2 thou-hundred

I can't believe people actually get mad at me for not being able to speak their language.

Just take that line in for a minute. Read it again, and process...

So here's the reason for my comment: Yesterday I had a lady actually yell at me (in Spanish) for not being able to communicate with her. I spent at least 10 minutes trying to convince her that "2 thou-hundred" is not a denomination. She could not request "2 thou-hundred" to withdraw. Is it 2 thousand? Or 2 hundred? Because that's a big difference. THEN after I finished what she wanted me to do and gave her her "2 thou-hundred" dollars, she gave me the dirtiest look and proceeded to move down to the next teller down the line. Are you serious?! You're going to come to the place where I work and not be able to communicate with me and then you're going to blame it on me like it's my fault I don't speak YOUR language???? Wow. As a personal note to said lady (even though I know she won't be able to READ THIS), "Thanks for the dirty look. It really made me feel good, and definitely got me in trouble at the end of the day."

Can you believe that!? I actually got in trouble for possibly causing her unhappiness...

I need a sticker that says "I love my job".

I'm reminded of a quote from the genius that is Dave Chappelle....

"I can't underSTAND you....GOBACKTOYOURCOUNTRY."

Now, that little morsel of goodness will be 2 thou-hundred dollars please.

There was also a sticker that said "I love my ******* job." That one may have fit better for yesterday. Sorry for the bad day, at least the weekend is only hours away and it's supposed to beautiful outside!!
