Thank you, Cousin Saul!
So I go into the post office this morning to mail two packages.
CLERK: "That will be $21.40."
So I hand the broad a fifty dollar bill.
She looks at the bill.
She holds it up to the light.
Then she takes out one of those counterfeit bill detector pens and makes a mark on my fifty dollar bill.
She holds it back up to the light.
I look at her.
She puts the fifty in her cash drawer and hands me my change....two tens, a five, three ones and some coin.
ME: "May I see that pen?"
She doesn't blink. She hands me the pen.
I start making marks on the paper money. Then the coins.
CLERK: "Sir...what are you doing?"
ME: "I'm seeing if these are counterfeits."
CLERK: "Why would I give you counterfeit money?"
ME: "Why would I?"
I would just like to thank Cousin Saul for placing this idea in my head. I've been waiting to use it.
