Me: “Hi! What can I do for you?”

Customer: “I need to cash my check.”

Me: “Sure! I’ll need to see your ID please.”

Customer: “Why? It’s MY check!”

Me: “I understand, but I’ve never waited on you before. I need to verify that it is your check.”

Customer: “But it’s MY check!”

Me: “But I don’t know that. I don’t know you.”

Customer: “It has my NAME on it!”

Me: “But I don’t know your name. I’ve never waited on you before. I have to make sure that the right person gets their money.”

Customer: “My name is on the check!”

Me: “Ma’am, what if you dropped the check outside and someone else brought it in to cash? Would you want me to cash it for them?”

Customer: “No, because they aren’t me!”

Me: “How would I know that?”

Customer: “Because MY name is on the check!”

Me: *sighs*

Coworker: *trying not to laugh* “Unfortunately that’s not a facility on your account.”

Customer: “Well, it looks like I’ll have to change banks!”

Customer: “I tried to get money out of the cash machine but it won’t give me anything!”

Me: “Well, sir. It seems—”

Customer: “I’m not poor! There’s money in my account! You can check it!”

Me: “Well, sir—”

Customer: “I just want my d*** money! Give it to me!”

Me: “Sir… That’s a library card.”
