A bank employee whose job it is to receive deposits from customers, and to facilitate withdrawals. Generally, they are found behind a counter, often with some sort of fence or window to help protect them from direct assault, and often wearing the same [[HatShop translucent green cap]] that accountants and card sharks wear. For many bank customers, this is the only employee they will see on a regular basis.

In the SituationComedy, the BankTeller is generally an ObstructiveBureaucrat, who makes the simplest transaction into an exercise in negotiation, resulting in long lines. Often punctuated by closing the window just as the protagonist finally gets to the front of the line.
