Bank of America has a little alcove/kiosk thing in the corner of my local grocery store. Most grocery stores seem to have these mini-banks nowadays.

I wonder what the people who work there say when someone asks them where they work. “I work at the bank” they might say. But that’s a bit of a lie isn’t it? “I work at the grocery store.” Closer. “I work at the bank in the grocery store.” That’s long and awkward to say. And maybe they get a little guff about it, too.

“Oh, you couldn’t cut it at the real bank, eh?”
