Happy Friday! I started a job as a bank teller in September 1990 and I have been working for or hanging around banks ever since. Here are a few banking jokes that I hope interest you this week.
Q: How many bankers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Four. One to hold the bulb, and three to try to remember the combination.
Open For Business
Did you hear the one about the bank where the employees went on strike, leaving the bank officers to do the teller’s tasks?
While the strike was on, a customer called the bank to ask if they were open. They told her that they had two windows open.
Then the caller asked, “Can’t I just come through the front door?”
Banking Crisis Looming in Japan
According to the latest reports, a major banking crisis is immanent in Japan.
The crisis began last week following news that Origami Bank had folded. Now we are hearing that Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank is planning to cut back some of its branches.
Rumor has it that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and could be had for a song.
During trading today shares in Kamikaze Bank nose-dived. Latest reports say that 500 back-office staff are on the chopping block at Karate Bank.
Further analysts have reported that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank –staff fear they may be in for a raw deal.
