Jim peered over the rims of his tortoise shell glasses at the woman standing at his teller’s station.
“Ma’am, I cannot simply allow you to withdraw several million dollars in cash right now, it’s just -”
“I need that money now!” the woman interjected. Jim hated days like this. Tedious, filled with people who refused to listen to basic logic.
“Ma’am, we’re a small, regional branch of a larger national bank. Even if our policy didn’t require several days notice of a cash withdrawal of the size you are requesting, we simply don’t have that kind of cash on hand at this branch of the bank. I would be happy to-”
“No!” The woman screamed. “I need it now!”
This was going to be a very long day.

The banker was not prepared for the robbery because he sucks. The end.

“I’d like to make a deposit of three hundred dollars.”
The worker looks up and gapes. The girl standing at the counter is gorgeous – slim long legs, smooth white hair, cold green eyes that peer straight into his.
“Yeah, you can do that,” the banker stutters, slightly dazed. “And you can deposit my heart right over there in the trash can,” he mutters under his breath.
“Nothing. I’ll do it now.”
He shouldn’t have taken this job, after all.

Every heart is a bank,
stowing away, in its deepest corners, the most valuable of emotions;
Sealed shut by a lock with an intricate combination on a turning dial.
Every soul is a banker,
deciding to whom those emotions be given;
doled out like cards in a game of poker,
only to hope the account holder isn’t bluffing.

To every banker, bartender, and butcher, don’t vote for the orange man. To every merchant, musician, and moocher, don’t vote for the orange man. No matter your occupation, this country future’s in your hands. So to every American who gives a damn, don’t vote for the orange man.
I voted. You need to vote, too. And do not vote for the orange man.

The banker told us that we could get into our dead grandmas account to help pay for her ashes. The owner of the bank said it was illegal to let us into her account but me and my sister went to the judge to see if it was illegal and he told us, as long as it’s to pay for her ashes and nothing else. The banker gave us four thousand dollars and we needed one thousand and five hundred dollars to get her. We never expected her to pass away so fast. We’re going to have to take the time to take to know that she’s gone.

I walk by the people who sit at the depo. I need to make a deposit.
I go up to the banker and say “Hi. I’d like to bank her.”
He glances at the woman next to me and says “You’ll have to go to the teller.”
So I go and tell her “Hi. I’d like to bank her.”
The teller checks her out and asks “Do you have a check?”
“Am I supposed to? Where are the checkers?”
“That won’t be necessary, but would you like to play?”
She chuckles at her own joke. She leans over the counter, grabs the woman by my side and inserts her into the slot. I ponder if I need to count my account by recount that my accountant already did.
The teller says “That will be no money.”
I invest my hand into the air as I walk away. “Bye, Penny.”

Ironic for today, it’s election day. We seem to have been talking about bankers, Wall Street, Main Street, no street, and building walls for years…Which bankers will be most influential today?

Banking time with her, for the most part. Listening when she talks, thinking about what we’re going to do later while I watch her mouth move. I’m not sure when we met. Maybe at the bank, in line for a bored teller to take a check? Maybe at school, or the bus? Either way it doesn’t matter so long as I stay on this park bench, with her, watching her mouth move in pretty curves and thinking about the art gallery we’re going to later where I’m going to try and maybe hold her hand in between the busts.

Corrupt industry that needs better regulation world-wide. Greed is the nourishment of evil within our entire existence and what is funny, it that we created it ourselves and enslaved ourselves voluntarily.

the banker entered the ministry determined that this time he would not be turned away. He walked up 16 flights of stairs and entered a very auspicious looking room. he gently closed the door behind him and waited for the man sitting at the desk to acknowledge his presence.

The banker walked down the street and slapped Donald in the face. “Why did you do this to me? To us?” the banker yelled. Confused, Donald sipped his latte and walked away.
The banker walked down the street and turned the corner. He slipped quietly into the apartment building trying to evade the Doorman’s gaze. He walked to the elevator and pressed the up arrow. It’s all downhill from here, he thought.

There were two bankers sitting next to each other when all of a sudden they heard a shriek that was sharply cut off by a sharp gurgling noise. They looked up and a pale faced man slicked back his green hair and bared a wide, red lipped smile and asked, “Why so serious?”

Counting, always counting. One piece, two piece, three piece, four…So many numbers going up and up and up. Always getting higher, never going down. It seemed to him that there would never be an end and he would just keep climbing into the sky.

Shoot a basketball
straight in, everyone else does
but I’m a banker
even Steph Curry
could boost his accuracy
by banking his shots
my percentage shot
from 3 point range, 60 plus
made 13 threes straight
and still hit well from baseline
when backboards are nil
to be better than the rest
TRAIN better than them
develope Kareem’s Sky-hook,
off-hand and bank shots
– [ then you will have tools to set yourself above other contenders.
Most of those I helped coach didn’t care. my tall brother didn’t listen. His short friend did listen.
…His friend is the basketball star at school. ;-) ]

my only comfort,

I learned these limits

the nation is shamed [again?!]

I’m always correct.
I hate it. see the future,
but can’t change a thing
I knew they were dumb

and business will now make wealth
for other nations

They said, it’s duty,
when I was little, to vote
I sensed, it’s a waste
The worst decision,
or a losing, better one.
both, failures when made
mine as usual
wouldn’t have mattered if used
I banked well, years back
I’m a good banker
I bank on people’s fears
the nation continues to
divide and regress
[ This generation shall not be the great one, it seems, to undue
failures of the past, but, will in fact continue disappoint similarly]
You took my funds like a banker,
with a button under the counter.
I reclaimed what I once had with a vengeance,
with a mask that covered my ears and nose.
Pressing the button, the silence screamed
and, it was like lightning,
everyone fell to the floor.
You took my love like an anchor,
with a sailboat that would never meet shore.

On a softer side
just heard Shanti Snyder sing
quelle splendide belle voix
I’ve always liked banks, taking my maroon passbook down and depositing ten dollars only to see the figures add up. And the lollipops they give you and the security guard walking around and the
large windows and the hush.

The banker was just having their normal day on the job. Customer, consult, give money, customer. Kind of like a never ending cycle of boredom and currency, at the same times, every single day, for every single year. They frequently wondered just when they’d have their “Eureka!” moment, or their light bulb above their head. They were /waiting/ for their moment to come, for the spotlight to be finally be shone on them. All that was missing was them. No, not them physically. Them emotionally. Them mentally. Them spiritually. The actual them. After a year of being in this dead-beat job, they decided to resign themselves to the conformity of it. A year after that, they began picking up a schedule for everything. And now, 5 years into the job, and they do everything like it’s clockwork. Wake up, get dressed, eat, work, get home, eat, change, sleep. It just goes on and on, and they may be working, but they aren’t working for a better them. They wanted out of it, but did nothing to work on it. That was the one fatal flaw they had. It was sad, really, witnessing this poor soul dreaming of being better, but just not doing it. They could be an Astronaut right now, floating in space and drinking water bubbles. Or they could be releasing their third hit album with their best hit, topping the charts at number 1. They may also be inventing new medicines, helping other people and innovating in the medical field. All they needed was a dream… and they had one. But the difference between the banker and Mendeleev was that Mendeleev did something about his dream. Now, what’ll you do about yours?

She counted the bills carefully, bound them together, and dropped them in the bag. “Nick, I’m batched out. I’m going home.”
Nick looked up from his computer and barely opened his mouth before she was already out the door. He looked after her out the windows. Yep. She was not handling it well. He didn’t blame her.
