Here’s a quick test to determine whether or not you work in a bank.
Imagine this situation. You find yourself a bit short of money over the weekend, so you jump on IM to your friend and type:
I need to borrow $100 million over the weekend; I'll pay you back on Monday, promise!
How does your friend respond?
Answer key after the jump.
If you answered A, then you probably don’t work in a bank (or you work in a bank with a very liberal policy on instant-messaging programs).
If you answered B, then you probably work in a bank.
