    Well that was a waste of time

    Why is it that every foreigner bank teller I speak with doesn't know what CWRs are but every American teller, or at least doesn't have an accent, I speak with knows right away? I always end up wasting 5 minutes of my time trying to explain what it is I am looking for only to have them walk over to a drawer and pull out the empty wrappers and then I have to further explain what I am looking for.

    I went to 5 banks over the last two days and the one American guy knew what I was looking for and I got $10 in cents from him. All of the foreigners had no idea at first and then told me that they didn't have anything.

    Not racist at all. I too have a hard time dealing with foreign accents, and those that speak broken english.

    There was no mention of race until you posted.

    I wasn't aware that "foreigners" counted as a race. It's really that the tellers who speak broken English or have a very thick accent seem to have a hard time understanding the concept of rolling coins and turning them into the bank. I'm guessing since they didn't grow up here they don't know about it?

    What really pisses me off is that I have one teller at a bank I frequent who I have to explain the whole concept of people buying CWRs every time I go to the bank. You would think after 2 or 3 times something would spark her memory when someone asks. I honestly think it's just laziness.

    most tellers, even the "foreign" tellers are always very nice to me, sure, it may take a little longer to explain something to them, but once they know about it, it's easy. I see no racist remarks at all either.

    I just ask them if they have any dimes or nickels I can get, they ask how many and I say all you can spare, 200-300 hundred. They usually pull out their trays of them and give me anywhere from 60 to 300 depending on how many they have, most times they are CWR with some new ones mixed in. I would rather get boxes of dimes than CWR as the count is off too many times on dimes, nickels are OK but I don't seem to ever find any Buffalos unless I get them in a box. "Do you have any nickels or dimes?"

    I have a teller at a bank who thinks it is very funny that I buy coins to look for silver. I never told him what I was doing but the guy is not stupid. I went to the bank and he handed me my first solid roll. when he gave it to me he said look my friend , they are all silver. I give to you. He was cracking up the whole time. I really think he thinks I am a idiot for coin collecting. But I bring him bagels and he gives me silver. I also can hardly understand anything he says. But I think its a great relationship. happy hunting to all.

    My apologies. I should have written bigoted....
    In any event it was a serious question that was met with honest answers. Subject closed.
