(I am a bank teller. I live in a small city and each summer we hold a fair. My bank is the largest in the city so each summer we sell tickets for the fair, which brings us a range of customers we do not usually interact with. My teller directly faces the front door)

Me: Hi, I can help you here!

3 girls approach my teller. One has a rat perched on her shoulder. They are speaking a slavic language with each other

As I continue with their transaction I cannot help but be distracted with this rat. The 3 girls think nothing of it and chatter on. The rat is crawling around the girls shoulders, at one point is crawled down her chest under her shirt and later appeared at her neck. This rat was about the size of a large potato.

I fumble through the basic transaction.

Me: Okay, here you are. Have a lovely day!

(then I turn to my coworker)

Me: Did you notice that rat?!

Coworker: *laughs* you were so distracted with it! (He obvisouly also thought nothing about the rat that just strolled into the largest bank in the city perched on a young girl shoulder).

I am still in disbelief!
