Can I tell a story I've just heard somewhere else?

Ever try talking to someone who isn't really listening?
That’s how our tellers feel when the faces in the little boxes on the screen seem bored or walk away to do something else. The person may be listening, but it doesn’t look like it. Tellers are really grateful for smiling, responsive faces in those boxes! Please remember to push the "mute" button when listening so background noise doesn't interrupt the story. If you choose to comment on a story, please remember to be supportive as well as discerning.
Got a story to tell but not quite sure it’s ready for prime time?
