    New And Improved High-Def Hunger

    | Arizona, USA |

    (A customer whose account had been overdrawn for some time calls our bank.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I am sorry, but you’re card was turned off because your account is currently overdrawn $2,000.”

    Caller: “But I dont think that you understand. When I get paid, I need to buy food for my children.”

    (We are able to reverse some overdraft fees if the situation warrants it. I review the woman’s account to see where her money is going.)

    Me: “Ma’am, you said you buy food for your children after each paycheck?”

    Caller: “Yes! I need money to buy my children something to eat!”

    Me: “So your children eat big-screen TVs and acrylic nails?”

    Caller: “You can see where I’m spending money?!”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. We keep records of where you spend your money.”

    Caller: *click*

    (A customer is withdrawing several hundred dollars in cash.)

    Me: “So, how would you like the cash today?”

    Customer: “Um, I’ll take it all in the largest bills you have.”

    Me: “So hundreds, then?”

    Customer: “Yeah, a few hundreds, and then some 500 and 1000 dollar bills as well.”

    Me: “Oh, the largest denomination we have is hundreds…”

    Customer: “You see, this is exactly the type of thing that makes me not want to bank with you guys!”

    | Boulder, CO, USA |

    Me: “Good afternoon, ma’am, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Don’t call me ma’am, that’s rude! that’s like me calling you stupid!”

    Me: “I apologize… I was just trying to be courteous.”

    Customer: “I want to speak to the manager.”

    Manager: “What seems to be the problem, ma’am?”

    Customer: “You’re stupid, and he’s stupid, and everybody that works here is stupid! I’m leaving!”

    Me: “Have a great day, ma’am!”

    Customer: “I said, I can’t do that. Do it for me.”

    Me: “Sir, unfortunately I cannot do that, for security purposes.”

    Customer: “Why can’t you?”

    Me: “It’s to protect your identity.”

    Customer: “My what? Just fill out the damn slip for me!”

    Me: “Sir, I’m really sorry, but you have to fill out the withdrawal slip. At the very least, I need you to put your name down.”

    Customer: “I can’t do that.”

    Me: “If you pardon my asking sir, why not?”
