This is an old story, but I like it anyway: Did you hear the one about the guy who tried to spend a $2 bill at Taco Bell?

Funny. I'm glad the guy stood his ground!I considered trying to buy things at a fast food joint (Micky D's is closest to me) with some of those golden dollars...

McDonald's and Taco Bell will take the silver dollars, I can say from personal experience. Of course, I guess that guy's story illustrates that it depends on the competency of the manager anyway.

Little known fact... the minimum bet at horse racing tracks used to be two dollars. The two dollar bill was a convenient way to wager up!

That is a bit bizzare... A friend of mine told me something similar to this happened to him at Taco Bell. He bought one burrito (or something that was under $2) and only had a $100 bill and a $2 bill. They didn't have the change for the $100 so he tried to pay with the $2 bill. The cashier told him that she couldn't accept it as it was fake. He argued with her, she got her manager, and the manger took the $2 bill and apoligized. I wonder if this is one of those urban myths that got blown out of proportion.
