It almost sounds like the teller had been recently admonished for an error or perhaps the way she may have responded to a customer's request. Whatever the reason, I would suggest that you go back to her the next time with the same request. See if her attitude has changed. At best, give her a chance to show her good side.

She was very nice, she said that this is a new policy, that they don't count your money, if you want to that is no problem. Like she said, some do and some don't. Why won't you? I want to make sure I got the right amount before I leave the bank.

When the tellers had to count the money out of the drawer, they were instructed to re-count it for the customer. Now that a machine counts it, no recount is necessary because machines are perfect and never make a mistake.

I am getting ready to head to bed as I have to get up bright and early for my neurologist appointment in the morning. It is not in town so we have to leave really early through rush hour traffic.

I am also getting together my list of medications and diagnoses - yes, it is a very long list!

I'd better get off the computer and head out to grocery shop. Sound like a plan? Until then, "chow"!

Did you have a problem? If so we can walk you through, or at least someone can.

We had a problem once at the bank's ATM machine. It malfunctioned and the money didn't come out, but it deducted it from our account and the machine went "out of order." We went into the bank and they said nothing could be done until the next day when the machine was audited. I argued with them because I didn't think that the money should have been deducted from our account in that case. We had enough money to make another withdrawal so we had cash, but what if we didn't? We were at the ATM that is attached to the building. They said that the ATM that is by itself out on an island is only audited once a week and we would have had to wait until that audit day to get our money.

I'm off to an organic farm. I see mass freezing in my near future.

I have spent the better part of the day listening to all of my muscles yell at me. Two hours of gardening yesterday, today I feel like an old lady. What, what? I AM an old lady? Just wait until it's your turn...
