We’ll Happily Bank With You If You’ll Share!

A winter storm has just come through. However, corporate refuses to let us close, as it’s not “severe enough.” Only a few of us are working: two part-time tellers, the branch manager, and me (a banker). It’s completely dead. The manager is in her office. The tellers and I are sitting around talking. [Coworker #2] is a great cook and often brings food in for the branch.

Coworker #1: “Anyone have a pack of cards?”

Me: “We used to, but I don’t know if they’re still here. You can look if you want.”

He gets up and starts digging through drawers.

Coworker #2: “We need snacks. I knew I should’ve brought the rest of the guacamole in.”

Me: “Made another batch?”

Coworker #2: “Yep, and I’ve got a ton left over.”

[Coworker #1] drops everything and turns around.

Coworker #1: “You made guac and you didn’t share?!”

Coworker #2: “And pico de gallo! I was on a roll yesterday.”

Coworker #1:Stop. Now I’m hungry.”

Coworker #2: “I can run home and grab it. Looks like the salt trucks went through. [My Name], is that okay?”

Me: “Go for it. We’ll cover for you.”

She comes back with a giant container of guacamole, another container of pico de gallo, and a huge bag of tortilla chips. About ten minutes later, the branch manager emerges. We stop eating and try to shove our plates out of sight, as corporate has told the managers to not let people eat at their workstations.

Manager: “Hey! Where did the food come from?!”

Coworker #2: “I made guac and pico!”

Manager: “I was gonna offer to order a pizza, but that’s way better. Did you bring extra?”

We snacked for the rest of the day.
