Fast Fast Fast

Ever lined up for hours at a bank?

Well, I have. And often while I lined up, wondered if my parking meter was running out, or worrying that i had to be back at work in the next few minutes etc., but reluctant to leave my place in the line..



We never used to have drive-thru banks in Malaysia, but every which way I turn here, there are so many of them! I guess this makes me sound like a hick, but the only times I ever saw the "chute" thing whizz by was when I was at private hospitals in Malaysia where samples and results were beamed up to the respective departments.

Whoopieeeee...

I once read an article where a toddler got sucked into one of those things and three weeks later they found him...IN MALAYSIA! You can't make this stuff up.

Hi Letti, I wish we had drive through banks here - It would make life easier for me lol

ah yes, drive up windows. I don't like to go to the bank unless I can use that window. I guess I get... eh discouraged? Because when I have to go in places, I have to get myself out, get the kid out, carry him in, do my business, carry him out, get him in, get myself in, blah blah blah blah blah. Gets old and strenuous when you have several stops.
Personally I think all stores should have drive-ups. lol

It's not just a Malaysian thing. I didn't go on an elevator until I was out of Junior High. Escalators were experienced much later and with much fear. hehe.

It's just the opposite with me. I always used the drive-thru when I was living back in the states. Here in Germany you can't find a drive-thru bank.

Ya. Only in America. Drive thru food, drive thru banks, drive thru drug stores, drive thru oil changes, and in my own area a drive thru small grocery (for milk and such). Whee.

Its because Americans are getting fatter and fatter... -.-' *Sigh*

Oohh Letti, I don't know what I'd do if I had to physically walk into the bank every time I went. UGH! Thank God for bank drive through windows! :-)

Monica said...

I drive thru everything, but YES I am American and I am skinny!!!!

My friend from Germany thought it was odd, and a waste of gas! So what if premium gas is $2.29 a gallon!
