LOL! :

I would not doubt that that was real.

Back when the Sacajawea (sp?) dollar coins came out I made it a point to always get $10-20 worth in my pocket and spread them around. Just for kicks really.

I had people ask me what they were.

One guy thought it was a token.

I bought some milk at a convenience store and handed $4 to the clerk. She said, "It'* $4, you only gave me $1", thinking they were quarters.

After a while, I couldn't get them at the bank anymore. They stopped carrying them..????

We have a Ben Franklin'* uptown (a 5 and dime store) and I bought a model and gave the clerk (also the owner, hes a ignorant a-hole) 7 $2 dollar bills and he said he would not accept them because he can't make the right change, so I told him he had to take them, they are legal tender. Needless to say after that, he don't like me anymore.

One time I was ill and drove Jeff to walmart for some cold/flu stuff and I only had $3 in ones and I had 4 quarters and then about 50 pennies. They declined the sales. Jeff came out and got in the car and told me what happened. Talk about one pissed off sick woman!!! I marched in there and picked up the same package and went to pay for it with the same money (all I had at that time) and they tried to decline the sale with me too because the pennies weren't rolled in regular wraps- I told them I would be more than happy to stand there and count them out one by one, I created one hell of a ruckus and demanded the manager get there and the more they tried to tell me no the louder I got. I told them that those pennies were US Currency and by law they had to accept them. They finally caved in and accepted them. That still ticks me off just thinking about it.
