Having the exact change or even having coins to ride the public transportation in Jordan is quite a dilemma. I was once denied service at the Post Office because the person working there didn’t have exact change for the stamps I wanted to buy. Everyone in Jordan knows how difficult it is to find coins.
Behold one of the best man-made inventions:
You feed the machine a paper bill of $1, $5, $10 or $20 and the machine will give you back the equivalent in coins (i.e., quarters). No need to go from shop to shop begging business owners for a change. Brilliant invention indeed!
These machines are mainly at self car wash and at washers and dryers businesses. Most apartment complexes here have a big room with many coin operated washers and dryers for the residents. Parking meters are also operated by coins.
This is another machine made to make peoples’ life easier.
