Nautical or maritime words are everywhere. Even the word ‘bank’ literally means a river bank. Ships pull up to the bank. They assume I’m a master/mister of a vessel and banked at the river.
I expect I need to find a ‘savings and loan’ or a ‘safe deposit’ company, though even the word deposit/depose is suspicious. I’ll take either over a bank for now.
If thou has been following along, ‘they’ are assuming everything is a maritime matter possibly because the USA has jurisdiction over commerce, meaning that which is on the water. That ‘Mer’ in commerce means sea in French.
