On The Lighter Side...
The teller at the deposit window of the bank sharply reprimanded a man because he had neither filled out a deposit slip nor put his loose silver in the special little rolls of specified amounts.
"When you've done this properly, I'll be glad to accept your deposit," said the teller curtly.The man accepted this tirade meekly and went to a counter to follow instructions. When he returned later to the window the teller apologized for being rude.
"Oh, that's all right," said the man graciously. "I have a houseful of teenagers, so I'm used to being spoken to as if I were an idiot."
