huh,

I went to the bank today. Bored while standing in line I casually turned my attention to the old man in front of me. Just any old guy. Gray coat, an old-man-hat, a plastic bag from a nearby grocery store hanging from one hand and his wallet in the other. Nothing special. I proceed to look at my shoes instead. His turn. He puts the plastic bag on the counter and starts whipping out piles of money, ridiculous amounts like I've only seen in movies before. "I want to deposit some money" he says. "I've got 750 000 in 500 kr bills. Is that okay?".

That was pretty weird. And it took a while before I got to empty my account of the last 42 kr I had.
