How about buying a few things from the man? He has to pay the bank for his change.

He should sell Metro cards, lure customers in the store maybe they will purchase something else. Posting nasty signs wont help business, but then again who will be able to read them?

Sorry, I should mention it's a laundromat.

When will our buses start accepting bills? Does the MTA really expect people to have $5 in coinage to take an express bus to manhattan?

I wouldn't be too inclined to do business with someone who's such a nasty asshole. What's the big deal about cultivating some good will and helping potential customers out with change if they need it.

Oviously people who need change for the bus are not stopping by to do their laundry.

The owner is a crank, but who knows how many times he's had his coin machines emptied by people he'll never see again? Merchants pay for every roll of coins they get.

My local mom-and-pop store no longer offers credit to, "ANYONE," credit to favored customers has long been a lifeline, but with a slowing economy a few deadbeats can ruin it for all. You'll see a lot less friendliness as merchants are squeezed by the economy, non-paying customers, and by their banks.

I am the owner of this laundromat and I am quite proud of my sign. I've tried for years to help people out with change, and to this day I would never turn down a customer who needed change for the bus. However, after trying endlessly to tell non customers that we need our quarters for the washers I have gotten fed up. Without exagaration - 10 or more people would come into my very small laundromat and demand quarters every day, 7 days a week and I am not in the business of going to the bank to supply quarters to people who have never even seen me or my store before the moment that they walked in for change. If they are nice or no other stores are open, I still give out dollar coins, but really this is not my job, but I do have compassion for nice people, not to mention that metrocards are sold 1 block away, but this is a world of lazy people. So, again, I stand by my sign and it's enforcement, the nicer toned signs were ignored to no end. This one has finally worked, most of the time, the only problem is, is that I only wrote it in English, and English seems to be unimportant in NY nowadays.
