An old woman's letter to a bank has amused social media users.

As reported by Jumble Joy, the 86-year-old lady wrote a highly sarcastic letter to a bank that bounced her check.

She was trying to pay her plumber when the unfortunate incident at the bank happened.

The bank also debited her account $30 as a penalty.

Disappointed with the bank, the old lady made sure to let the bank manager know what she thought.

She wrote that only 'three nanoseconds' must have elapsed between the plumber's depositing of the check and the arrival of the funds needed to honor it in her account.

She said that an automatic monthly transfer of funds from her savings account has been in place for 31 years.

The old woman then went to tell the bank manager of the inconvenience she has experienced dealing with the bank.

'I noticed that whereas I personally attend to your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has recently become,' she wrote.

She told the bank manager that her mortgage and loan repayments will no longer be automatic, but will arrive at the bank, by check, and addressed personally and confidentially to an employee.

The old woman even attached an eight-page Application Contact Status form that an employee chosen by the bank manager must complete.

She demanded several other requirements, such as notarized copies of the chosen employee's medical history and details of his or her financial situation.

She wrote that she will also issue the employee a PIN number that he or she must quote in dealings with her.

'I regret it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,' she added.

She also demanded that the bank chooses from a menu of options on her new voice mail system when calling her.
