No, no, no....SERIOUSLY!?
THIS is how freaking BAD our dependency on technology has become!
I went to the bank this morning to make a deposit. As I waited in line for the transaction in front of me to finish, i noticed there was some slight perplexity to it, being multiple cash deposits. Once completed, the customer departed, but the teller suddenly looked concerned and started shuffling about stacks of bills. Who I assume was the manager came over, more shuffling, then the other two tellers joined in to help. The first teller took a large stack of fives and put it in the money counter, and in a few seconds stated "I have 90, fives....how much is that?"
My jaw dropped. But what came next was worse! Neither the manager nor the other two tellers had ANY clue...and started searching for a calculator #!#
Impatient to finish my business I spoke , barely hiding the sarcasm and said "450.00...the number you're looking for is....$450.00"
SHEESH! Even more shocking was how surprised they were that I was so good at math!? Its not advanced algorithms....it's freaking basic multiplication!!
No wonder Americas financial institutions are so ban-jacked!
Twas another slow cold one today. But I did manage to pick up a soon to be sweet lightweight Fuji hybrid, big boy AND the offer of a writting gig for an Internet TV show, popping out scripts. Oh, long story, but turns out an actor, turned acting teacher, turned film producer supplied the Fuji, we got to talking, he described the concept briefly, then offered me the opportunity. More on that as it unfolds.
Did a few repairs, but not much else, sadly. Need to gather up some parts for the rides in limbo, and found out...we were...out. Simple stuff...until you don't have any more!
Hopefully will rectify that tomorrow!
Well...sorry so short....but running on two hours sleep for nineteen hours work....I'm bushed. Well ok, hard to call the five hours at the shop puttering..."work"...but I wasn't sleeping!
Anyway, love y'all!
