I've just been to the bank. (Insert round of applause and cheering here)
To describe my outing as a marathon seems an exaggeration, but to The Initiated, to Those Who Have Gone Before, it's the reality of a certain Suva bank. We just smile and nod. I put a dollar in the meter for parking, thinking, one hour and 15 minutes should easily cover it. Such optimism.
As I gazed at the sea of people waiting to be served, I saw a huge business opportunity. Customer entertainment! Popcorn sellers, art or macrame classes...guitar lessons would be good. Learn a song or three while you wait. Basketweaving, perhaps, for those who have been waiting the longest?
