Man in the posture of a beggar: Thank you for your kindness… for depositing my money… without charging a fee.
Banker: Next person… Hurry up!
Sign above him: Deposit
On the building: Bank
Caption: Must appreciate their kindness… it’s not a negative interest rate yet.

[Refers to the TMB Bank’s decision on reinstating its savings interest rate to 0.125% after originally cutting it to a zero rate. This sparked a public outcry in a nation where savings is the key way people save to pay for major purchases and retirement (as opposed to credit and government programs as in the West).]
