I stopped by the bank on the way home since I didn’t want to do it before my 7:30 AM meeting. Everyone knows I’m not quite an early bird yet, maybe one day. I wanted to get my banking done and pack my gym bag to get a head start for Thursday since I would likely sleep until the last possible second in the morning.
The ATM machine was inside so I swiped my debit card to unlock the door to let me in the bank. While I’m at the ATM, I hear this commotion at the door and then this guy walks in. I was nervous until I turned around and saw I could take him. He commented that the door was a little finicky.
I finished my transaction, then when I got ready to leave the door wouldn’t open, so I tried pushing and pulling harder then tried the other door and IT WOULDN’T OPEN! It was my turn to cause a commotion and the guy stopped what he was doing to see what was going on. When I turned back to the first door, I saw this GIANT RED button that you’re supposed to push to get out.
During all the commotion, i thought omg I don’t want to be locked in the bank until the morning but wait if that happens I’ll be on the news! Ummm no…all that happened is that I managed to get out of the bank, just slightly embarrassed with my inability to open the door for myself.
Has this happened to anyone else? Tell me I’m not alone.
