Don't Mess With Old People

The old lady handed her bank card to a bank teller 
and said, “I would like to withdraw $500".

The teller told her, “For withdrawals less 
than $2,000, please use the ATM.”

The old lady wanted to know why ...

The teller returned her bank card and irritably told her, 
“These are the rules. Please leave if there is no other 
matter. There is a line behind you.”

The old lady remained silent for a few seconds, 
then handed the card back to the teller and said, 
“Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”

The teller was astonished when she checked the 
account balance. She nodded her head, leaned 
down and respectfully told her, “My apologies 
Ma'am, you have $35 million in your account 
and our bank doesn't have so much cash currently. 
Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?

The old lady then asked how much she could withdraw immediately.

The teller told her any amount up to $250,000.
"Well, please let me have $250,000 now", she requested. 
The teller did so quickly, then handed it very friendly 
and respectfully to her elderly client.

The old lady put $500 in her bag and asked the teller 
to deposit the balance of $249,500 back into her account.

Don't be difficult with old people, 
they spent a lifetime learning the skills.

Thanks Skip!
