Depositing Just a Few Bucks
Depositing the few checks I get now and then is always interesting, because I never know quite what the teller will say about them, if anything.
You see, pretty much the only checks I deposit with any regularity are either a few for $3 each or else reimbursements from my flexible spending account, which can be as little as $25 each.
I deposited a few checks like those this past Friday. The teller asked if I had any plans for the weekend, and I said “Oh, just working.”
“Where do you work?” he asked.
I replied with the type of company I worked for.
He glanced down at the checks and said, “I hope this isn’t what they’re paying you!”
Of course, it isn’t. The number of times tellers comment on my small deposits really makes me wonder though. Do people not deposit small amounts anymore? Or maybe it’s just that people don’t deposit many checks period anymore. What’s your experience?
