An elderly lady handed her bank card to a teller and said, “I would like to withdraw 1,000 shillings. The teller advised her, “For withdrawals less than 10,000 shillings, please use the ATM outside."

The woman wanted to know why. The teller returned her bank card and irritably told her “These are the rules, please leave if there is no further matter. There is a line of customers behind you”.

The woman remained silent for a few seconds and handed her card back to the teller and said “Please help me withdraw all the money I have in this bank.”

The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and respectfully told her, “Maa'm you have 30 million in your account, but the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come back again tomorrow?"

The client then asked how much she could withdraw immediately. The teller told her any amount up to 1million. “Well please let me have my 1million now.”

After counting the cash on a machine, the teller handed her the 1million with a relatively friendly smile on her face.

The woman put 1000 shillings in her purse and asked the teller to deposit 999,000 shillings back into her account.
