I like messing with the kids sometimes...

The non-ferrous metals guy I deal with has a quirky sense of humor. He likes giving out $2 bills and 50 cent pieces if he has a chance. I took a little load in today and one of the bills I ended up with was a paper Mr. Jefferson. I stopped by a Hy-Vee on the way home to pick up a box of heavy trash sacks and went through the express lane. A very chipper young, probably college-age gal was checking me out.

I pulled out the deuce and she commented, "Oh cool a $2 bill" and then I took out three more ones, 4 bills on the counter but $5 in value. She just stood there for a second or two like she couldn't finish the transaction, so I asked her if there was a problem.

"Yes, the total is $4.78" and inferred she needed more money.

"Yes," I said, "there's five dollars there".

"Oh yeah, you have a $2 bill and I'm not used to them" she gushed.

We finished up our sale very pleasantly and as I walked out the door, I smiled to myself. Maybe I'm a bit quirky as well...

Classic Chieftain!!!

I like the deer-in-the-headlights look while they're holding a 50 cent piece wondering what to do...

Yeah, that's funny :)

I don't burn Ike dollars anymore because most are worth more for collectors than face value. I almost never see them in circulation anymore, along with any 1964 and pre 90% silver coins or any pre-1971 Kennedy half dollars. Most are squirreled away for their silver content (most of the Ike dollars didn't have any silver in them though) or for collectors.
