It's been a rough week; bright and early on Monday morning, something like one of my nightmares happened. A man came into the bank, dressed all in black, including a black ski mask and a black handgun. There were two of us in the lobby, one teller (me), and a CSR/supervisor on the platform. The rest is pretty fuzzy to me right now, but yes, he pointed a gun at us and demanded everything. He was menacing, disbelieving that this could possibly be all the money I had. It was a surreal experience, but it was over quickly.
The supervisor who stood with me that morning is feeling very angry. For me, that's not the feeling. It's simply shock and awe for me, that someone's life could possibly be so out of control and messed up that this is what he's come to. And being armed means that he risked doing an awful lot of time for--not a very glamorous amount of money.
The whole thing had a depressing effect on me, part of the gloom I already felt, I suppose. And then yesterday, we all dressed up for Halloween, and it gets old working in costume and working around coworkers who are too distracted with the costume contest and to actually work. At least three of us left work yesterday with our grump on, so...
Yay! It's Friday! I am promising myself right here on this blog to get up and run both days, as it will be sunny and pretty this weekend, and to remember that life is good. Annoying and trying sometimes, but good.
Any weekend plans? Do tell, I love ideas...
