Me, at bank, to teller: "Hi, I was here on Friday afternoon, and I think I left a pair of sunglasses in here. Do you have a lost-and-found box?"
Teller: "Blue sunglasses?"
Me, excitedly: "Yes! Exactly. Sunglasses with blue frames."
Teller, rummaging around behind counter: "Hmmm, they're not here ... Hey, Matt, did you lock up a pair of sunglasses?"
Matt, aka Teller #2: "Sunglasses? Let me check out back."
Matt comes back. "Nope, no sunglasses. Sorry."
Me: "So ... you don't have a pair of sunglasses?"
Matt: "No. Sorry."
Me: "Ummmmmm ... okaaaaaaaay ... thanks?"
WTF? The first teller knew my sunglasses. He remembered them. But then Teller #2 said nope. No sunglasses at all.
I know I left those sunglasses at the bank. I walked in with them; I realized five minutes down the road that I no longer had them. And I mean, they were dollar store sunglasses, which is why I didn't go back right away, but still. They were pretty dollar store sunglasses, which is why I went back at all. And sure, it could happened that the next person in line behind me saw the sunglasses sitting on the ledge and scarfed them, but Teller #1 remembered the sunglasses, and yet did not contradict Teller #2 who said no sunglasses.
I guess ... enjoy your new sunglasses, Teller #2? Although I do think they'll look kind of silly on you, having blue frames and all.
