An older lady headed to the bank to make a withdrawal.
She handed her bank card to a bank cashier and said,
“I would like to withdraw $10.
The cashier told her,
“For withdrawals less than $100 please use the ATM.”
The old lady wanted to know why …
The cashier returned her bank card and irritably told her,
“These are the rules.
Please leave if there is no other matter.
There is a line of customers behind you.”
The old lady remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the cashier and said,
“Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”
The cashier was astonished when she checked the account balance.
She nodded her head, leaned down and told her,
“You have $500,000 in your account and the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently.
Could you make an appointment and come back tomorrow?”
The old lady then asked how much she could withdraw immediately.
The cashier told her any amount up to $3,000.
“Well, please let me have $3,000 now”.
The cashier then angrily went back to the vault retrieved stacks of $20’s and $10’s and spent the next ten minutes counting out $3,000.
“Is there anything else I can do for you today?”, the teller asked sternly.
The old lady put $10 in her purse and said “yes, I’d like to deposit $2,990 into my account.”
The moral of this tale …
Don’t be difficult with old people, they spent a lifetime learning the skills.
