Big, Hairy Creatures

There are some things that absolutely do not belong in a bank! Big, hairy tarantulas fall into this category. I'm not sure why this customer thought it was okay to bring her big, hairy tarantula into the bank where I work today, but she did. All I can say is, THANK GOD in heaven above that I didn't actually get a look at the thing. I might've had a heart attack right there in my chair. All I could see was my manager and some others holding up this terraririum type thing and looking inside while tapping on the glass. Only later did I find out that it was a big, hairy tarantula. Anyhow, moral of the story...People please do not take animals where they don't belong!

Would a bald tarantula have been better???

You would THINK a "NO PETS" sign would be enough. But, at my office we have a "NO SOLICITING" sign on the door and all sorts of people come in selling all sorts of stuff.

It might just be easier to teach people to read. And also to heed signage.

Art, in this case...YES!

Susan, it's not that people can't read, it's that they don't think the rules apply to them and/or that they just don't pay attention to them...

Hi I found you from Arts blog :)It's funny to read your post because I was bitten by a spider yesterday on my finger. Thankfully though, it wasnt poisonous but it was not a nice afternoon, I dislike most bugs.

carmel, I'm with you! I hate bugs of any sort, size, kind, etc. They're NASTY! Spider bites are awful, hope you recover quickly!
