Looking Ugly at the Bank




Anyways......


            So I go to the drive-thru ATM at my bank and of course the machine is out of order...It's always out of order.


I drive around to the front and try to use the ATM just inside the bank.


I punch in my pin number


      politely ask for 40.00


           The ATM says "Sure Sweetie" (not really, but wouldn't it be cool if it did?)


               I prepare for it to hand over forty dollars


                            I wait


                            And wait


Then it tells me "Transaction complete, thank you for stopping by and see ya later"


Whoa!



Wheres the doe ray me?

                The moola?

                   El Dinero?


OK, time to go Old school and actually enter the bank and stand on line


Now I have to write that I was not looking my normal cute self
                           
                                     source 






I looked more like this
                         
                                   source



It was the first day of school for the kids. I had made sure the kids looked great but I in turn looked like disheveled mess. It was supposed to be a quick errand...to get my money and go... I had no intentions of interacting with ...people...




Well dressed, perky, young people
                
                              source




I waited on line and The teller confirmed my fears "Yes, Mam (Ugh when did I become a Mam?) The computer shows that $40 was indeed taken out of your account."


"But where is it?" I ask


"It says you took it out." she answers


"But I don't have it." I insist


"The computer does say that you took out the money."
                                  She's looking at me like I'm
                                               
                                                               source


"Tell the computer it's a big fat honking liar!" I say. OK, I am paraphrasing here but you get the gist.


Yada Yada Yada she states again what the computer displays and YadaYada Yada "You'll have to wait to speak to another person."



So I sit.


Opposite me is a lady dressed in a business outfit looking like she was on her way to a very important job.
               
                       source



Then on the other side of me there was a couple that seemed like they were newly married...so new that she probably still shaves her legs often and wears cute nighties to bed 
                     
                                     source






Then there was me
                
                                          source



                     Pitiful, disheveled ME





Again, when I was able to explain to the Representative my plight ...he looked at me as if I may have been lying


We both walked over to the ATM machine and of course the machine did indeed behave.


Which made him look at me incredulously, like I was
                                                  
                                                                    source




So now I have to wait until Thursday to see if there is a discrepancy when they do the ATM count.


Which leads me to think that had I looked a bit more "put together" perhaps they would have helped a bit more; and in turn I would have had the $40 credited right then and there.




All I know Is that the next time I go to the bank I will be more prepared
                                                    
                                                                             
                                          



                                   Wha? too much?

  4. I'm glad your sense of humor is intact. I'm afraid I would not have been so nice. It was their error, not yours. I would have insisted they check the drawers for the drive through right then and there. You are too nice. That is a good thing. I'm probably not as nice.

    1. Thanks Sally, I could just kick myself for not staying and insisting they fix it. Tomorrow I will find out. Hopefully they won't give me the run around.

  5. I wonder why they can't back up the cameras and look at them. You always give a humorous presentation.
