Bigfoot in The Bank
Daniel W. Kneip
The very idea of a Yeti working at a bank probably seemed quite insane, but Mrs.
Teller, the branch manager of the Oakland Oaks National Bank, thought the Yeti
gave an excellent interview, although she was slightly bemused by his references
- one was a tree and the other was a hiker that the Yeti found and ate.
"But I’d like to have a second interview," she thought, charmed, clearly, by the
So two days later, and after repeated attempts at trying to contact him (she
actually had to go to the woods and shout at the top of her voice, "Yeti, will
you come back on Thursday for a second interview? Thank you!") the Yeti
returned, this time with a red carnation in his chest hair. And that just about
knocked Mrs. Teller right off her heels!
Now the second interview actually proved useless since Mrs. Teller already had
it in her mind that she would just have to hire him.
"The second interview is merely policy," she told him, to which he responded in
slurred speech, "What’s that."
But she told him to come on back first thing Monday morning, if he could, and
begin work. He said okay and headed back to the woods.
And Mrs. Teller was just beaming! Everyone knew she must be in love or something
with the eight-foot tall beast, but the truth was that Mrs. Teller was a pure
businesswoman and if there was one thing she knew, it was that no other bank had
a Yeti working there and people would come from over the hills to see him!
"And we’ll get them all to open new accounts!" she laughed madly!
And so, Monday morning, it seems Yeti showed up extra early, as Yeti’s tend to
do. Now the bank was still closed and the doors were well locked. So, not
knowing any better, but eager to start work, Yeti tore the door open and walked
into the bank.
Of course, the alarms blared and Yeti screamed and the police arrived and
fearing for their hides, open fired and Yeti was, sadly, withdrawn from the bank
in small bills.
