Three Customers

In the world of banking, the people on the front lines of the industry are known as tellers. These are the people who are expected to help customers with all of their day to day banking needs. It is often a thankless and miserable position to hold. These are their stories. These are their legends…

Today I give you a tale of three customers.

1 – My very first customer of the morning shared my last name. We shared a good laugh about that. After she left I thought that I should have asked if I could call her “Aunt Delores”. Oh, hindsight.

2 – We had our share of crazy customers. They were the ones who you kind of wanted to hide from when you saw them pull into the parking lot. Normally, they weren’t really crazy. And then there was William Shakespeare. I crap you not, this guy’s name was William Shakespeare. He must have walked into our branch five times in one day. Each time he came in, I’m not too sure he remembered that he had already spoken to any of us. He was telling all sorts of stories, ranging from how the government was spying on his bank account to his idyllic picnic lunch that he had with one Marilyn Monroe. That picnic, by the way, happened the previous day around lunchtime. Yeah. Crazy.Three Customers - Crazy3 – Finally, I feel I should tell you about a customer that was flirting with me. At least, I think she was flirting with me. She wasn’t crazy. She wasn’t strange. In fact, she had no business flirting with the likes of me (if she was, in fact, flirting with me). She was all kinds of out of my league. I mean, let’s put aside the fact that she was gorgeous. At the age of 31, she owned her own very successful business. So that meant that she was physically and economically out of my league. I had no idea that she was flirting with me. Nor was I aware that I was flirting back, for that matter. It took another customer inside the lobby to point it out to me. So what do you think were the odds of a poor bank teller with no real clue where his life was headed making it with a beautiful, successful entrepreneur? Slim… But this is not the last time you’ll hear about the Girl in the White SUV. Stay tuned…
