I got totally shafted by them this past weekend, got my $10 bills and a big hulking $50. Where the hell am I supposed to spend that? At my deli where I get breakfast? No one wants to be the dick who pulls out the huge bill when they’re buying a Snapple, except for the person who’s being a dick by buying a Snapple for $50 with no hesitation.

I’ve only used a handful of ATMs that gave $10 bills. The Citibank ones in Chinatown and I have a vague recollection that the ATM by Water Street in the financial district also gave $10. It makes more sense for Chinatown to be like that since everything on the street is $10. That’s probably not the official reason, but I’d like to think it is.
