Won't this be a problem if you get the job and you can't creatively solve problems at the bank?
Ouch. I know that must have stung. Sorry. But don't let yourself get stuck in a situation that could come back to bite you.

I had this problem where I was filling out a job application but couldn't come up with a life experience to answer one of the questions so I utilized the internet to solve the problem for me with no original thought on my part. This shows that I am the man for the job!
Tell them you got creative to get an answer to the question by going to Yahoo answers.
I had this job that I enjoyed and I was very good at it. I was there on an intern position and was hoping they would hire me full time. I didn't make close to any of the others in wages yet was given a much heavier work load than the other employees. This work was handed to me by the employees not by my employer. They would hang out at the photo copier and the water cooler shrugging off their responsibilities while I was trying to complete this work load and feeling used. I knew my employer needed to know about this but I wasn't sure how til one day I saw most of the employees in the lunch room and it wasn't lunch hour. I asked my boss if she could meet me there so I could spread my work sheet out on the table to ask her something. When we arrived I said to the other employees (in front of my boss) "I hope I can finish all the work you have given me , I know you must be overburdened" I had brought the spreadsheet of all the jobs they had put on my desk. The boss picked up on this right away. I didn't get the other employees work loads after that either. *smiles*
