5. When I first read that I saw "What size balls are used?"
I was wondering what kind of difference that would make. :crazy:

10. bank teller. there was a campus bookstore that needed it for textbook buybacks
and i was assigned to bag it all up for them.

a half million dollars in 50's, 20's and 10's weighs a lot.

13. No, but Mr. Tikki was in Finance during his....
stint in the Army and when they still paid in cash.
He would watch on as they counted out
millions at a time for pay to units coming home from 'Nam.
It was vast...

25. My husband has and he said when it's all in $20's
It isn't nearly as much as he would have thought.

He used to work as an ATM tech in Denver and had every key to every ATM on the west side of the city. He also used to refill the things with cash thus the reason he knows.

I should aggravate everyone by telling the story of the time the police came up to an ATM he was re-stocking. They had their guns drawn and forced him out, then handcuffed him and beat him, but I won't. :7
