One of my favourite Seinfeld episode (if I can have just one) is the episode where Frank Costanza (played by Jerry Stiller) starts a PC Sales company out of his garage, and every time someone made a sale (not George, but that Lloyd Braun!) there was bell ringing , needless to say things get a little out of control and “SERENITY NOW!!!” (something I also yell a lot) was in great usage in that episode.
Why would I bring up such an obtuse TV reference, maybe I had nothing better to write (did I just hear a bell ringing ), or maybe it was because I was in my local TD Canada Trust branch and saw the following sign:
“… if you like the job we did ring our bell to show your satisfaction…”
(Or something like that). My wife dutifully rang the bell after visiting with the young teller she was at, but as I left, I rang the bell as well and pronounced loudly:
“That was for the banking machine it did a GREAT JOB as well!”
I just wish I’d yelled, SERENITY NOW! right after that .
