As you recall, the Grand and her friend and I took all my change I have saved for almost three years to the big Green Coin Machine at Hells Gates of Wal Mart. When I found out they would charge me a service fee of .10 cents on the dollar I said, "No Way Hosea!"
Today I took all the change to Wells Fargo. A nice young man Jonathan helped me carry it all in. I asked the tellers if they wanted to take bets on how much but was told they aren't allowed to gamble or bet at the bank. I thought that was funny. Angie and Jonathan took all my money into a side room where the noise began and lasted a long time. Angie came out and asked me how much I thought I had.
I said, "Ooohhh, $350 -$400. I really thought $450-$500 but decided to play back. She told me it was already past that and there were bags left! I got giddy.... When the tinkling stopped she walked out and said, $763. 43 cents....how would you like that? I said, "HUNDREDS PLEASE MAAM!"
Now that is some happy news for today.
