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 two pounds.”
The teller told him, “For withdrawals less than 100 pounds 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 pounds 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 pounds.
“Well, better give me 5000 pounds just now”, The teller then handed it very friendly and respectfully to him.
The old man put two pounds in his wallet , stood a couple of seconds before asking teller to deposit 4998 pounds back into his account.
