Last week I accidentally left my debit card in the ATM machine near where I work. I went today to the bank nearby to see if they had collected it there.
I approached the young lady working at the bank counter who, though cute in a pancake sort of way, seemed very sad and unhappy. I explained that I lost my card and asked if she could check. She did. When she came back (with my card) I asked:
"How are you today?"
Me: "Good. 'cause you look like your dog died or something."
Me: ::blank stare::
Her: "No, I'm just tired today I guess."
Me: "Oh. Okay. 'Cause I've seen more cheer in videos about the Holocaust."
Her: ::blank stare::
Me: "Well, see ya later!"
These are the conversations of my life. A gentle wake-up call or a vastly inappropriate insult? You decide!
