A man was denied entry at an SBI branch because he was wearing improper clothes. Ashish reported the incident on Reddit. He explained how he had an SBI account while in college. Apparently, Ashish's tax return was being credited to his SBI account so he decided to close it to avoid further confusion.
"I went to the branch today to get this done, as soon as I entered one of the peons at the branch asked me to come back wearing "full pants" as wearing shorts is against customer decorum. I asked him to show me where it was specified, and he said ‘we expect customers to follow basic decency'."
"I asked him to share with me any official rule or circular and I will go back. Another clerk interjected, ‘You go to the office wearing shorts too?’ I said, ‘This is your office, not mine, show me a dress code for customers and I will go and change.’ ‘Aisi cheezon ka circular nahi hota,' was the reply."
Ashish further wrote, "After a few moments of silence, a female clerk shouted ‘Yaha do female staff hai, aapko sharam nahi aati half pant pehen ke aa gaye aap.’ I retorted, ‘Aapko sharam nahi aati, bank mein aaye customer ke kapdo par nazar rakhte hue? Apna kaam karo na aap’."
To this the staff replied, "Aise logo ke muh lagna bekar hai, ab yahi kal nanga bhi ayega aur ladai karega." After all this, Ashish left the bank but it made him angry.
He wrote about the incident on Twitter and tagged the SBI official account.
This is his tweet:
Hey @TheOfficialSBI went to one of your branch today wearing shorts, was told that I need to come back wearing full pants as the branch expects customers to "maintain decency"
Is there some sort of an official policy on what a customer can wear and cannot wear? — Ashish (@ajzone008)
He received several responses on Twitter about the incident, many asked him to close the bank account and others criticized the bank staff for holding duch opinions, even in the 21st century.
