Kinda makes you wonder...

So after I finally made it out of the office this afternoon, I had to swing by the bank with a nice large wad of cash and checks that were destined to be deposited (most of which was already earmarked for business expenses).

I get to the drive through teller and the vaguely annoying asian lady [*] insists that I initial the deposit slip because there was a change on it (we ended up getting paid and depositing more cash right before I left.... yes I was really starting to wonder if I was ever making it out at that point). Fine whatever, I initial the slip and she proceeds to spend almost 10 minutes counting the cash (someone paid us with a hundred bucks of ones).

So she counts...

and counts...

and orients all the bills in on direction...

and counts some more....

Then she tells me to initial another part of the deposit slip

Yes, at this point Victor was getting a bit fussy and she gave me this withering look as if to say "what a moron" (which didn't help my mood at all).

Finally she prints out my receipt and sends me on my way.

I look at it and notice a teeny tiny problem....

She stiffed me by about $500.00

What the FUCK?!?!?!

Since I hadn't pulled away, I calmly hit the page button and I got her attention.

I pointed out the problem and her response was (I kid you not):

"Oh, that's a nine? I thought it was a four."

Me: "Uhh... no that's a nine, not a four."

Stupid Teller: "Oh, I'm sorry, let me fix that."

She then proceeds to correct the mistake and correct the deposit.

At this point she looked a lot more sheepish than she had and I couldn't help but notice that the stupid bitch was apparently taking my word for it! How the hell does that work? She spends all this time counting the damn money and yet she still ends up taking my word for it (by way of the deposit slip) for how much I'm depositing?

I can't help but be a little suspicious about her mistake, but I find it a bit hard to believe that she would try something that ballsy (there's a camera on the telller 100% of the time so you'd think it'd be hard to palm $500 in cash), but it seems even more inconceivable that she would really just take my word for how much cash I was depositing.

After that whole mess I had to run some more errands but when I finally made it home I did actually log on and check the account to make sure she had deposited the correct amount.

Fortunately (for her) she had, but sheesh, you'd think they would actually count how much cash I was depositing.


[*] - The reason this lady started to get fussy with me is that I couldn't understand her very heavy accent. I had to ask her to repeat herself several times every time she said something. This is part of the reason why I was getting increasingly cranky with this lady since she was having me do things that were largely pointless (therefore all thos exchanges were pointless as well). Fine whatever, but she gets annoyed because I couldn't understand her? WTF? Now, I don't have a problem with people who have very very thick accents, but I do resent it when they get annoyed at me for not being able to understand them.

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
