For example: Yesterday I went to the bank here in Cyprus. (This is one of THE main banks of CY.) Observations: Behind the tellers, their "safe" was open and UNATTENDED BAGS of MONEY were just piled all over the floor! It was difficult to hear the teller due to the BOOM BOX playing DISCO music behind her. This was my first experience with Greek Rap Music, but I digress... Most of the tellers had giant glasses of frappes with colorful straws in them. At one point we were helped by a man who looked quite official because he was the only person sitting behind a desk who wasn't eating. However, I'm 90% certain he was drinking a Mimosa.
Another man was sorting coins into a huge machine. The sound, which resembled Vegas slot machines, went on for the entire 45 minutes we were there. It sounded as though someone had hit the "Big Jackpot.” This suave multi-tasker was busy working AND chatting up the ladies.
Just before we left, a teller picked up the unattended piles/bags of money and placed them on the shelves of their “safe” and walked away, still leaving the safe open. (The safe was actually just a grey metal cupboard, like you’d get at Costco for your garage.)
The only thing missing was the Beer Pong. Wait, I think I've already used that line.
