This one's amusing, but I'd chalk it up to ignorance as opposed to stupidity...

At a McDonalds once, I paid for part of my order with a $2 bill. The young girl behind the counter didn't know what to make of it, and called the manager over to ok it  :^D


Not sure what made me think of that, but I also thought it would be fun to get a couple stacks from the bank to troll counter help at stores. Maybe get a couple rolls of Susan Bs for added fun  :^D

I think you'll have to get Sacagewa's.  All the Susan B's are in a warehouse in Philadelphia due to lack of acceptance.  They might be sending the Sacagawa's there also by now.  

In any case, carry on with your noble mission.   :D

One time in the seventies, my father when to the bank and got $100 in $1 bills all with consecutive numbers.
He brought them back to our woodshop and cut out a piece of cardboard the same size as the dollar bills.
He clamped them down in line with this cardboard base and spread glue across the end of the stack.
The glue dried and all the bills were stuck to the cardboard like a note pad.
He then went to his favorite pub and when it was time to pay the bill for a couple of drinks, he'd pull out this stack and peel off enough to cover that round.
The crowd couldn't believe him when he said he just picked them up from the bank and that's the way they are handing them out now-a-days.
You could see a lot of heads turn on that one.

I had a friend whose father was very upset with their landlord.  They had been moved by Corning and could not wait to go back to TX so bridge burning was not an issue.  He would get his whole paycheck cashed in dollar coins, Susan Bs or whatever they had.  He'd pay his rent in coins and throw in quarters and other stuff to make it confusing.

Jim, several years ago our local bank made up stacks of $1.00 bills like that.  I always liked to get a "book" before we went on vacation.  Eyes would pop :o when I started peeling off dollar bills.

Lynn, I know that's not completely accurate.  
You would get the book of $100 bills.   8)
