It Isn't Real Money, Anyway

So some moron at Best Buy doesn't recognize a $2 bill and winds up calling the cops and having the customer arrested. It's bad enough that too many employees don't know their own company's stock, but to not recognize American currency is beyond the pale. What compounds the whole thing is that apparently no one recognized it for what it was.

Worse yet, the people in the Baltimore County police department weren't any better, and had to call in the Secret Service to verify the validity of the bills. Quoth Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world." Yeah, but do they have to be stupid?

We can only hope that Mike Bolesta sues Best Buy and wins big time. It would be a delicious irony if the court made them pay him in $2 bills.
