I couldn't get into Selma Blair until I read an interview with her and found that she's cool as hell. Now I'm more attracted to her physically as well as otherwise. Weird how that works.
I looooove Cholula, but I'll agree it's one of the hotter ones. But the taste is amazing, it's not like any hot sauce out there. Tapatio has some of the best aspects of Cholula, but hotter. Louisiana Hot Sauce is still classic. Cock sauce is good, but very specific, not as versatile as the others. Frank's Red Hot, Texas Pete, and all the other hot sauces for people who don't like hot sauce will do in a pinch. Could never quite get into Tabasco, but I'm not sure why. ...
That's only movies. I assure you, we think it's as weird as you do. I'm not sure where conventions like that come from, but I'm even more baffled by why people think they have to use them. People in movies don't say hello when they answer the phone, either! They just pick up the phone, and the person on the other end intuits that the person they're calling has picked up, and starts talking!

I'm learning a lot from this thread.
My wife worked for a bank for a while, and she said you would be SHOCKED how often this sort of thing happens. (Sorry, no good tips, she only worked there briefly as a temp.) All I can say is that the squeaky wheel etc. Definitely talk to the branch manager, and anyone else you can get to. Call every day until it's sorted out. Don't let them ignore you. Be as polite as you can muster, but very firmly let them know that you should not be kept from accessing YOUR money...
