Little Tiny Tables

So my bank was bought by another bank. New decor. New checks. And new tables in the lobby. You know-- the tables containing deposit/withdrawal slips. The tables with the awful, awkward pens tied to some kind of unbending plastic wire. However, the big New York bank sent my local branch little, tiny tables. Tables so small that only ONE person can use them at a time. Two if yer feeling friendly. There's no privacy, no place to put your purse, and even the calculators are miniscule. That's my pet peeve today. What's yours?
