    Bank tellers failed 2nd grade math

    Multiple times I've had to correct the error of extra cash or short. I normally will even out to nearest 5$. And today she counted 20,40,60,80,90 and 100 and I caught it really quick. Does this happen often with anyone els.

    People make mistakes.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Yup.

    Told a teller once that she had given me too many $100 bills....

    You should have seen the other two nearby teller's heads snap around.

    She denied it, but I made her count them again....after which she had a new attitude.

    Always keep your eye on which shell the pea is under.

    Keep on Rollin' !

    I had that happen to me once, for an overage... the teller gave me back 4x $100 bills when my change was supposed to be 4x $20 bills, the teller blushed, she was new. I can understand sometimes, like sagittarius98 stated, people do make mistakes.

    Being a bank teller can get pretty redundant just counting money all day. They stop paying so much attention after a while 'cause it gets so boring.

    It is good that you told her about her mistake. The tellers are responsible for the money in their drawer. If there is a shortage at the end of the day, she might have been to make it good out of her own pocket.

    I have had them make so many mistakes that I try to do their jobs for them anymore. I try to keep everything in round numbers and I make sure that I know what I have rolled and what the final total should be. I don't know how much I might have lost before I realized that they were making mistakes, giving me to much money which I always gave back and I'm sure I got shorted trusting them to be able to count. Now they know I know and they struggle to get it right but still make mistakes both ways.

    the bank is liable, not it's minimum wage employees.

    That is my guess.

    Also, if you KNOW the teller has overpaid you, then you need to be honest. It's the friggin bank, ultimately, you will not fool them.

    If at the end of the day the teller comes up either short or over, the drawer is recounted, usually by the head teller. All of the transactions will be reviewed, the cash in and cash out tickets, everything. If it's a significant enough amount, the security tapes might be reviewed. Often times the customer will come back a day or two later, explaining that he got too much or too little.

    If the error cannot be found, the action taken depends on the amount. If it's a minor amount, say less than $20 (from what I can recall), no action is taken, other than rebalancing the drawer. If it's a significant amount, $20 seems to stick in my head for some reason, then the teller gets a ding on their record. Enough dings and you get fired. If there's any evidence of foul play, you get fired and prosecuted.

    I once had a $20,000 shortage. I was working in the armored car division, and I came up short $20k - in food stamps. Food stamps are treated as cash, only they can't be reused. I ended up having to take a lie-detector test to prove that I didn't steal them, even though they were worthless! Turns out that they were later found in another bag that a different teller processed and didn't tell anyone she was over until the next day!
