Yeah, that's a US thing, not a New York thing...

And legal in Washington state. Dispensaries opening in Washington DC too.

Or just move to Amsterdam. By the way, is it legal in Australia?

Slightly off topic, but I have a huge jar of change I need to cash, and I've heard some banks don't take them (Chase specifically). I don't want to get on a subway with 45 pounds of quarters unless I know who will count it. Anybody?

TD Bank.

Used to be the case but now you have to be a TD customer. FYI - Coinstar converts your change to Amazon gift cards 100 cents to the dollar.

It's not legal in Australia, I probably will have given it up by then anyway.

 

In Australia you get a slap on the wrist from what I've gathered. Never been in any trouble.

So, for at least then tenth time in two years, all the GC (north end) escalators are out. These are not little day or week long outages, either, but endless six month affairs. For the second time on two of the cases, they built these huge wooden sheds around them. This was just done not a year ago in both cases and the escalators were supposedly completely overhauled (over the course of months.) And now they are already down again, for the same kind of major repairs.

In what management universe is this acceptable? Never mind, we all know the answer.

This city—really this whole country—is a joke. this great power, leader of the free world, and its greatest city, the financial capital of the world, cannot run an escalator for a full calendar year.

America the incompetent.

I've actually opened a $200 savings account at TD just so I can use the coin machine free.

well, it would actually be nice if they didn't block them off and let people use them as stairs but they don't. Insult to injury.

I don't often agree with you politically, but I am 100% with you on this one. We live in the greatest city in the greatest nation the world has ever known... And yet little things like this (or getting to the airport, or, or, or) are impossible.
