Well…. I went to PNC today. I got a female teller (but that really is irrelevant. Some of the dumbest bankers I have ever seen have been male. The smartest banker was actually female…. not this one. 🙂 )…. I must have gotten my $50 stacks mixed up? I also only count them once because my count is irrelevant honestly. So basically my short stack gets mixed with a $50 stack.
So the lady says basically…. “are all these straped ones supposed to be $100?” I say “yes…. so one is short?” She says “yes $83″….. now all old people know exactly what happened next. 🙂 But the problem is she is a bank teller. She needs to figure out the number to tell me…. She also selected NOT to use a calculator! Let me just say…. I could physically hear her brain thinking about it! It made her face also turn red.
Quick note…. for anyone who can not add and subtract in your head. If someone puts money down and believes they have the correct number (I am just being nice…. of course it was correct. 🙂 )…. count what they have and do not start making suggestions! Like $27, $14 and she might have gotten to $17 after using her computer? But people my age (who grew up with digital calculators) or younger…. can not add or substrate in their head. Only old people…. plus nerds like me I guess? 🙂
Quick…. here is a test. What is 25% off $2.00? Ask someone else…. watch. Then laugh inside…. when they get it wrong or just ignore you completely. LOL 🙂
