Faker Fiver

I can’t believe it. For the first time ever, I was asked to give another five dollar bill because the one that I have gave to the cash registrar was apparently… a ‘fake.’

Or so she claimed. I found out later that the five was completely real. And if she really believed it to be fake, by law, isn’t she suppose to keep it so it can be turned into the police?

The bill was torn a little with tape over it. I’m thinking she simply just did not want it because of that reason alone.

I’m stumped, really. As I suppose I’ll never know if she was telling the truth.

Man… all this trouble. And all i wanted was my morning java.

    Several weeks ago, my friend got a fake 10 dollar bill. I think it was missing the silver down the side of Sir John A’s head.

    A couple of weeks later, I got a weird looking $10 in my change from a McDonalds. I asked them if they had one of those UV bill checkers, and they gave me a different $10, no questions asked.

    There seems to be a lot of weird looking bills, so I don’t blame them for questioning your bill.

    I worked at Wonderland many moons ago, and at one point, the policy was to accept bad bills, and call security (I guess to catch the person passing bad bills). Later, they asked us to ask for a different bill, because for each counterfeit bill, they lost money.

    A sharp cashier should be able to spot the bad bills, but maybe the cashier you dealt with was being over-cautious.
