2 dollar bill

The next is a *true* story. It amused the hell out of me whereas it was
occurring. I hope it is not a type of “needed to be there” issues.

$2 Bill at Taco Bell
$2 Invoice at Taco Bell

On my method dwelling from the second job I’ve taken for the additional vacation ca$h I
want, I finished at Taco Bell for a fast chew to eat. In my billfold is a $50
invoice and a $2 invoice. That’s all the money I’ve on my particular person. I determine that
with a $2 invoice, I can get one thing to eat and never have to fret about individuals
getting pissed at me.

ME: “Hello, I would like one seven layer burrito please, to go.”
IT: “Is that it?”
ME: “Yep.”
IT: “That’ll be $1.04, eat right here?”
ME: “No, it is *to* *go*.” [I hate effort duplication.]

At his level I open my billfold and hand him the $2 invoice. He seems to be at it variety
of humorous and says

IT: “Uh, grasp on a sec, I will be proper again.”

Civic road workers – Your tax dollars at rest

He goes to speak to his supervisor, who remains to be inside earshot. The next
dialog happens between the 2 of them.

IT: “Hey, you ever see a $2 invoice?”
MG: “No. A what?”
IT: “A $2 invoice. This man simply gave it to me.”
MG: “Ask for one thing else, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A $2 BILL.”
IT: “Yeah, thought so.”

He comes again to me and says

IT: “We do not take these. Do you could have the rest?”
ME: “Simply this fifty. You do not take $2 payments? Why?”
IT: “I do not know.”
ME: “See right here the place it says authorized tender?”
IT: “Yeah.”
ME: “So, should not you’re taking it?”
IT: “Effectively, grasp on a sec.”

He goes again to his supervisor who’s watching me like I’ll shoplift, and

IT: “He says I’ve to take it.”
MG: “Would not he have the rest?”
IT: “Yeah, a fifty. I am going to get it and you may open the secure and get
change.”
MG: “I’M NOT OPENING THE SAFE WITH HIM IN HERE.” [my emphasis]
IT: “What ought to I do?”
MG: “Inform him to return again later when he has REAL cash.”
IT: “I am unable to inform him that, you inform him.”
MG: “Simply inform him.”
IT: “No method, that is bizarre, I am stepping into again.”

Only in America – Ever Wonder Why

The supervisor approaches me and says

MG: “Sorry, we do not take large payments this time of evening.” [it was 8pm
and this particular Taco Bell is in a well lighted indoor mall
with 100 other stores.]
ME: “Effectively, this is a two.”
MG: “We do not take *these* both.”
ME: “Why the hell not?”
MG: “I believe you *know* why.”
ME: “No actually, inform me, why?”
MG: “Please go away earlier than I name mall safety.”
ME: “Excuse me?”
MG: “Please go away earlier than I name mall safety.”
ME: “What the hell for?”
MG: “Please, sir.”
ME: “Uh, go forward, name them.”
MG: “Would you please simply go away?”
ME: “No.”
MG: “Effective, have it your method then.”
ME: “No, that is Burger King, is not it?”

At this level he BACKS away from me and calls mall safety on the cellphone
across the nook. I’ve two individuals STARING at me from the eating space, and I
start laughing out loud, only for impact. A couple of minutes later this 45 yr
oldish man is available in and says [at the other end of counter, in a whisper]

SG: “Yeah, Mike, what’s up?”
MG: “This man is attempting to provide me some [pause] humorous cash.”
SG: “Actually? What?”
MG: “Get this, a *two* greenback invoice.”
SG: “Why would a man fake a $2 invoice?” [incredulous]
MG: “I do not know? He is kinda bizarre. Says the one different factor he has
is a fifty.”
SG: “So, the fifty’s faux?”
MG: “NO, the $2 is.”
SG: “Why would he faux a $2 invoice?”
MG: “I do not know. Are you able to discuss to him, and get him out of right here?”
SG: “Yeah…”

Safety guard walks over to me and says

SG: “Mike right here tells me you could have some faux payments you are attempting to
use.”
ME: “Uh, no.”
SG: “Lemme see ’em.”
ME: “Why?”
SG: “Would you like me to get the cops in right here?”

At this level I used to be able to say, “SURE, PLEASE,” however I wished to eat, so I
stated

ME: “I am simply attempting to purchase a burrito and pay for it with this $2
invoice.”

Who is the laziest person in history

I put the invoice up close to his face, and he flinches like I used to be taking a
swing at him. He takes the invoice, turns it over just a few occasions in his
fingers, and says

SG: “Mike, what’s improper with this invoice?”
MG: “It is faux.”
SG: “It does not look faux to me.”
MG: “But it surely’s a **$2** invoice.”
SG: “Yeah?”
MG: “Effectively, there is no such factor, is there?”

The safety guard and I each checked out him like he was an fool, and it dawned
on the man that he had no clue.

My burrito was free and he threw in a small drink and people cinnamon issues,
too. Makes me need to get a complete stack of $2 payments simply to see what occurs
when I attempt to purchase stuff. If I acquired the suitable group of individuals, I might in all probability
find yourself in jail. No less than you get free meals.
