Cashier: "We only have $1,000,$5,000 and $10,000 bills" : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

"And change for $1,000 once per withdrawal." Get the idea?

Wait,..your experience is that your bank had nothing but 1,000 dollar bills? What are you presupposing? Facts, please.

-- Donna Barthuley (, March 29, 1999.

interesting, none of the banks out here in DC wonderland are doing that - ye olde yuppie foodstamps (a.k.a. the new $20.00 bills) are in plentiful supply.

Using the ATM at a bank like that would be quite a thrill. How do the neighborhood groceries or 7-11's cope when folks try to pay a $37.85 tab with a $5,000 bill?

More likely they'll just cut you a check for the amount you want to withdraw. No rules say they have to give you cash... .

What is this nonsense? $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 bills are no longer being issued. And there are too few still in circulation for a bank to be using them.

You're predicting hyper-inflation, right?

Typical doomsayer.
