Strange Behavior Continued May 11, 2006Posted by Teller in Counter Open.
Today the shady character from my previous story returned to the branch.
I was away from my counter and concealed in my favorite dusty corner with my favorite coworker, FunnyGirl. FunnyGirl is so named because she has a knack of turning everyday occurances into hilarious tales. A simple drive to work becomes a madcap car chase. A visit to a restaurant results in outrageous modes of flirting and humiliations in front of the other sex. She was telling me of her latest mall exploits when the Trainee showed up and told me someone was asking for me. When you hear that someone is asking for you in the branch 90% of the time it's not a good sign. Customers only ask for you if they've come to complain.
"Who is it?"
"I asked him but he wouldn't tell me his name."
"Is he a regular?"
"No. I've never seen him before."
"Did he seem angry?"
"Did he ask for me brusquely or casually?"
"He seemed worried. He asked if you were transferred to another branch. When I told him no, he asked if you had the day off. I told him you were here and then he seemed to relax."
Curious, I went out to see who it was. No one was waiting for me. I asked the Meeter-Greeter if she'd seen the guy.
"It was the same man who was staring at you the other day."
