I Hate Being Single Episode 3: The Banker
One of my favorite Episodes. The story of this episode is very close to real life.
Last year I met a banker at a chase in the city whose name is Norbert. He was so so so nice. We would talk about goals, dreams, life, movies. I did sign up for a new checking account but it was a free upgrade! I would stop by his Chase often on my way home from getting groceries at Trader Joe’s. Over the course of hanging out with Norbert he told me what my name meant, recommended a pizza shop, an inspirational book, and a dvd store to me. We talked on the phone a few times and he would leave a voicemail, talk about something bank related and before hanging up he’d say, “Seriously, go see Suckerpunch.” which was in theaters the time. The last time I saw him he came to our stand up show in Brooklyn. It was a good time, and we hung out, he met some of my other friends. He was glad to get out of the city and meet some “creative” people. One day I emailed him about another show and it got bounced back. I called Chase asking for him and he was gone! He left the branch! They don’t know where he went. He’s not on facebook. I’ve searched for him before. So if anyone out there knows Norbert Delva from Chase let him know I’m looking to hang out! He knew I was doing an episode about him too, he gave us some of the promotional materials on Rob’s desk. He’s a good dude and I’m sure he just ended up at a better job. I wish he’d let me know where though!
