I have not read all the threads but I heard this story many years ago, i am NOT sure if it is true or not but was assured this situation could occur.i
will give my opinion of what i remember.
Many years ago a customer was getting a lot of grief from his bank, and so went into his bank and said i want to take my money out of the bank,
the teller said all of it and he said no i will leave a pound in my account to keep it open, the money was counted out on the counter and said i dont
want all these notes they are paper,
the teller said this is legal tender and so you can accept it, he said NO this says it promises to pay me , i don,t want a promise, i want my money
and i want it now.
i want copper coins, because copper is genuine currency that has value.so i want all my money in pennies. voices were raised and the man said you
have MY money and i won,t leave until i have it all, he was asked to stand to one side , he said NO i am here first so serve me now.
The staff were sent down to the vaults and returned with bags of copper coins,and it was handed over to the man, the man said what is this!,this is
your money weighed out for you, the man said
NO i don,t trust you i want to see it counted out in front of me, and so the money was counted out, happy NOW?. NO i want to check it for my self,
after it was checked the man said i have changed my mind i want to put it all back in the bank, after a lot of fuss the manager agreed and took the
money back into the bank the man said NO i want you to check it all so count it out again. there could be a penny short, and i want you to know it is
