“We trust banks with our money, but they don’t trust us with their pens”

Banks often have their pens chained to tables. Many people have pointed out that we trust banks with our money, but banks don’t trust us with their pens.

“seriously.. .have you ever noticed that we trust bank with all of our money.. yet they dont trust us with their chained down pens.. LMAO” was posted on Twitter by “Yellow is the Color of Sun Rays” on May 12, 2010. “You know whats bullshit? The pens connected to those chains at the bank. I trust the bank enough with my money but they cant trust me with a their pen” was posted on highDEAS on December 1, 2010. “We trust the bank with our money but they don’t trust us with a pen” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on April 27, 2015. “We trust banks with our money but they don’t even trust us with their cheap pens” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on September 27, 2021.

“I’ve robbed banks before…and they’re never getting their pens back” is another saying about bank pens.

You “trust” banks with your money, but they don’t even trust you not to steal their pens.
