    This Customer Has A Tuna Problems

    | Bellingham, WA, USA | Bizarre, Money

    (I’m a teller at a bank. A young customer comes up to my window.)

    Customer: “I’d like to withdraw $20.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, it looks like your available balance is $10. Would you like to withdraw that amount?”

    Customer: “No. I want to withdraw $20.”

    Me: “I’m sorry; I can only withdraw the $10 you have available.”

    Customer: “But I want $20!”

    Me: “I can’t give you more money than you have in your account.”

    Customer: “Well at least it’s not a Nazi-controlled fish world where it’s ‘hail tuna, only what the tuna says!.'”

    (The customer waits for me to reply, but I have no idea if this is some pop culture reference.)

    Me: “…no. At least it’s not like that…”

    Customer: “I’ll take the $10.”

    (The customer leaves happily, and I never find any info on her fish world. I assume it is original, as the next week she tells me I would be ‘sweeter if I was made out of silver.’)
