The $2.00 Bill I Tried To Spend

    my cousin sent this to me, and it makes you think of how the younger adults dont have a clue!!!! THE $2.00 BILL I TRIED TO SPEND:

    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 look s 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 hav e 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.

    The manager 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: &n bsp;'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.

    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.

    When I managed a Papa John's I had several drivers from other countries. Several years after the currency changed a driver from another country was paid with an old $50 bill. The driver refused not because he didn't have change but because he accused the guy of trying to spend counterfeit money. The driver had never seen a bill larger than a $20 bill that looked like that. It blew up into a big argument where they called me and he got the same thing you did, a free meal.

    i've seen an american two before. thomas jefferson is on it iirc.

    in canada there were two dollar bills until 1994. just last week i got two of them in at work, plus i'm getting a lot more bills printed in the 60s and 70s being tendered. wondering if it's desperation over fuel prices making them dig into their oldest savings like a coin collection. someone on day shift got a canadian one dollar bill in, which is crazy, because that hardly buys anything up here. if i ever get rare forms of currency in, i always buy it up out of the till, because at the very least it's worth face value.

    :thumbsup:
