A customer who want to argue that today is not a bank holiday. He says it is a public holiday and not a bank holiday. I asked him if he had been to the bank today and he said "don't be daft it is closed today." #-o

I actually got asked today if the banks were closed today.

I replied exactly why do you believe they call it a 'Bank Holiday'? ](*,)

I get punters regularly wanting to pay me whilst we are driving at 20 to 30 MPH along the road (regulars with fixed fare or do the same journey often) or at traffic lights just as they are turning green
