So I marched into Banco de Oro, big commercial and universal bank, on Katipunan, yesterday afternoon.
I approached the staffers manning the customers service counter, asking them, a guy and a gal, about their time deposit products -- acting brave and frank to tell them that I want big interest rates, like that offered by some rural banks: 20% p.a., tax exempt, pdic insured, monthly interest payable.
The told me with a straight face that it's possible. Did I hear that right?. Yes, they said it's possible.
So I asked immediately, "You mean I can do it right now here at this very moment?"
"Sir, you have to go to our main office, at Ortigas," they informed me with a sweet smile.
Okay, next time I am in that Ortigas area during office days and hours, I will drop in at the main office of BDO there. And also why not just try all the big secure longlasting banks like BPI, next time I am in banks row on Ayala Avenue.
First, of course, I have to get myself a new barong or a new suit, and a pair impressive rich looking shoes, and practice a very vip mien and posture and absolutely accent.
