I visited my local JP Morgan Chase bank branch and bought a couple of rolls of quarters to put in my glove box, because you can't just drive around and raid your loose change anymore or you won't be able to leave your car for long. I asked the teller if it was common for people to request rolls of quarters and she said:
Every other customer seems to be buying rolls of quarters!
So I'm not the only one... maybe we will have a run on quarters in this town!
Given Chicago's high crime rate you might think that our police would be on to more critical tasks but I saw this guy who seemed to be checking meters. Maybe he wasn't, I am not sure, but I have been seeing the usual parking tickets plastered on cars.
