Meanwhile, I loved my job as a clerk. My first day on the job, I was nervous and anxious but also excited. I could feel that my life was about to change. I met so many different people with so many titles that I wondered if I’d be able to remember them all. I was introduced to the branch manager, operations manager and senior teller, just to name a few.

I also met my direct manager, Mr Chikolwa, who told me that my job was to balance credit and debit vouchers and help at the reception. When a client would come in, they would either make a deposit or a withdrawal, and the teller would issue them either a green or a pink slip, respectively, to process the transaction.

My job was to count the green and pink copies and make sure they balanced.
I could not leave for the day until they were balanced, which would usually end up being before 4.00 p.m.
