    Gotta laugh once in a while!

    Thanks to my friend JJ for forwarding this to me. I needed a good laugh!

    {This is too funny not to be true! From young people who don't know how to make change to not knowing United States currency! The Food Server was probably age 15, and the the Restaurant Manager was probably age 16!}


    The $2 Bill. Everyone should start carrying them! 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 know they exist.


    On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat.

    In my billfold was 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."


    The Server goes back to his Manager (who has been watching me like I'm a shoplifter), and says to his Manager , " They guy 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."


    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: "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."


    So, the Security Guard walks over to me and says ......


    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 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, so?"


    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 Manager 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 food service workers will be voting soon !

    Hilarious!

    I think you mentioned this was a Taco Bell. Are their staff two tacos shy a grande meal?

    Very funny! I wonder when $2 bills were last made? My children know them because we save them but they are older than 15/16 yrs.

    Next time, give them one of these.



    If you really want to impress them, say "keep the change".

    They were introduced before the Susan B Anthonthy dollar Coins were sometime in the mid 1970's.

    That's cute! My aunt always tucked 2 dollar bills in our birthday cards. Same for my kids. Atleast theirs 2 kids that know there is such a thing as a 2 dollar bill.
