Edna and the Bank of America
Eighty-four-year-old Edna was at her Bank of America, trying to make a withdrawal, and handed her card to the teller. "I would like to withdraw ten dollars, please," she said.
The teller told her, "For withdrawals less than $100, please use the ATM."
Edna wanted to know why.
Returning Edna her bank card, the teller irritably told her, "Those are Bank of America's rules. Please leave if there is no other business; there is a line of customers behind you."
Edna remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the teller and said, "Please help me withdraw all the money I have."
The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down, and told her, "You have $500,000 in your account, and the bank doesn't have that much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come back tomorrow?"
Edna then asked how much she could withdraw immediately.
The teller told her any amount up to $3,000.
"Please get me $3,000 right now."
The teller angrily went to the vault, retrieved stacks of $ 20's and $10's and spent the next ten minutes counting out $3,000. "Is there anything else I can do for you today?" the teller asked sternly.
Edna put $10 in her purse and said, "Yes, I'd like to deposit $2,990 into my account."
The moral of this tale:
Don't fool with old people. They spent a lifetime learning the skills.
