Difference between real life and movies

We've shared a safe deposit box with my mother for several years. It's at her South Hill bank branch and has contained only the originals of my parents' will and my power of attorney paperwork. Until today, that is.

We went by this afternoon and put a few items in it. And I found myself wondering.

How many people who access a safe deposit box think about Matt Damon in the first Jason Bourne movie? You know, the scene where the amnesia-plagued operative opens a safe deposit box at a bank in Switzerland and discovers multiple passports with his picture, thick stacks of various international currencies and a gun.

Alas, when I opened ours, it contained just the will and POA.

I guess that means I don't have amnesia.
