    Older 100 dollar bills

    Stopped in at K mart for a few things.

    Used an older 100 dollar bill. From 1985. They kept saying they can't find the micro strip. I kept telling them that they didn't have micro strips in 85. Took 20 minutes for someone to say ok to accepting it.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    You really need to "turn over" the money under you mattress every so often
    Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime.

    Give a man a capacitor, doesn't know what to do. Teach a man to install it, now he knows everything.

    I love it when you go into the same effing store that you have been going to for 5 years and the same moron you have been seeing for that same 5 years still asks for your ID when you use the same credit card you have been using for 5 years. Brilliant.

    I stopped using cash a long time ago. I got tired of what you went through. So Im in home depot and I have access to counterfit $100 bills. So my master plan after printing all these counterfit $100 bills was to come down here to home depot and buy a box of wood screws.

    Stupid self checkout lanes at Home Depot can"t register the older bills. This means someone has to come over and do a manual override, boy, now THAT'S a real time saver and sure does cut down on the number of employees needed for checkout, NOT!

    The check thing is a real PIA. Checks for Joseph, Joey, and even Jo. Many a teller has had to endure my wrath about this.

    As far as counterfit bills. Just take them to the casino and drop them on the table. The casino takes the bills at the end of the night and puts them in a box that goes to the bank for shredding, or investigation.

    They should be happy to see a bill that was once actually worth that much!



    BTW...Happy Birthday!
