Got an email Monday morning saying that there has been a rash of the banks employees being harrassed. Due to the number of evacuees in the area, most want to know about their money. My banks employees have to wear name tags. We were warned to leave name tags off prior to leaving work. Also not to talk about where we work. There was also a note there to "protect ourselves" A few of our portfolio manager started carrying pocket knives. Including our CIO, my boss. So I start carrying one too at work today. Saw the CEO of the compnay on the elavator this morning, and he too had a folder clip in his pants pocket. So I guess, we can have knives at work now.
Matter of fact in some of the branches they started to hire armed guards. I was told that right after the storm hit, there was a branch that had a small riot in the lobby. Cops came and the branch had to shut down for the day. Wonder how they would feel about carrying concealed.
Getting crazy out there.
