An old Man walked into the bank and stood in the queue, when it was his turn he handed his bank card to a bank teller and said, “I would like to withdraw £10.”
The teller told him, “For withdrawals less than £100 please use the ATM.”
The old man wanted to know the reason for this.
The teller returned his bank card and told him, “These are the banks rules & rules are rules, now sir, please leave if there is nothing else i can help you with, there is a queue behind you and you will find the ATM outside.”
The old man remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the teller and said, “yes can i withdraw all my money.”
The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance.
She shook her head, leaned over and whispered, “but sir you have £80,000 in your account and the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently could you make an appointment and come back tomorrow?”
The old man then asked, “how much can I withdraw today.”
The teller told him any amount up to £5000.
“Well, better give me £5000 just now”, The teller then handed it very friendly and respectfully to him.
The old man put £10 in his wallet, stood a couple of seconds before asking teller to deposit £4990 back into his account.
