Today must've been...  
...a full moon - I don't think I've ever seen our Operations Manager call the police so often in one day for so many people... It was an interesting day at work (to say the least). :P The first call was for a guy who had come into the bank and harassed our workers and customers before. He had gone up to my co-worker and asked her "Where can I find an escort service?" When she said she didn't know he said, "You don't? Aren't you one?" :[ Today he came into the bank wearing A PLASTIC TRASH BAG and a tank top and just walked around the bank staring down and unnerving all of our customers... :P The second call was for a guy who stood outside the bank door asking for money from customers who were exiting and getting belligerent and yelling at people when they didn't pay attention. :P I felt really sorry for all of our customers who were harassed today... The one place you should feel relatively safe in is a bank... :P Hopefully we've met our "bad customer" quota for the rest of the week! :P UGH! :P

I'm just about a week away from being in LA again... *SIGH* It's been way too long and I just feel like I need to get off this rock sometimes (I know that's horrible to say) - but I think I'm pretty due for a vacation. :) And it seems like it's been forever since I've seen my friends and heard Kevin sing...

Tomorrow night we're taking Mark's parents out to dinner for their anniversary. It should be a lot of fun but a lot of calories (we're going to ANOTHER buffet!) :P I had hoped that after Mark's birthday, the eating would slow down, but it doesn't look like it has. :P The one thing that amazes me (and irritates me a little) is how Mark can eat anything he wants, not work out and not gain weight and I can just smell food and I gain 5 pounds... It just doesn't seem fair! ;)

Aw, are you serious? That is so crazy? I've never seen that happen in a bank before... What is going on now days?

You going to LA? Isn't POTO going to be in LA? Ah...I wanna go!

Crazy is right, when I used to work at the Makiki branch it was a lot worse because of the location - we used to get crazy people who came in all the time - and they all came to MY desk... :P

And I will be in LA!!! :) In one week! :) I haven't heard that POTO is going to be there yet,... Are they still finishing up their run in SF? I'm not too sure...

Yuck - that stinks about the creepy customers!!! I hope you have had your quota for more than just this month! Yuck! At least your boss was all over it... and called the cops instead of just ignoring it. Thats cool.

So you are coming to LA! Woo Hoo! Get ready for the heat! Oh yeah, you are used to that where you are! :-) How long will you be here for?

The great thing about management here is that they're very pro-active about things like that - which is nice. :)

LA!!! :) I can't wait, even though I know that I'll be entering an oven! :P I'll only be there for the weekend... :( I always take such short trips because vacation time is such a premium here. :P Should be a lot of fun, though. :)

Wow, that brings back memories of when I used to work at Venture (like Wal-Mart) doing customer service. We had some real wackos who would come in there!

It seems like all men got blessed with better metabolisms than women.

For some reason all the crazy customers always come to my desk! :P I must have a sign somewhere that reads - "Crazy? Have a seat, I can help you!" :P

It seems like all men got blessed with better metabolisms than women.

Doesn't that just seem - I don't know... so unfair? ;) The injustice of it all! ;)

That's pretty crazy about those customers and all. I'm just glad you're okay. :)

I'm the same way when it comes to gaining weight. It's not fair is it?
Sherishutterbug93 on August 14th, 2003 11:11 am (UTC)
Thanks, Carrie. :) It's been a while since we've had really bad customers so I guess we were due... :P

And the whole weight thing is totally unfair... and the funny part is that Mark never used to eat a lot before we met... Now he's eating a lot more and still looks the same as when I met him... Whereas I have gained at least 20 lbs since meeting him... :P Not fair is right. ;)

The one thing that amazes me (and irritates me a little) is how Mark can eat anything he wants, not work out and not gain weight and I can just smell food and I gain 5 pounds...

Men... Same thing with my hubby. He can think about working out and looses weight, I can think about eating and gain. Grrrr ;)

Mark & I are the same way! :D That's too funny! :D

That really sounds like an interesting day at work. Please, take care of yourself and I hope that no more "bad customers" will visit your bank.

Vacation in LA sounds good. :) How long do you will stay there?

Oh, more eating. ;) Nevertheless, I wish you fun tomorrow night. :)

Thank, Sabine. :) I hope our "bad customer" stint is over too. :)

Ah, I can't wait for LA! :) Unfortunately, I'll only be there two full days :(, but I plan to make the absolute MOST of them! :)

And the buffet was very delicious! :) Hope you have a nice Friday. :) Take care. *HUGS*
