A: Count your money accurately!!!
Today I had to make a small deposit of cash, rolled coins, and a money order at the local bank that I use mainly for buying and selling homeschool curriculum.
It was the first day of a merger, so I'll give them some slack for computer problems, learning a new system etc.
BUT, it took 2 tellers 10 minutes to count my deposit of less than $100. My 10 year old was in with me and she kept telling them how much it added up to. They had to re-count several times and kept getting the wrong total!!
Object lesson: kids, this is why I make you practice counting money and giving back accurate change at home. This is why you do your own transactions when you're buying something.
BUT, I did remain calm and gracious, which was not my temperment, my God working in me. So, will we drop this bank? I think I'll give them several more chances.
At least their web banking was easy and accurate!
