Grandma continues to fill the machine with more coins, and it appears the pair had hundreds of dollars worth of coins. In fact, the video showed that they already jammed one machine in the process of counting their funds.

The video ends with the pair in the car and Jayden holding up a thumbs-up to the camera.

In a follow-up video, Jayden shared that she was able to exchange the coins for $357. However, the bank Jayden and her grandma went to charge a 5-percent fee, which left her with $340.

“We don’t deserve grandparents,” another person commented.

Surprisingly, some folks only questioned why the banking institution took a percentage of the funds. However, other folks explained there are ways to get around the fee.
