Is it just ABSA or are all banks like this? They seem to go out of their way to employ people, in customer care, with a maximum of 5 brain cells. Angry

Heh!! When I started in Volkskas bank back in the day when I was 17, I was a "tak Ontvangsdame" - basically customer care but it sounded so much better! Its many moons back though, I cant relate to the job itself anymore.

People that fight with their partners whilst at work.  Sitting slouched behind their laptops shouting in whispers at their other half on the phone and dribbling snot all over the keyboards.  Then they slam down the phone and blubber whilst e-mailing a buddy bewailing their misery whilst giving you these little sidewards glances hoping (in vain in my case), that you would get up and offer them a tissue.

Ugh.

Hey, he has to retype it first before he can retype it again. If you want things in triplicate like that, you must be in banking...... Roll Eyes

Opening a packet of Tennis biscuits - excruciatingly difficult to open and when finally wrestled open (reducing half the packet to crumbs in the process) you discover the red "just pull to open" tab on the INSIDE....

Idiotic computer error messages.  Why don't otherwise intelligent programmers realise that an error message that neither tells the user what is wrong nor how to fix it is useless.

Milk cartons that were designed to make the milk run down the side, spilling all over the counter.
