Funny or Tragic?

I can’t decide. This is an actual conversation that I had yesterday at the bank we have been with for nearly ten years. (They have always sucked, but this might take the cake.)

Me, handing over a $20 bill: Two rolls of quarters, please!

Teller vanishes for several minutes and when he returns hands back my bill.

Teller: We don’t have any quarters.

Me: Wait. The bank doesn’t have money?

Teller, clearly not seeing why this is a problem: You can try again tomorrow.

    Ha! That’s hilarious (and annoying, I’m sure!). My best reply I ever received when asking for a roll of quarters was, “Sorry, we only make change for account holders.” ??!!??

    That is tragically hilarious OR hilariously tragic. I chuckled whilst making this face: O_O!
