A man, irritated with service at his local bank, withdrew 1 yuan (14 cents) at a time to agonize a bank worker, resulting in the police being called to resolve the conflict, the Shandong Business Daily reported.

The young man in Jinan, Shandong province, told the paper that he found only one counter open for business when he came into the bank where five people were waiting before him.

"I go to ask a worker why there is only one counter in use, but he shows a cold attitude," the man explained.

The bank worker countered: "I don't think he had waited that long. The reason why there was only one counter open was that we were having an afternoon break then."

As the customer kept withdrawing one yuan at a time for an hour, the bank informed the police, the paper said.

"We had no other choice, because he didn't violate any rules of the bank. The policemen came only to persuade him to stop," a bank worker said. "We hope our clients don't take desperate actions but instead communicate with us directly," the worker added.
