I’ve been downhearted, bank. I’ve been downhearted, bank. Ever since the day you downsized. Ever since the day you cut back…

Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh….

Brothers and Sisters. Sisters and Brothers. I got a problem. I know many youngsters don’t know what a phone booth is and may not get the reference or the metaphor for the title. I also know it’s been since ’95… But Bone Thugs’n’Harmony told y’all… 21 years later and all the 21st century tech and check deposits via apps ain’t gone stop The 1st. It’s the first of the month. Folks are still cashing checks at the bank. Businesses are still depositing funds at the bank. It’s tha fiiiirst…. Wake up, wake up, wake up…

I got a problem.

2 Tellers ain’t enough. 2 tellers ain’t enough period, point blank, Bank of America. Check cashing place got more tellers than y’all on the first. Two tellers on the first? Psssssssshhhhhh… Why y’all acting brand new?

I suddenly feel possessed by the spirit of Primitive Radio God’s “Standing at a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand”…

I stand in line and wait impatiently for my turn…

Because apparently they think, we got lots of time to burn…

It ain’t the teller’s fault and it ain’t mine…

Cuz corporate management gone milk us all for every dime….

Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh…

I mean, for real, can’t y’all AT LEAST show some love on the first and the fifteenth?!?! This line is 10 deep now. Seniors, students, men, women, all ethnicities represented up in this line… We are “America” up in this line. Apparently, game does not recognize game, especially when the game is bottom line profit. Oh yeah, I forgot. That America trumps the America up in this line…

Lawd have mercy!!!  And y’all got the nerve to be training folk on the first?!?!?!?!?

I’m glad you all are hiring, cuz the struggle is real and folk need employment. But something tells me that there will still be two tellers on the fifteenth… Annoying… See? Even thoughtful, erudite, self-absorbed theologians/pastors can become self-centered…

But not as self-centered as corporate management who took away all the tellers, while they increased their salaries.

Bamn.

Annoying….

Speaking of annoying things that you can’t escape (i.e. catchy)… Those my age or older will remember; kiddies, beware…

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiigh…. I’m still in line…
