Things That Make You Go "DUH!"

One of our tellers had off today, but she still stopped by our drive-up to deposit a check. She also asked the drive up teller to get her a cup of iced coffee from the coffee shop and put it through the drive up drawer for her. I was not listening to their conversation, or I would have kicked the drive up teller in her knee cap to prevent the tragedy that was about to unfold.

See, the standard coffee shop iced coffee cup is roughly eight inches tall. The clearance of our automated drive-up drawer is six inches. The brain power of these two tellers combined is not enough to toast a piece of bread.

And the time it takes for someone to completely clean a cups worth of iced coffee out every crevice of the automated drive-up drawer is about an hour and 45 minutes.

My God, It's Full Of Stars...

There have been several celebrity sightings here at Southern Star Bank. It's in my hometown of Manorville, and it serves as a stop for a prominent bus line. As there is a chain coffee shop here, it tends to attract passengers who are looking for refreshment between legs of their long journey into the Hamptons (as opposed to between the legs of a long journey into your mom's- never mind).

I have seen Alec Baldwin! Famke Jansen! And I am pretty sure Alan Alda may have used our toilet the other day...

The coffee smell is starting to get to me, though.
