I went to Chase Bank a while back, I wasn’t in a rush, but there was only one teller behind the counter, so my curiosity got the best of me…..
“Excuse me, I couldn’t help but notice that there are only two of you working, are you hiring?”
“No, but we are changing the look of things, we won’t be needing tellers anymore.”
Since I knew I had her attention I decided to focus on her heart, for that is where the truth resides…..
“What about your job?”
“They are going to make us all bankers on the floor, plus other incentives.”
Her response was hopeful at best, although she did try to make it seem otherwise. I will give her credit for her futile attempt, at least she tried to satisfy her own insecurities. I could tell that she was more hopeful than secure in her response, so I decided to give her a little advice…..
“If I were you, I would be looking for another way to survive, look around, it is one o’clock in the afternoon and there is only one banker on the floor, and she is on her cell phone! Does it look like you need any bankers?”
She is currently working at our local grocery store, but for how long?
