This made me chuckle. I work at a bank and could easily see myself saying something like that even if I just met the person. But TBH I couldn’t care less if they actually brought in a picture. Plenty of people say things just to be nice or to make conversation.

Um..no. Yeah, I’d say that’s a bit odd too.

@LovelyLaura8:  Haha this has never happened to me.  I think I would feel completely awkward if someone I didn’t know asked me to bring some of my wedding photos in to their workplace to show them!

They’re probably just being polite… or perhaps they’re all “weddingbee lurker type people”…. we all oogle over the recaps here!!!

Sounds like they are just trying to sound interested. My coworkers say this too.

I think they’re just trying to be polite and show you that they value your business. I wouldn’t worry about it.

I think it’s wierd. But then, I live in England. We don’t try to sound sincere over here… we try to sound polite instead. It may sound like there’s not a huge difference… but there really is.

Being from New England, this sure sounds odd to me (though I realize they’re just trying to be nice).   Maybe it’s a regional thing?

I think everyone is just being nice. My brother works at a bank and he’s told me they try to create a bond with customers to encourage them to come back. I don’t think anyone is being weird, but just overly friendly!
