Because I found out my ATM card was expired and never received the
renewal card that was supposedly sent in April, I had to make a face-to-face teller
transaction at the bank today. I wanted to deposit a check someone wrote
me for tickets because I already waited a week for the new ATM card. So on
a cold day in the Sunset, I walked into the bank in my leather jacket with
shades on. I thought I was being good when I found my unused deposit slips
and filled it out in the car. Since I was going straight to the bank I folded it
in my pocket with the check and walked into the bank which was empty. I went
straight to the teller who was away from her window chatting with her co-worker.
With shades still on, I approached the window and slowly removed the folded
papers from my pocket. I noticed she started taking a couple of steps back
away from me. That didn't seem like
good customer service. "Deposit," I blurted and she
returned to take my check and deposit slip. So in hind thought, do you
suppose she thought I was going to hand her a slip telling her it was a holdup?
