This Edward Jones guy has space issues
This guy's Edward Jones broker knew that one of his clients was going to visit a prospective college with his daughter.
Not only that, but he also knows there's a list of colleges they are considering.*
Did Dad really call his broker from campus to ask if it's ok if he's considering sending his daughter to a particular college? Seriously?
I can so relate to this. The other day I called by Voya broker, who used to be my ING broker and before that was my Edward Jones broker- to sheepishly suggest to her that I was strongly considering ordering takeout at a chinese restaurant. I just kind of wanted reassurance that I wasn't getting in over my head concerning my currrent retirement fund status.
She told me to put the menu down and walk out.
*Once Dad replied "you remembered that, too" I thought there's no way this call ends without Dad telling his broker "love you" before hanging up.
