Well That Conversation Went South

, , | Right | January 25, 2019

(I’m from the South, and I do have an accent. I currently live in the Midwest. Most people who notice just ask what part of the South I’m from.)

Me: “Hi, what can I help you with today?”

Customer: *in a normal voice* “Withdraw $50 from my account.”

Me: “Certainly, and how would you like that back?”

Customer: *smirking, in an exaggerated Southern accent* “Well, I’ll just take two $20s and a $10, yee-haw!”

(I make eye contact and raise an eyebrow at him. He stops smirking and looks away.)

Me: *in the most Southern drawl I can muster* “And I’ve got $20, $40, $50. Is there anything else I can help y’all with?”

Customer: *meekly* “No. Thank you, young lady.”

(He hustles out of the branch. One of my coworkers snorts and starts laughing.)
