    ATMs are EVIL!!!!

    Something terrible is going on with ATMs.

    I had to stop and get $200 for a project we're working on, and the machine spit out ten $20 bills.

    They were NOT all dispensed the same way, front side up, with Jackson's head in the same direction.

    First, they CHANGE the $20 and offset Jackson's head, now they dispense $20 haphazardly just to mess with me?!

    What is this world coming to?


    ETA: I think this started happening when Trump was elected!!!!

    I used to work in a bank, and it makes me crazy to get handed cash, from anybody, but especially from the bank, that the bills are all cocky-wompus!

    That was not allowed back then! All the bills in my wallet to this day are in order from smallest to largest and all facing the same direction.

    Another thing that bugs me immensely is when a clerk just hands you a wad of cash, including coins, instead of counting the change out into your hand. Then you either have to stand there and count it, while the customers behind you get impatient, or walk away with it and then if it's wrong you've got to prove that you didn't mess with it after you walked away.

    Or shove it in your wallet and not bother.

    Never happens to me. If I were you, I'd just assume God hates me.

    Do you ever have a cashier try to give you change ... on top of the bills? I like to amuse myself by just dumping the change back onto the counter and watch as they scramble to pick it up.

    Yes, that's what I was referring to. I haven't tried dropping it on the counter, will have to!

    It's sure dumbing down cashiers. I don't think the younger ones could properly count change back if their lives depended on it.

    Trump fondles each and every bill, whispering cooing sounds to them as he does so.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Smile as you spill the coins, and neatly put the bills into your wallet. "Sorry, left my third hand at home this morning."

    They could if they were trained.

    True. But they aren't being trained. The cash register does it for them so they don't have to think.
