The 8 bags of 1 jiao [10 cent] coins Ms. Wu brought totaled 10,000 yuan, taking 18 bank employees working from 9am till 6pm to process only over 5000 yuan of it.

2012 September, Ms. Wu was dining at a rice noodle restaurant. Due to the bowl being a little dirty, she had asked to exchange her bowl, but the restaurant employee refused to exchange it. After Ms. Wu and the owner negotiated, the owner agreed to give her a refund. After Ms. Wu exited the restaurant, a restaurant worker ran out afterward saying Ms. Wu had failed to give them 5 kuai, with a scuffle breaking out between the two. Ms. Wu received a brain contusion and her husband suffered three broken ribs. Afterward, Ms. Wu took the rice noodle restaurant to court. 2013 June, the court ruled that the rice noodle restaurant compensate Ms. Wu 68,000 yuan RMB [in damages]. After the ruling, the restaurant first paid 38,000 yuan through the lawyer. Around 5pm on August 9th, the person in charge of the restaurant called Ms. Wu notifying her to go pick up 10,000 yuan in compensation.

If it were me, I’d tell the other party that the amount was incorrect, then count them with the other party, and see if the other party had the patience.

Why not buy the coin counting machine my factory makes? It’s fast, accurate, doesn’t require manpower, and can even bundle/wrap [the coins] automatically.

Just use an electric scale and weigh it.

lontoken [网易浙江省宁波市网友]: (responding to above)

You may not have understood the bank’s intentions. Not only do they have to count the money, they also want to package the money, and of course also promote ICBC [Industrial and Commercial Bank of China].

The person who assaulted her is such a bastard!

ljt00001 [网易上海市长宁区网友]:

Just say it’s short 2000 kuai and if the person who gave the money doesn’t believe it, that person can count it again! Wouldn’t that work?

网易四川省成都市网友 ip:171.217.*.*:

Are the bank employees stupid cunts? Don’t know how to weigh it? Don’t consider it a hassle to count it all…?

50,000 coins / 18 people = 2778 coins / person
2778 coins / 6 hours = 463 coins / hour
463 coins / 60 minutes = 8 coins / minute

To the satisfaction of everyone, we can say these bastards in the bank finally have some work to do. Fucking every time I go to the bank and am waiting in line, I never see this many people [working].

uta1991 [网易台湾省网友]:

The bank not using an electric scale is because it is afraid of accepting counterfeit money. If by chance they really was fake currency, wouldn’t they still have to go through all of it one by one to find it?
