Why does 'puts bank_account' return the value of the overwritten to_s method?
I would have expected a different coding for this: 'puts bank_account.to_s'
So why is this not necessary?

By default, Ruby returns an object's class with the object id as a
to_s method unless you specify a to_s method. In this case just calling
puts bank_account will return the method Jason Seifer defined because he redefined it within the class.
