Anything north of £500, they ALWAYS ask you what it’s for?
Bit cheeky, isn’t it?.
They do it in a kind of matey ‘oh, going shopping today are we?’ but it is blatantly aimed at fishing for fraud info/ check you’re not buying children drugs or something and then they quickly type your answer into the computer AS THIS WILL GO DOWN ON YOUR PREMANENT RECORD.
So today I had to withdraw £570 to pay for some bills and shiiiit and the teller was all ‘oh, going shopping are we?’ so I thought, NO MORE! and I said
‘yeah, I’m buying a boat’
TAKE some of THAT false information!!!
But then he had loads of follow up questions like ‘oh, What kind of boat?’….’Is it a boat for one?’ (fuck off, mate! A boat for fucking one!) ‘Is it a rowing boat?’….’what made you decide to make this decision to buy a boat?’ ‘is it your first boat?’
In the end said it was a dinghy (is that just a plastic, inflatable boat?) with an outboard motor etc.
The when I was leaving he said really loudly (the whole bank had heard my boat conversation) ‘HAPPY SAILING!’ :D
So, my question is, what ridiculous thing shall I say I’m buying next time?
