I learned that the bank had a tuition reimbursement benefit, so I headed down to the University of
Miami and enrolled into the School of Business.
Tuition at the University was steep, so to pay for it, I had gone downstairs at the Bank and had gotten myself a student
loan, planning on paying it off via tuition reimbursement right after I passed my two classes – one at lunch and one after
work. I learned about the program quite late in the cycle, and the loan officer gave me the forms and told me he would
pick them up from me that evening, when I had gotten home and filled everything out. Ms. Totally Naïve here dutifully
filled out everything and waited for the loan officer. He arrived at maybe 7 pm or so, and I had the papers on the kitchen
counter. There was one place I had forgotten to sign, however, and I went into the bedroom, where my little decoupage
desk sat, to fetch a pen. By the time I found one and came back to the living room, that loan officer was wearing nothing
but his socks. I didn’t try to get past him – I ducked into the kitchen and went out through the louver door, sitting outside
waiting for that man to dress himself. He kept calling through the open windows that he would “transport me into the arms
of paradise.” I just sat outside until he left.
