1. I'm giving out my first-ever strange transaction award. An older man came in, wanting to withdraw $162.83 from one account, then deposit $160.83 into another account, and get $2.83 back. This was the only time all day that I did not bother to ask the obligatory question, "how would you like that?" and also the only time I had someone stop me in my tracks before I opened my drawer to specify exactly how he wanted that. Oh, but before I go on, I should tell you that since he could not rattle off his account number, he held up his cell phone to me, where he stored all his pertinent information. That was tiny and weird, but once I had it written down in larger form for him, he was fine. How did he want his money? He wanted one dollar bill plus $1.75 in state quarters, etc. My eyes got wide, since I'd only brought out one roll of quarters from my coin locker, but lo and behold, I found seven quarters that met his expectations. Luckily, he didn't care which states he got. After he left, a neighboring teller told me that he does this a lot. That's good to know. (He is a sweet old man.)
2. Happy Valentines Day!
Oh, go on, go ahead and have a good day, even if you don't particularly like Valentines Day. Tomorrow's Friday, at least.
