Just had a gentle reminder at the office of the danger of joint ownership of real or personal property.  You’ll recall that I posted previously on the topic.

Please be very careful with this means of owning property.  You’re giving stuff to other people.  It doesn’t really matter what you intend to happen with that stuff.  What matters is what you’ve done.

And don’t help someone put your name on a bank account, particularly if he or she has some form of dementia.  It just looks like you’re coercing them–even if your intentions are good.

Carry on but not before some unusual photos.  Not my best work–just go with it.

    Reminds me of the scene towards the end of Casino when Sharon Stone takes all that money out of the safety deposit box and Rothstein (DeNiro) can’t do anything about it because she’s joint on the account too. (Of course JTWROS status doesn’t stop the feds from pulling her over and seizing the canvas bag of cash though.)

    Very good movie. Little Joe Pesci was great …
