Thank You, Officer!

They say sometimes it takes just a little break from routine to lift you up and erase (if only temporarily) the stress and whatever it is that's weighing you down.

Well, today I skipped lunch to go to the bank for an errand and found that it did indeed help.

I needed to talk with a Customer Service officer and as I waited for my turn, I speculated over which one of the four would I get.

There were three female officers; the only male was tucked at the far left desk, hidden behind a humongous flower arrangement. I decided I would like to deal with the woman who sat in the middle.
The one on the right was much too serious; the one on the left talked too much.

I groaned when I ended up with the lone male. I was afraid I didn't bring complete documentation and it would somehow be less embarrassing, in my opinion, to admit that to a female officer.

But I took my seat and said to myself, Oh la la.

He was cute. A bit too young for me, ha, but he had the look I usually go for. Dark hair, a little slender and a smile that's just a little imperfect.

I didn't think much of it though - stress was sometimes that powerful. Normally I would tease cuties to death, LOL. And he was all professional, very polite and helpful.

As soon as he reassured me that the documents I brought were enough, I relaxed and waited as he processed things for me. People smiling at you can be infectious and I soon found myself smiling too.

And then as he wrote down my information, I started to notice his hands. Damn, men hands have always been my weakness. His were slender and clean, moving smoothly and sure across the white pages.

We chatted a while and I could see his genuine interest as soon as I told him I taught English. Probably interested in learning himself, I guess.

It was nothing really, not even a decent flirtation, ha, but it distracted me from a gloomy day.

I have been by again, Bonnie, the bank is in the same building as my office. A friend banks there too and I accompanied her when she needed to talk with a customer service. He was not there though, lol.<br />
<br />
I have no intention of following things up with him though. (I didn't even think there was anything! Sorry, I only thought of the encounter as a distraction.) I was in a relationship when that happened and right now, I am still coping with said relationship ending just weeks ago.

You wrote this story on February 17, I hope you found another excuse to visit him again. I can only wish. And if you haven't just go there for some consultation on your account or whatever but make sure you do go see him. Wonder if he is single or married but shouldn't deter you. Please write back, I am dying to know.

Yep, thebigmyth, sometimes it's all all it takes :)

Got no game at all that day! That was like, once in ten years!!!

Ur game was weak june lol

i bet it was! i would have enjoyed that a lot lol

Hahahaha.. it was nice for me!!

oh wow lol. nice :)

Ah, I am quite aware of that... Just slipped my mind, I think! LOL. I really should gather myself - I'm losing my touch!<br />
<br />
Not too much this year but I'm grateful still :) A roaring successful year of the Tiger to you, too Delta - ci xiang ru yi!

Woohoo.. another angpao! LOL. I do need money but prefer luck so much better!!<br />
<br />
Aw, Delta.. I didn't even think of it. If I did, so much the better!

*passes an Angpao over, this one doesn't jingle* Happy New Year June1999! Unfortunately I'm married and chinese New Year left us poor but hopefully with much luck. lol. <br />
<br />
Nice story June. Surely you'll need more help sometime soon! ;)

Naaah.. not foot in mouth moment, AP. It's the same here - only married people give angpao. Some argue that those who already earn money should too but we valiantly fight that idea, LOL.<br />
<br />
Oh la la, Marki!!!<br />
<br />
Yep, I remembered you when I wrote about the hands, tOs :)<br />
<br />
I am a champion at relishing these simple moments, frito - it's just this stress that has been pushing me into twilight zone.

Nice post June. What's wonderful is you noticed...and you appreciated. I so enjoy these simple moments connecting with people. He was professional, he was cute and sounds like a genuinely nice guy! thanks. :)

Oh no way, d!! I'll be finding excuses to come to the bank everyday and drive him out of the branch in no less than a month. LOL<br />
<br />
It's a nice distraction. Something to help ease the stress. My sushi man would, at the very least, glare at me if he ever heard a whiff of this, ha.

Aiyaaa.. AP, you're e-married so I should at least get an e-angpao! And I know about your addiction - that's why I have been avoiding you! LOL.<br />
<br />
Hi, WiB.. lovely to see you. I think I should really do a lot of breaking the routine deals - best thing I've done in a while! Hahahahahahahaha.. No, I don't think AP's looking at hands ^___^

Nice story june ... yes, those little distractions can really make the day special ... anything involving a man's hands does it for me too. As for Andrew, I don't think it's hands he's busy looking at do you?

Where's my angpao? *puppy eyes* LOL<br />
<br />
Gong xi, gong xi ni, AP, ci xiang ru yi. (I hope the spelling's correct!)

LOL True, oh la la..

hehe ''oh la la'' :P
