Think about it, for just one second.
Today I had to drop off some money as a deposit. It was a modest about, $500. As is often the case they say they want money orders or certified checks. I didn't have time for that so I took in some cash.
I told the woman it was the deposit I had to drop off and what it was for. She repeated the request for money or certified checks and I said I had cash, I had, of course, confirmed with someone earlier that I could do that.
When I said cash the woman looked baffled. She turned to the other receptionist and asked: "Will the bank accept cash?"
I kid you not.
