Something Good- Day 231-234

I got pizza for dinner on Tuesday. It has been hot lately, so no one has wanted to cook. But I got a good deal on pizza, and we even had leftovers.

I gave a tour of my basement to a young couple on Wednesday. They are getting married in a few months and decided to sign a lease agreement with me! I do not mind doing Airbnb since we make pretty good money from it, but I definitely prefer the consistency of renters.

I went over to my friend’s house yesterday for a visit. We talked and played with her little boy. I always enjoy our visits.

Today we had a movie night and watched the new Dora movie. It was a fun movie and good to relax with the family after an exhausting week at work.

Also, PSA the coin shortage is real. If you have any excess coin, please consider taking it to your bank. We ran out of coin at my branch this week and have had to turn away all our business customers. We are giving the coin away as fast as we get it, and we are not getting our weekly shipments to restock our supply. Thank you in advance from banks everywhere!

Something Good- Day 189-190

It has been a couple of busy days at the bank. We have gotten out late every day and just had a lot to do. Then, I woke up at 3 a.m. this morning thinking about the federal coin shortage and how to continue serving our business customers. We have had to enforce limits on coin since our vault has been depleted. We have had a few customers bring in large amounts of coin though, which helps us continue to serve our customers. We even talked Costa Vida into bringing over their tip/coin bowl to trade for cash.

Even though it can be difficult to make sure we are able to continue serving customers, I am grateful for my coworkers. I had a meeting with my manager today, and she just expressed her gratitude for all my work. I am glad I have the team I have and the way we have been able to support each other through this.
