IF she ever comes back I hope her next experience is better than this one.

3) Customer who appeared to have her life savings in those brown envelopes banks use to put your cash in. AND she had to dig through half a dozen of 'em to find the money to pay for her groceries ... $5 out of one ... $20 out of another ... finds a third, nope not that one ... a fourth, nope not that one ...
