16 Things Everyone Who Has Worked In A Bank Can Relate To

July 7, 2016

1. When you get your employment letter

We are not mates anymore.

2. First day of work and you hear you can only leave at 8PM

Sah, did you say eight as in 8PM?

3. During your training and you hear the kind of target they have

It’s not me that will go to the marketing department abeg.

4. When they end up putting you in the marketing department

Nobody said the road will be this rough.

5. And they tell you your target is N350 million

Must be a mistake, prank, or an expensive joke.

6. But you hear Chioma in marketing brought N400 million last quarter

Na jazz?

7. So you start wondering if bank work is worth it

My photographer and fashion designer friends are not having this stress.

8. You and your social life

Because no time to even sleep properly.

9. Waking up at 4AM and still getting caught up in traffic

This is just pure stress.

10. When you get to work 200% frustrated and Shola from customer service wants to crack jokes

Please, not today or anyday this week.

11. When one customer is getting impatient after only two minutes

Eskiss sir, you need to calm down abeg.

12. You, when people come to withdraw N500 over the counter

Are you being serious? For real?

13. When customer Musa always fills tellers wrong and runs away with your biro

What sort of people are in this world?

14. When your coworker removes his shoe and you can’t breathe again

My God, what is this stench?

15. You when your balances are not matching at the end of the day.

This is the end.

16. When they tell you your major account holder wants to close his account

Please sah. Epp.
