    In Creepiness And In Health

    | Portland, OR, USA |

    (Note: This customer is a little odd and makes the entire staff nervous when he comes in.)

    Me: “Okay, here’s your receipt. Is there anything else I can do for you?”

    Customer: “You could marry me…”

    Me: *awkwardly laughs*

    Coworker: “Well, is there anything else you need from me today?”

    Customer, to my coworker: “You could pay for our honeymoon.”

    (Suddenly, the customer turns to me.)

    Customer, to me: “Okay, I’m just kidding. But I wasn’t kidding about you.”

    Quarter Of A Dollar, Quarter Of A Brain

    Customer: *placing coin in front of me* “This is a dollar.”

    Me: “That’s a quarter.”

    Customer: “Right, a quarter dollar.”

    Me: “Yes, a quarter dollar.”

    Customer: “So which is it, a quarter or a dollar?”

    Me: “It’s a quarter.”

    Customer: “Then why does it say quarter dollar?”

    Me: “Because it’s a quarter of a dollar.”

    Customer: *uproarious laughter*

    The Bank Appreciates Your Donation, Part 2

    | Shoreview, MN, USA | Money

    (I work in the personnel assistance phone queue. Basically, it means I take escalated calls from angry customers.)

    Customer: “My deposit is missing.”

    Me: “Okay, was it a branch deposit or an ATM deposit?”

    Customer: “I went through the drive-through at your bank branch and made my deposit. It’s not in my flipping account yet and I need it now!”

    Me: “Okay, I’d be happy to take a look at it. What’s your account number?”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t have an account with your bank…”

    Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind, Part 2

    | Ohio, USA | Money

    (This customer’s account has been overdrawn for over a month. This is due to several ATM withdrawals when she didn’t have the money in her account.)

    Customer: “You need to refund these overdraft fees because you never notified me that I was overdrawn.”

    Me: “According to the notes on your account, you called us every time before you made a withdrawal. Every time, a rep told you that you’d get a fee if you didn’t make a deposit to cover it the following day.”

    Customer: “Nope, you never informed me of any fees. Yeah, I took $500 I didn’t have in the account, but I shouldn’t get fees because you never notified me of any fees. Refund them now!”

    Me: “We also called you every day over the past month. We sent you a text and email alert every day. We also sent you 10 letters letting you know that your account is overdrawn. You will continue to get fees until you deposit enough money to cover the negative balance.”

    Customer: “I throw away all my mail from you because I think it’s junk. I don’t check my email and I ignore your texts, so it’s not my fault that I didn’t know I was getting fees. Refund them now, because I wasn’t notified of the fees!”

    Me: “Yeah, no. That’s not going to happen.”

    Customer: “But you never notified me!”
