I had a cashier in the ville czech one of my five-dollar bills. "Who would bother to counterfeit a five," I asked. "Who would bother to check," she answered.

Ville being just a stone's throw from Old Mexico might have had something to do with it.

When someone checks my bills with the marker, I ask if I can borrow the marker to check the cash they give me back.

Seen counterfeit money before. A company I used to work for had machines in all the Federal Reserve Banks that sorted and checked for counterfeit "notes" then shredded the counterfeits. Was at a chain liquor store picking up an order for a catering job my mom did. This buy walks in with a $20 that was pasted over a $1 bill. They caught him when he went to pay. The guy tried to dash out but I was about the 4th person to grab him. The cops came and the cuffs went on.

I use credit cards, never debit cards - but I absolutely draw the line at anything regarding smartphones.

I wish they'd do away with ALL coins. Just round to the nearest dollar.

I have to work to earn the money that turns into coins, then work for them AGAIN by storing, sorting, rolling and lugging them to the bank. Never tried one of the machines that you dump your change into and it spits out bills, but I'm tempted. Might be worth the fee they charge.

I used to have one of those sorting/rolling machines but it jammed more often than Remington ammo in a dirty .22 auto.

I was in a group the other evening and made some comment about going to the ville, several got a puzzled expression.

Guess you had to have been there.

I have a 5 gallon plastic water cooler jug that is just about filled to the top with coins. based on the last time I cashed out when it was half full, I probably have about $3000 worth of coins. I used to go to TD bank and they had a free coin machine. But some jerk complained the machine was off by 18 cents , complained, sued and now they got rid of the machines. ruined it for everybody. My bank, Bank of America, will give you a heavy duty plastic bag to dump the coins in. Write your account number on the bag, they send it out to be machine counted and the money deposited in your account. No fee. I'll probably need 3 bags. I'm just waiting for my grail watch to come in and off the coins go towards payment of the watch. Last time I cashed out I got a Cooper Phoenix in 243. Now I'm on to watches.

Bank coin counting machine & true story...

I will share a true story with you.

My local TD Bank in Sebastian Florida had a coin counting machine. I had never used one before, but brought in a large jar of coins. I asked the Teller what I had to do to use the machine. She told me to dump in the coins, the machine would count them and issue a slip with the amount on it. I would then take the slip back to the Teller to be redeemed.

I took my coins to the machine and dumped them in. The machine took a while doing it's thing and after a while, the coins had all disappeared and slip came out in the amount of $77.43, which I took to the window. The Teller asked me how I wanted my money and I replied, "In quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies"
