I just got a get well card from my bank, and I can’t tell you what a pleasant surprise it was to receive. Since I’ve been with the same branch for a few years, I’ve gotten to know several of the tellers and the manager and they always have a nice, warm welcome when I come in. It makes it pleasant to do business there.
It turns out that one of the tellers has a son in the same lacrosse league as my son. Last month their two teams played each other and when she heard my son’s name mentioned she came looking for me. Unfortunately, I was missing a really exciting game. My husband explained that I was home with the flu and everyone was trying to avoid me so they didn’t get it too. I hadn’t had the flu in years and I can’t believe how long that miserable feeling lasts!
Well, a few days later, when my husband brought in the mail; there was a piece addressed to me. It was a beautiful get well card from the bank that the manager and all the tellers had signed. I was feeling slightly better by then, but the card was like a shot of medicine and really picked me up. How thoughtful of them to think of me and send a card.
When I returned to work, I mentioned the bank’s get well card to my boss and he decided to order some company get well cards to keep on hand for our employees and clients. I told him I’d be happy to be the one to send them out because I now know how pleasant it can be to get one when you’re feeling less than perfect.

A bank that sends its customers get well cards is unique. My bank is too busy sending fee notices to bother with greeting cards. I am tempted to bring a copy of your blog to the manager. Banks seem to have forgotten that we are customers and have the option of selecting another bank. That should be important to them, especially, these days. I would love to learn the name of your bank.
Recently, I tripped and fell in my office, and had a few lasting injuries. I have worked for the company for many years and have made many wonderful friends, so when I took a topple, my co-workers came running. I was instructed to recuperate at home by my doctor and returned to work one week later. Upon my return I found an envelope on my desk. Inside was a beautiful get well card from one of my favorite co-workers. When I read it, it made me realize that she had been thinking of me and truly wished me a speedy recovery.
