    i used to do cust service for a bank, and i swear i talked to half of those people.
    One time this lady called in and told me "I want my purse back how do i get it" and so i asked how did we get your purse. she said " well when i made my deposit last night i thought you guys would need my id so i put my purse in the depoitory with my deposit." DUMB ASS
    Another lady put $40 cash into an atm without an envelope or account number and she expected me to find it.

    This reminds me of a couple of scenes in "Clerks". I have had those people ask what the price of something with HUGE signs where they picked the item up from.

    And the one about the stop light reminds me of a puzzle I still do not know the answer to. Almost all ATM machines have brail keys, but all the info is on the screen and not available in brail, how do they know what the screen says or what buttons to punch at what time?

    The braille actually just tells them its not available and they need to go into the bank and leaves bank hours but its still funny though

    I was at the local McDonald's sometime back when the counter girl asked if I could do her a favor? I said I'd try, to which she mentioned that someone had put two foreign coins in her change drawer and woundered if I would mind taking them? Having kids I thought that they would like that so I said OK. To which she slides me (two) Susan B Anthony dollars in place of two quarters. I asked her if she had any more she said no, I thanked her and left. True story. Iceman

    <font color=blue> I don't mean to lump you in with the idiots ! There are always the exceptions to the rule, but in the most part kids today can barely function and know even less about every day things ........ it's pretty sad when you think about it ! Go to order fast food sometime and you'll see what I mean .........I feel like yelling at the kid .... " I didn't order a dumb stare, ...so quit giving me one ! "
