Advice for the New Bank Teller:
When meeting a customer for the first time, do not ask her how far along she is. Unless someone is obviously eight or nine months pregnant -- DO NOT ASK. That woman may just be fat and carry her weight in her stomach. That woman may work full time, may be closing a business, may be trying to figure out how not to go broke, may be raising two children under three, and may not be able to figure out how to fit in working out when all she wants to do is sleep between the hours of midnight and 6 am. She also may have had an eating disorder in her prior life and be very uncomfortable in her skin right now.
