MANILA – A glitch in the system of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) caused many to panic about the security of their hard-earned cash on Wednesday.

Nevertheless, others still managed to crack jokes in light of the error that, according to BPI, had “caused some transactions occurring between April 27 and May 2 to be double-posted as of June 6”.

Twitter user Ruben Jay Alvarez’s experience trended on Facebook and Twitter.

Twitter user Kim Charlie posted a photo of a supposed bank account containing P12.4 billion, saying the shocking amount wasn’t a glitch at all.

Twitter user morethanyell imagined what the scene was like in BPI’s call center. You can do it, guys!

Twitter user Lance Aldeosa had this message for those suffering from the hump day blues.

Twitter user Jimmy J, meanwhile, seemed to find it a funny coincidence that BPI had apparently posted a recent job opening for an IT security specialist.

And who wouldn’t turn the entire issue into a lament about love?
