Yeah...I Did That

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."

Hey, at least you got to get away from the office for a bit! If you had remembered before you left, you would have had to stay inside :-)

That's what I'm talking about. Seriously, though. How long did you actually wait? And please tell you posted somewhere live time that you were at the bank waiting...
