As children we were fascinated by those tubes at the drive-in at the bank. It was the closest thing to sci-fi technology we regularly encountered in our suburban lives. Needless to say, it does not sit well with us that some Florida derelict has decimated this grand technology with his urine. 'Tis a noble tube, sir, not some common urinal.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, a customer pulled up to the drive-in lane at the RBC Bank in Palm Coast yesterday at about 8:50 a.m. The man asked the bank if they sold money orders. The teller informed him that they did not. The man reacted upset and muttered something about bad costumer service before driving off.
Well, at first that's all that the tellers thought he did.
When the next costumer pulled up she pulled out the tube and noticed it was full of liquid. The liquid spilled all over her lap and into the car. The liquid smelled like urine.
Yep, dude had peed into the tube.
The angry customer has not been found, but he could face second degree misdemeanor charges of causing a nuisance injurious to health.
As disgusting as the incident may be, it is a refreshing change of pace to hear a story of something horrible happening to a bank not perpetuated by the bank itself.
