 At that moment, Joe Blow was walking down the street with a woman, Joe Blow is also an expression of a common man .Now, this john Blow was not walking next to our plain Jane. A plain Jane is a woman who is neither ugly nor pretty. She is simply plain. No, the woman with Joe Blow was a real Shelia, a beautiful woman. Average Joe asked the woman if all banks were closed on Saturday.” no way, Jose" she answered. This a way of saying no, "no way, Jose, many banks are open on Saturday."

 

Average Joe did not know either of these two people from Adam. That is he did not know them at all. But he followed their directions to the nearest bank. When he arrived, he walked to the desk of the chief bank employee. Now, this man was a true jack of all trades, he knew how to do everything. 'I am here to withdraw some money, so I can pay my taxes to Uncle Sam', said Average Joe . Uncle Sam represents the United States government.

 

The banker produced some papers, and told Average Joe to sign his john Hancock at the bottom. A john Hancock is a person 's sign name ,a signature. Historically john's signature was one of the signers of American declaration of independence. Hancock had a beautiful signature and signed his name larger than all the others.
