    Cash converting machines - 28th Jul 10 at 11:39 AM
    (apologies but not sure where to put this)
    In my local supermarket there's a machine that people tip money into and get money back - it charges them about 9% I think for doing this...

    It strikes me as the most insane thing on the planet to do. You can get the bags from banks for free and put the money into the bank and there's no charge!

    Why do these machines exist? Are people that stupid or lazy to think it's ok to pay 9% of their money to have it counted?

    Should they be banned? I think so! Or should I just consider it a "tax on stupidity"?
