Me: Hi, I'd like to open a savings account.
Bank teller: Do you have already an account here?
Me: No. Is that a problem?
Bank teller: No. Please wait a second
At this time, the lady behind the counter walks over to the assistent manager, talks to him for a moment and then walks over to the manager. I overhear some of it and there seemed to be some confusion.. The manager walks over to the counter..
Manager: You want to open a savings account?
Me: Yes, is that a problem?
Manager: Do you already have a bank account here?
Manager: Where do you have your bank account?
Me: At bank FOO
Manager: You do realize that you can only withdraw money from it when you come to the bank, right?
Me: Yes, but I can still *deposit* money on it by bank transer? I mean, it is a savings account..
Manager: Yes... but why do you want a savings account here?
Me: Because I'm too lazy to find the time to go to another bank and I work here so it's easier.
Manager: OK (still looking a bit confused)
It seemed like they almost didn't want to take my money.. Anyway, I got an appointment to set up the savings account. I have no idea why I need an appointment for that but that's what I have.
