Nicest bank teller ever!

So today I went to transfer some money back home to payoff my student loans. I got the same teller I had had a few months ago, and she remembered me! My job, how long I had been in town, how I might make regular transfers, everything I told her last time!

She even made small talk after making the transfer! I was surprised I almost didn't know what to say. It was maybe the first and only caring conversation I've had at a business in Nagoya. I was expecting a transactional conversation, but I got a genuine conversation instead!

That was a great surprise today. :) Hope I get the same teller next time!
