I was heading to the kitchen at work to get tea, and stopped at the door of a co-worker to say hi/goodbye before our departure; her desk was covered in coins and bills. It looked like a piggy-bank had exploded!
Upon closer inspection, all this wealth was in Canadian funds. I enquired as to the source of all this foreign currency, and learned that our generous neighbors to the north make frequent contributions to our donation boxes.
Hm. I’ve been trying to find a place to get Canadian cash without getting dinged by horrendous fees, and she was trying to find a bank that would do the same in reverse. A deal was quickly struck, to the benefit of both parties. Thanks Nancy, that was too easy!
