Yes it is a scary world right now and I'm afraid it will probably get worse. Glad everyone is ok, although I'm sure they are all shook up right now.

Sorry to hear it but glad that everyone is OK.

I heard a bank in L.A. got robbed earlier this week (or last) by three men with weapons and they pistol whipped one of the employees because no one would open the vault, sent him to the hospital. eek mad

My daughter was robbed a couple of years ago, that was really scary and it took her awhile to get over it even though he didn't seem to have a weapon. Hope that everyone there gets over their anxiety quickly pjs and I hope they catch the guy (or girl)!!

Glad it was only a monetary loss.

Thank you everyone for caring.
It shook me up and I wasn't at the branch.
I think I am becoming more afraid as the years go by. I don't like myself very much for that.

PJS, we had one branch that was robbed 3x in 2 years, it was very traumatic on the branch staff. We provided counseling, but it still is a shock and is very scary for everyone.

Glad everyone is physically ok, hope the emotional/mental wounds aren't deep.

So glad no one was hurt! I think everyone's EAP will be working overtime for a while with the seeming increase in robberies.

Curled up by the fire...
I was terrified being in a branch. That only lasted for a few months. I like being in an Admin building where there are no customers!

PJS - was it a one-on-one or a take-down?

Glad that everyone is ok. It's a tough time to be in banking.

Yeah, Pooh, I wonder if the holiday season cause an increase in robberies due to our failing economy. frown

I'm afraid it will.

It's a good time for branch staff to review their robbery procedures, and suspect description skills.

Not to make light of your situation but I heard something on the news this morning that made me laugh. A guy tried to rob a bank in PA and the teller fainted so he went to the next two tellers and they didnt' have any money yet because the bank just opened. He got mad and left and said something about complaining to management. crazy

I think they caught him.

How wickedly funny KC.

It was one guy in a hoodie,dark glasses, black gloves, black pants and shoes. They got a description of the vehicle but did not see which direction he drove off in. I'm not sure if someone was waiting in the car- I'll know more when I go to work Saturday.

Our teller line at that branch is made up of pretty much Amish girls - their clients/customers at that branch are probably 95% Amish too. It was one of my favorite branches to do my loan reviews at.

Thanks everyone.

Glad to hear that no one was injured, pjs. All of us need to be alert and aware that people take desperate measures in desperate times. Will be saying a prayer for your folks!

Comment deletedGod bless the employees. They don't make enough money to risk their lives.
