Part of my new job requires me to complete a bank deposit on the days that another co-worker is out of the office. Monday was one of those days, and it was an extremely busy one as well.
I usually finalize this task around 3 so that I can have time to get to the bank before they close. I definitely never mind having to do this, because it gives me a chance to get out of the office and enjoy the fresh air.
I drove over to the bank and pulled up in the drive thru and sat, waiting for someone to come to the window. I noticed it was darker inside than I remembered, but I also knew that sometimes drive-thru windows are tinted. So I sat. And sat. And sat.
Finally I pushed the call button, which I hate doing. Those buzzers are so annoying to the employees, but my wait was getting a little ridiculous. I sat some more. I checked out Twitter, checked my e-mail, sent out a few text messages, and there was still no one coming to the window. I begin to look at the business hours, thinking maybe I had those wrong.
Lo and behold...Right on the window next to the business hours is a sign that says: "We will be closed on February 20 in observance of President's Day."
