My wife' s comment, and she is a banker:

"Cute!! One footnote: men leave their cards in the machine and drive off more frequently than women who obviously sit in the lane a lot longer!!"

Ah John.... glad to see you........ I think.... :grin

Actually there is a lot of truth in that.. I usually go to bank.. pull into a parking space.... get my ducks all in a row, and then drive up to the ATM, where I can do things the guy way.. ....................................................

other than the fact that unlike any of the guys I have been behind.. I drive forward to count my money.. giving the person behind me a chance to start to conduct their business :lol


My husband will rarely use the drive through as he's convinced he's going to hit the mirror on the machine. I, on the other hand, can deposit a cheque in about 20 seconds and be off WITH BANK CARD IN HAND! I think when it comes to the actual banking portion, women are MUCH faster. Some men seem to stare at the machine as though the options change every time. JMHO though :) :) :)

BUT I used to be a bank teller in another life.in both drive-thru and at a main teller line....those 2 years are invaluable and I still retain all my habits from then..sigh..you outta see men at banks..:dizzy.they really have no clue..they need a pen, they need a deposit ticket..oops forgot to sign the back as you're getting cash...OMG..=hammer..Give me a woman most times..sigh..

:thumb John!

Though I must admit I take one more step. I count the monies I withdraw in front of the ATM so the security camera can catch it, just in case the amount dispensed is incorrect! And yes it does sometimes happen!
