Bank Teller – “Is there anything else I can do for you?”  Me – “Do you clean bathrooms?”

Getting ready for the Chicago trip with daughter and granddaughters required a stop at the bank to let them know I’d be using my debit card out of state.  When the teller asked where I was going she shared that she was from Chicago.  She asked a number of questions about what we would be doing and what, exactly, we would be looking for.  At that point the conversation got animated.

She recommended a restaurant, Lou Malnati’s, that served pizza with a meat crust for those eating gluten free.  That would be two of us.


Meat crust pizza, late in the game.

She also told me about a free app for my phone, findmeglutenfree, that would list all the restaurants in the area that had a significant number of gluten free items on their menu.  She enthusiastically gave numerous other tips to enhance our visit, obviously in love with her former hometown.

I was at the bank longer than the expected two minutes required to complete the business with my debit card.  But I left with more than I’d hoped for.  “At last,” I said.  “A bank that’s really full service!”  Got to go back and thank her.  More about the trip coming up!
