So I went to the bank today...

.to set up an account for my dad, who was NOT with me, and I walk to the counter and tell the lady.."I need to set up an account for my dad"

She asks: "Is he with you?"

Me: (looking around to see if my dad is with me) "Nope, I don't see him here" *evil grin*

She asks: "well what kind of an account is it that you are wanting to open?"

I say "checking"

She: " Does he already have an account here?"

Me: "ummm no, if he did I would not have to open one for him" *gives her a wt* look*

She is dumbfounded. I mean totally dumbfounded. She didn't know what to say or what to do...

Me: "Does it help you that I have power of attorney?" (as I hold the papers in my hand)

She: "Do you have your papers with you?"

Me: "Is there someone else I can speak to????"



OK, I have never in my 11 years of taking care of my father's business have someone so stupid to deal with!! I mean to ask me if my dad was there? She could see I was the only person in the darn bank at the time.

Yep, this is a true story. Happened today. Now I am done ranting about it.

lol!

I remember going to the bank and putting in a large sum of cash once and the lady asked me "where did all this come from"

Me jokingly- "I robbed a bank".... She smiles

She keeps counting the money and then says "Where did you get all this"

Me - "I robbed a bank"... She looked at me very seriously

She then proceeds to type the amount into the system so as to place it in my account and then the daft bint says "So where did all this money come from!!!"

Me looking rather pi$$ed off at all her questioning "I...... Oh whats the bloody use!!!!" and just walked out.

Kristy: Had a similar issue the other day...
I walked in with $500 I wanted changed into specific denominations for a float. Hada sheet of paper with the denomination listings and everything.
"Would you like that taken from your account sir?" - "Err, no, I just gave it to you in $50s"
"OH, so it's a deposit?" - "No!, I want it changed to what's on the sheet"
"OHHH, I thought that was the deposit slip... I was going to say, you've got the figures all wrong, because you handed me $50s" - *Blank stare... Face palm* "Can I maybe talk to someone else?"

g10: Actually, that's a REALLY dumb thing to say to a bank clerk, and there's a good chance your account's been flagged. If they have suspicion that you have committed, or are going to commit, a criminal activity, they have to report it to the authorities.
If you want to give a shenanigans answer, at least give one that's not going to upset them in a professional capacity, like "I sell cigarettes and alcohol to minors".

Ehm, I don't think so as there were other staff that work there that know me as I have been there for about 20 years and this happened a long time back

I think they got that little magic word called 'humour'

g10: Wait... you actually get that thing they talk about in Consumer History 203? What was it called... Ummm... "Kusmer Cervix" I think...
I've been banking at the same damn branch for 5 years. I know I stand out because I usually come in in my biker jacket, where as most of the other peopel in the area are suits or pensioners, and I've only had one teller recognise me... And that's only because he was trying to pick me up!!

LOL Do you have papers with you. That's great. I don't think you need to open an account there.
