  • The $2 Bill

    I have no idea if this is a true story or not but it wouldn't surprise me much if it is;








    Unfortunately these are our ciitizens of the furure!!







    THE $2.00 BILL I TRIED TO SPEND:


    IF YOU'RE AS OLD AS I AM, THIS IS A RIOT!


    Everyone should start carrying $2 bills! I am STILL laughing!! I think we need to quit saving


    our $2 bills and bring them out in public. The younger generation doesn't even know they
    exist.

    STORY:



    On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat. In my billfold are
    a $50 bill and a $2 bill.





    I figure that with a $2 bill, I can get something to eat and not have to
    worry about anyone getting irritated at me for trying to break a $50 bill.


    Me: 'Hi, I'd like one seven-layer burrito please, to go.'


    Server: 'That'll be $1.04. Eat in?'


    Me: 'No, it's to go.' At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it kind of funny.


    Server: 'Uh, hang on a sec, I'll be right back.'

    He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot. The following conversation
    occurs between the two of them:


    Server: 'Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?'
    Manager : 'No. A what?'
    Server: 'A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me..'
    Manager: 'Ask for something else. There's no such thing as a $2 bill.'
    Server: 'Yeah, thought so.' He comes back to me and says, 'We don't take these.


    Do you have anything else?'

    Me : 'Just this fifty. You don't take $2 bills? Why?'


    Server: 'I don't know.'


    Me: 'See here where it says legal tender?'


    Server: 'Yeah.'


    Me: 'So, why won't you take it?'


    Server: 'Well, hang on a sec.'

    He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I'm a shoplifter, and says to
    him, 'He says I have to take it..'


    Manager: 'Doesn't he have anything else?'
    Server: 'Yeah, a fifty. I'll get it and you can open the safe and get change
    Manager: 'I'm not opening the safe with him in here.'
    Server:'What should I do?'
    Manager: 'Tell him to come back later when he has real money.'
    Server : 'I can't tell him that! You tell him.'
    Manager: 'Just tell him.'
    Server: 'No way! This is weird. I'm going in back.

    Themanager approaches me and says, 'I'm sorry, but we don't take big bills this time of night.'

    Me: 'It's only seven o'clock! Well then, here's a two dollar bill.'


    Manager: 'We don't take those, either.'


    Me: 'Why not?'


    Manager: 'I think you know why.'


    Me: 'No really, tell me why.'


    Manager : 'Please leave before I call mall security.'


    Me: 'Excuse me?'


    Manager: 'Please leave before I call mall security.'


    Me: 'What on earth for?'


    Manager: 'Please, sir.'


    Me: 'Uh, go ahead, call them.'


    Manager: 'Would you please just leave?'
    Me: 'No.'
    Manager: 'Fine -- have it your way then.'


    Me: 'Hey, that's Burger King, isn't it?'



    At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone around the corner.

    I have two people staring at me from the dining area, and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect. A few minutes later this 45-year-oldish guy comes in.




    Guard: 'Yeah, Mike, what's up?'


    Manager (whispering): 'This guy is trying to give me some (pause) funny money..'


    Guard: 'No kidding! What?'


    Manager: 'Get this. A two dollar bill.'


    Guard (incredulous): 'Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?'


    Manager: 'I don't know. He's kinda weird. He says the only other thing he has is a fifty.'


    Guard: 'Oh, so the fifty's fake!'


    Manager: 'No, the two dollar bill is.'


    Guard: 'Why would he fake a two dollar bill?'


    Manager : 'I don't know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?'


    Guard: 'Yeah.'

    Security Guard walks over to me and......

    Guard: 'Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you're trying to use.'


    Me: 'Uh, no.'


    Guard: 'Lemme see 'em.'


    Me: 'Why?'


    Guard: 'Do you want me to get the cops in here?'

    At this point I am ready to say, ' Sure, please!' but I want to eat, so I say , 'I'm just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill.

    I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I'm taking a swing at him. He takes the bill, turns it over a few times in his hands, and he says, 'Hey, Mike, what's wrong with this bill?'




    Manager: 'It's fake.'


    Guard: 'It doesn't look fake to me.'


    Manager: 'But it's a two dollar bill.'


    Guard: 'Yeah? '


    Manager: 'Well, there's no such thing, is there?'

    The security guard and I both look at him like he's an idiot, and it dawns on the guy that he has no clue and is an idiot ..

    So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and some of those cinnamon thingies, too.



    Made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what happens when I try to buy stuff. If I got the right group of people, I could probably end up in jail. You get free food there, too.



    Just think...those two will be voting soon


    ....YIKES!!!

    Too late, we already have a nation full of them.

    There is a small liquor store near my house and the owner is on some kind of two dollar bill kick. He gets a lot of them from the bank and encourages people to take them as change and circulate them. Yes, they are legal tender and more importantly, "Yes" a lot of folks are that stupid. How difficult is it to know what our currency is and even who is on the bills?

      That is funny and probably true.

      My oldest daughter works at the pinnacle 18 movie house (yep 18 screens) I have taught her to look for the good coins and paper money.
      She brings hope half dollars about once a week and every now and then a silver dollar, a five dollar silver certificate a one dollar gold certificate, several foriegn coins and a few two dollar bills.

        I have Brenda pick me up two dollar bills from the bank all the time. I use them as the outside bill of my money clip so I don't wear the big bills out.

          oh yeah! well try this next time you're at Home Depot

          when the cashier tells you how much your purchase is....

          and you go for your wallet .....

          with a straight face as you pull out "cash"

          Say.. "you do accept Hawaiian dollars"???

          Then wait for the fun to start.


          For those of you who are unaware....Hawaii is one of the 57..oops 50 states and
          they use the same money we do on the mainland!

              The money clip is a throwback to my contractor days. I always carried it but rarely needed it. It is loaded with hundred dollar bills, some of which are older than some of my grand kids. I rotate out the two dollar bill about every six months.

                Good story Mark. Makes me feel good to know there are folks "loaded" with hundred dollar bills just walk'in around.
                I purposely carry a lot of money so I don't get killed over some paltry sum should I get mugged.

                    LOL-The trick is I have never really seen it as "money". It has always been for that late night emergency when I needed materials or whatever. In other words it was not something I would pull out just to stop at Taco Bell (except for the $2 bill of course).

                          Re: The $2 Bill

                          funny as i was just telling mark this morning about how i met an electrician at taco bell a number of years ago.

                          i saw his truck parked outside and already knew he was an electrician. he ordered his meal and went to pay for it with a $100 bill. of course they don't accept that bill. he turns back in line and ask if anyone can break a 100.

                          i tell him sorry, i'm a plumber, that's all i carry is $100 bills

                          can't remember if they gave him the food or i put it on my tab but i did meet a nice electrician that i worked with for years.

                          funny as mark and i talked about this, this morning

                              i tried to get 1, but the bank doesn't let them go. i think they are used for bank to bank transactions.

                              i wouldn't mind getting an atm casette. last i heard they are packed with $20,000 in 20's. even more on the weekends.
