’s cheques? A bank check, I mean, something that can be accepted as cash by another bank? Something that I could have drawn and could send to my bank in Alaska that they would cash without the #$(*)& delay that seems to be haunting international finances? Because this is just bullshit. -.-
I discovered somewhat belatedly that signup for classes is from 9am to 1pm, so perhaps I’ll do that Thursday too. I’ve gotten a fair amount of the Chance script done, though.
