Pissed Off

        Sorry for the title of this blog but I am just livid. All thru November when I went to a Bank I would ask if the 2015 Calendars had arrived. Finally they arrived in December. I asked the front desk clerk for 2 Calendars, a desk Calendar and a wall Calendar. The clerk quickly replied “No sir, I can only let you have one”. For some reason this reply hit me the wrong way in fact I was stunned and insulted. I lost it. Fortunately there were only 3 other customers in the Bank at the time. My voice got very loud and I replied to the clerk “With all the charges I pay you in a year, you are going to limit the number of Calendars I can have” “With the Banks bragging about record profits, they have to restrict the number of free Calendars”. My behavior even though it was not very Professional, did yield me my 2 Calendars. Like I said, her comment insulted me so much that I instantly reacted. Am I crazy or is this total nonsense. The Banks charge for everything you do with them unless you have thousands of dollars on deposit and even then I am not sure you get anything free. Then I ask for 2 Calendars and get told there are limited quantities. Lucky I do not have a large office or staff because everyone would have to share one Calendar in the lunch room.
