This is for who?

So I went to bank today to deposit my paycheques. (I work as a salesperson. Oh trust me, you don’t want to know what I sell :P But does Weed Man ring a bell? )

Anyways, so I stepped into the bank, passed the security guy, and waited patiently in line. What surrounded my ears were sounds of coins and people counting money. And I hated that. I hated it because it reminds me of the materialistic view of society, and of my own.

“You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you're satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you've got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.” To quote from Fight Club.

I feel like that sometimes…

The worst thing is, working in a bank is probably the best job I will get after I finish university since I’m most likely gonna get a degree in commerce. Why commerce then, you would ask? Ah, there by hangs a tale.

Alright, fine. I’m not gonna bored you with my oh-so-fascinating career dilemmas. So here’s a little comic relief instead:

Back to me at the bank. After hours of waiting (hyperbole of course), I went to the counter and politely stated my request to the lady there.
“Alright.” She said, taking over the bank card and cheques I handed over to her.
After a few seconds, she spoke bluntly, “This is for Hu (who)?”
“Me?” I replied, rather confused. Obviously, I thought.
“Oh I meant to confirm your last name.”
She then bursted out laughing, until she finally calmed herself down and apologized, “Sorry, boy that was funny!”

Now that’s when I started chuckling unstoppably. Bank people (yeah, that’s how I call them) actually have good sense of humour, I realized. (Unbelievable right? Or is it just me… )
Hm… maybe they are not transactional robots after all.

Yes, my last name is Hu in case you didn’t catch the joke. And if anyone calls me Ms. Hu in the future, you know what I'd say?

“WHO?!?!” :P

PS: As I was searching up "Hu "on Youtube, guess what I found?

Don't end up laughing on the floor, like I did. XD

Will Truman after transition

Will Truman after transition of course :P I bet undertakers have awesome sense of humour, or else how would they survive the day? And sorry, to your disappointment, I'm not English. Just think "cheques" looks hotter than "checks", not as hot as "chicks" though XD

Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

That is one of my favorite Fight Club quotes.

And you know you're going to have to go into your career dilemmas eventually now that you've mentioned them, right?

You should try spellling "chicks" as "chiques," just for fun.
