a very sweaty tourist ahead of me in the ATM line took very little time, then said go ahead to me. I asked him in German if it was OK, and he responded forlornly in English: "It doesn't take coins"
I said "yep, it's an ATM"
He said sorrowfully "then how do I buy a ticket?"
I directed him to the ticket machines which I hope he didn't try to extract money from
I had noticed he was aggressively clutching some coins in line but I guess I just thought "money stuff is related"
Expats, those who have left their home towns, travelers and freaks are especially welcome.
