This is what's wrong

Rarely do I get to bear witness to something truly "blog-worthy." Today, however, was an exception. It happened today at lunch when I stopped by the ATM to deposit some checks. My visit to the bank was extended a bit when one of the checks I needed to deposit gave the ATM indigestion and it popped back out of his mouth mid-transaction.  Yes, I just said the ATM was male. And his name was Pip.

Anyway, I had to go inside the bank to deposit my check with an actual live person bank teller. When was the last time you did that, huh? For me, it had been a while. So I'm standing in line behind 3-ish people. An older gentleman was at the head of the line when one of the tellers was freed up. After the "I can help the next person in line" announcement from the pleasant middle eastern woman teller (yes, this fact is pertinent to the story), the gentleman at the head of the line looks at her, shakes his head and said "No thanks, i'll wait for 1 of those 2."  And by "those 2," the man was referring to the other 2 bank tellers, who were younger and looked like children of the Aryan race. Those 2 tellers were tied up for a bit and so he decided to wait. The next couple people in line went ahead of him to be served by the first teller. When my turn came, he was still waiting for 1 of the other 2 tellers, both of whom looked like they had just graduated high school and were probably more preoccupied with updating their facebook status than focusing on the task at hand. I went to deposit my check with the first teller. While she was helping me, I looked back at the man and he was giving my teller the stink eye. Full on glaring at her! Now, I can't say for sure what that man's deal was and I don't want to jump to conclusions here, but I do know he was an IDIOT. He refused service from the perfectly capable teller and then proceeded to make faces at her. Are you kidding me? This, my friends, is what's wrong with the world.

My vote: those people need a good hard slap.
