Who is Mr Tom

I was in a bank. Have an appointment with Mr Tom. The conversation went this way.

"Hello, how may I help you?"
"I have an appointment with Mr Tom."
"I'm sorry, but I don't know any Mr Tom here, are you sure your appointment is with our bank?"
"Yes I'm sure."

The guy went away and come back.

"I'm sorry but I really don't know any Mr Tom here."

Then he went away with his client.

Furious, I called Mr Tom. No want picked it up. I started to think that this Mr Tom doesn't exist in this bank. Call again, a guy picked up the phone, and it was the guy in front of me who was speaking!! He was in the room next to the reception, and something on his table display his name, Mr Tom.

There's no way I pronounce it wrongly, there were only 3-4 counselors in the bank. How can they don't know each other?


  1. BE, I feel for you !
    They either don't care about serving you [foreigner] or they either don't know the value of business.

  2. Yes, they lost my business. hehe

  3. Banks in France are a nightmare! I once got told that I couldn't put my own (maiden) surname (I didn't change my name) on the joint account that I shared with my husband because the computer system didn't allow it! Good luck!
