Back in '65 this job required digital dexterity and math skills! You know, like figuring what the change should be!

I'm sorry, did I hear the term HEAD CHECKER?

I want to know where I can buy a big jug of dish soap for 0.69! Oh, wait... this ISN'T 1965...

The Star Thrower you couldn't be more correct. As the manager of 5 field offices for a credit union I kept hounding the head office about the importance of our ladies in the teller's cages. They see the customers one whale of a time more than anyone else in the office and should be acknowledged as the primary source of happy customers in their paychecks.
