I find your behaviour to be appalling. You have the manners of an orangutan. If you MUST argue with other members of this forum, kindly do it privately. And please, try to do it in English. Every time you post a comment, we have to guess what you mean through an ocean of bad grammar, first grade-like syntax, and laughable spelling.
Lastly, locals and tourists are not subject to the same exchange regulations. Get it through your head.
Become a local or go somewhere else. Problem solved. See ya
Any bank needs to do it. It´s the law. Don´t exchange money or comply to the law."Elpanada" said:Lastly nobody is subject to any regulations when it comes to exchanging currency in Argentina unless they ofcourse subject themselves to it cause there are many honorable places that don't ask for identification from anyone.
Seems fair that the ones who pay for the subsidies also are the ones who profit from it."sergio" said:I agree that some of the posts here can be petty, though not all. Someone commented that he would like to see a post from someone who went to a concert and enjoyed it. This is interesting because last year (I am not sure if the policy continues) the Teatro Colon charged DOUBLE the normal price for tickets to the operas. Tickets are normally expensive but when doubled they went as high as 1,000 pesos (Grand Abono performances) for non resident people - you need a DNI to prove residence. I think this is the sort of behavior here (and keep in mind that the Teatro Colon is municipally owned and heavily subsidized) that infuriates people. It simply isn't done in other countries and it is wrong, be it here in Argentina or anywhere else in the world. Someone else said "become a local". That is probably a good idea if you want to avoid some of these inconveniences but still there remains the problems of businesses that want to charge more to someone who has an accent. This can happen in other countries but probably more in Latin America than Europe or North America.
