Today was an interesting day.
That makes it sound too positive. I’m not sure what adjective to call the day, so we’ll just leave it there.
If you’ve read my bio you’ll know that I work at a bank. One of the branches that a close friend manages was robbed today. This is the second time this year that it’s been robbed. The good news is that there wasn’t a weapon this time. The thing that people don’t realize about banks is sometimes there’s no money. The way our bank runs is everything is on lock down, and we use Live Bankers–essentially you Skype with a teller that is in Indianapolis and dispenses your money out of a time locked unit. The same is true for the ONE teller drawer. So this moronic lady committed a felony just to not get enough money to pay rent. Stupid. At least do your research, criminals!
So, I went over to the branch to help with post-robbery items and the branch is OBVIOUSLY closed. There’s a sign on the door noting an emergency closing and lists the closest branches they can visit. Now remember that we have these Live Bankers–which there’s one in the drive-thru as well. So then normal day-to-day customers would park and walk up to the door and start just jerking on it, not bothering to read the TWO signs. Then someone them would just stand there peering in. What the hell? Are you that much of an idiot that you wouldn’t then read the sign if the doors were locked? Didn’t the FIVE police cars surrounding the bank deter you? People are dumb.
I am very easily annoyed with people and can become incredibly impatient and agitated. When I got home I had to sleep. The emotional roller coaster of starting my day with an audit that’s stressful, to the robbery which had me worried, to finding out everyone was OK so I was relieved, then on to annoyed by the folks yanking on doors, to pissed by the guy who pulled out in front of me then slammed on his breaks when I honked at him, to just exhausted. Tomorrow is another full day for me, hopefully it will be uneventful. Yeesh, I need to take a chill pill–like literally–I should go take some drugs.
