I was rather taken aback today to receive two large his and her’s parcels; with a note from the press office at Lloyds TSB on them. As many will know we’re in the midst of the bank charges campaign; and the I fought the Lloyds song in which I proudly feature is a recent chart hit. Of course the song isn’t deliberately targeting Lloyds, it’s about all banks, it just happened to be the bank which the song’s author was with; yet in the current climate to be sent a gift was a bit of a shock.
When I opened it, I realised it was to congratulate the MSF and I on our engagement. Two bright pink personalized beach towels (with a special elasticated bit so they can go round a sun lounger) one with ‘Money Saving Groom’ and the other ‘Money Saving Bride’ on it. It seems a little romance goes a long way even in the banking world.
Thanks to all at the Lloyds press office
