And what if every compartment is filled with $100 bills? That occasionally happens where the bank loads $100 bills where the $5 bills go.

I forgot where I read about a cop stopping a pickup with a suspicion of a traffic infraction, when they noticed a rather large device on the back. The cops asked what they had, and they said it was a "washing machine." Maybe, but only if they were laundering money. The cops looked closer and this "washing machine" had the letters ATM on it.

A code error? This machine needs to be replaced, then recycled.

That occasionally happens where the bank loads $100 bills where the $5 bills go.

Wouldn't They have to load $100's in the one, ten and Twenty slots also or you would just be talking some stupid stuff as Usual,....

I was merely asking you how much it would come to. No need to insult. And ATMs have no $1 slots.

Upon investigation, it was discovered, the ATM in question had been built with recycled parts, of a Vegas slot machine.

After failing to remember his password three times, instead of shutting down, the machine registered three lemons and began to spew the jackpot.
