    $2 bill fiasco...

    Anyone ever tried to buy something with a $2? I have not, but I can see something similar happening as this.

    Wow.

    How about going into a car dealership and buying a car with $500, $1,000, $5,000 or $10,000 bills? Now THAT would rock them a bit.

    $2 bills are legal tender so isnt it illegal to not accept them?

    I have an entire roll of uncut $2.00 bills in a poster tube. Would love to cut them up and see if I can get the same idiotic response.

    a few years ago I saved up about $40.00 in $2 bills. Finally one night I went out with a few friends to a local bar and brought it all with me. I kept paying the cocktail waitress in $2 bills all night. It was pretty funny.

    In ancient times (1950's) military bases would occasionally pay the troops in $2 bills just to show the townies how much money they got from the base.

    Then there is the Loony - truly convenient, except that $1 coins just don't seem to catch on in this country.

    A buddy got a bunch before hitting the bar thinking he was being clever. Dollar draft with a dollar tip all in one bill.

    The bartenders thought he was gay. Aparantly in Georgia using $2 bills at bars means your gay. *shrug*

    They're more valuable as a sheet (or half-sheet) than cut.

    That said, you can try paying with the uncut sheet, I bet you'll get even funnier responses

    If you want them, you can usually go to a bank and get them. The site says there is 1.5 billion still in circulation and many banks still stock them. They were still printed just 4 years ago.

    A noody bar that i frequent had a 2 year anniversary last year and when you got change, they handed you back in all $2s it was kinda cool.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    Ah - how about going into a bar, and when the bill comes, pull out a roll of $2's and a pair of scissors - just cut off the amount you need.

    Better yet, get a pair of battery-operated scissors, carry them on your belt in a holster.

    That is just too funny and yet sad at the same time. I can see something like that happening when the Presidential dollars get more widespread into circulation. As in the cashier thinking itís fake or the customer is handing them fifty cents and not two dollars.

    My two story is as follows, my aunt inherited a house from a friend, during the cleaning up process she found hundreds of two dollar silver certificates in the attic, stashed under the insulation.
