Funny Bank Moment #19: Illinois
One of my flatmates, had this experience when he still worked for a bank in the Philippines. He noticed that the client, an old lady, indicated only USA as her US address instead of the complete address:
Teller: Ma’am isulat n’yo po ang complete address n’yo sa US.
Client: Hijo, pwede bang ikaw na ang magsulat ng address?
Teller: Ma’am bawal po kami magsulat. Dapat po kayo ang magsulat.
Client: ‘Di ko kasi alam ang spelling ng I-li-noy
Teller (di rin alam): Ah…eh… Sige ma’am USA na lang po.
Client: Sabi ko sa’yo USA na lang eh.
