it is a figure of speech , some banks who have old fashion values will sort and wrap for free if you have an account, some will charge you period , the point is we are talking loose , un wrapped money , if it had been wrapped perhaps they would have accepted the money

that is the point he brought un-wrapped money

the guy was wrong he had to pay and he was pissed so he did what every child does try to get even and lost

i had something similar happen where i work, an old woman came in to pay her rent with coins she had in a box.
it was sad, she really needed someone in her family to take over for her.

besides we only take checks!
