Trying To Take Account Of What Just Happened

, , , | Right | May 13, 2020

I have just stepped in line at my local bank. There are two people at the two open windows and two people in line ahead of me. One of the tellers is at another window with her sign up saying, “Next Window Please.” She looks like she’s pretty busy, running back and forth getting papers and envelopes.

The man in front of me is staring at her, arms crossed and toe tapping, mumbling to himself.

Customer: “C’mon, we don’t have all freaking day!”

After a moment or two, not even a full minute of me being in line, the man throws up his arms and shouts.

Customer: “Hasn’t anyone here ever heard of ‘customer service’?! Why can you help me?! FINE! You know what?! Just close my account!”

The man starts storming out the door, nearly knocking me over. The manager, whose office is right near the exit, pokes his head out to see what the commotion is. Everyone is just staring.

Manager: “What seems to be the problem, sir?”

Customer: “What do you care?! She wouldn’t help me!”

He points to the teller at the closed window.

Manager: “Well, I—”

Customer: “Whatever! Just close my account!”

He pulls out a slip of paper and writes something down.

Customer: “Here’s my name; close my account. GOOD BYE!”

The man stormed out, leaving everyone very confused as to what just happened.
