Today I went into my bank and was surprised to find that they have had stanchions installed in order to maintain some type of crowd control at that branch, which I find to be so silly. I have never seen more than a half a dozen people in that branch for as long as I have used them. Besides the fact that most people I know don’t have any money so there is no need to be rushing to any bank pushing and shoving the other people to get to the teller.
The beautifully plush velvet rope that they have installed is another surprise. I know for a fact that velvet isn’t cheap, for that matter neither are the stanchions that they have purchased and placed in their lobby. That just irritates me to think that they are spending good money on such things when money is so tight for so many good people all across the country. This is just a small bank in a small town, not some fancy big city bank that needs all the pretty fancy stuff that is expected in larger banks in larger areas. Such a waste…..
