Banking

I have come to one of my trademark revelations. What is
this earth shattering epiphany, you ask?

If you can't count, you shouldn't go into the banking
business.

This may sound like common sense, but you'd be amazed at
the depth of idiocy that I'm forced to deal with on a daily
basis.

I got a notice in the mail today that I had bounced a
check. I do not bounce checks. Knowing that sufficient
funds were in place, I called the bank, who informed me
that there was still money in the account, even after they
charged me a returned check fee.

I pointed out that if there was still money in the account,
then it was impossible for me to have bounced a check. They
apologized, admitted that they hadn't actually paid any
attention to what they were doing, and promptly refunded my
money.

It would not be smart to hire an aquaphobic lifeguard. One
would think that it would similarly be in bad taste to hire
a banker who can't count. Apparently, though, math skills
are no longer a prerequisite for employment in the banking
sector.

I realize that America needs employment opportunities for
the multitudes of public school graduates; which is why we
have a fast food service industry.

If nothing else, this explains why I never end up with the
right number of chicken nuggets.
