To Be a Winner April 27, 2006

Posted by Teller in Counter Open.
trackback

Earlier this week a minor won the Burgan Bank Surprizes prize of 300,000 KD. He was featured in all the major newspapers and with good cause. That’s roughly 1 million US dollars. The boy looks under 12 years old and he’s now a millionaire, or close enough. His father said that part of the winnings will be donated to charities and toward the boy’s education but words and actions do not always go hand in hand. I pray that his money is managed properly to ensure that it’s still there when he comes of age.

When news like this makes the papers my customers never forget to bring it up when they grace my counter. A lot of them think we tellers have the power to get their names on the winner’s list. If only!

“Can’t you make me a winner in next month’s draw? It’s the big one you know. I could use the extra money for work around the house.”

“Sir, you already are a winner.”

“You know what I mean, Teller. You can make me become the next millionaire!”

“If I could I would’ve had all my relatives win by this time.”

“Oh, I’m sure you can do something about it.” -wink wink-

“I’ll bring it up with the GM at our next meeting I’m sure.”

When nothing happens the next month they sulk but eventually their hopes always return.

To increase your chances of winning place a minimum of 50 KD in each of the following accounts:

Bank of Kuwait and Middle East has Al-Wafeer.
Burgan Bank has B-Surprizes.
Commercial Bank of Kuwait has the Al Najma (Star) draw.
Gulf Bank has its Dana (Mother Pearl).
National Bank of Kuwait has Al Jawhara (Jewel).

The kid won? How did he even open an account? Here you can’t open one without your parents signature, and I think it’s not until you are 16….wow, good for him.

Teller replies: Vixen, a minor’s account is one a parent opens for their child. He was fortunate enough to win, but as a minor the parent who opened the account would have control over the winnings. Here’s hoping that only good comes from that money and no evil.

Teller replies: Temetwir, welcome to my blog. You’re right. I like your idea of change. In regard to GBK I inquired about it and I was told that the salary for life would match the salary the winner currently has with a maximum of KD 500. It would be paid out for a certain number of years. Not a bad prize to win.

Re: The Spanking Lawsuit

That is utterly ridiculous. CAn you believe they have been doing this for months and only until she sued did the company stop the practice! I’m glad that she won. In this day and age that shouldn’t be accepted in the workplace under any circumstances—and in the US no less. Ha!
