"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.

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?
