Phony as...

Thought y'all might enjoy this:

http://newsobserver.com/news/story/...p-2634600c.html

The Associated Press


"ROANOKE RAPIDS -- Police are searching for a man who paid for $150 in groceries at a Food Lion grocery store with a $200 bill.
The man walked out of the store with his groceries and $50 in change before the fake bill was discovered Sept. 6.

The bogus bill -- the U.S. Mint does not print a $200 bill -- bore the image of President Bush on the front and had the White House on the back. It also included signs on the front lawn of the White House with slogans such as "We like broccoli" and "USA deserves a tax cut," Roanoke Rapids police said.

Instead of being labeled a Federal Reserve note, the fake bill was marked as a "Moral Reserve Note." The bill bore the signatures of Ronald Reagan, political mentor; and George H.W. Bush, campaign adviser and mentor.

Food Lion said normal policy is not to accept bills over $100."


I'll hazard a guess that my ex-husband has finally found gainful employment - at the Food Lion!!

I can't believe that the cashier accept the bogus bill despite the policy forbidding bills over #100. I find it hard to believe that he got away with it!

This does not surprise me at all. This clerk obviously belongs at the top of the food chain.

That was a bit of sarcasm. The clerk is probably a college grad who couldn't find a job in his/her field...

I don't think so. I suspect you were just wrong and are trying to play it off.

I wouldn't have been surprised if it were a stupid teenage girl.

If you are trying to insult me, you need to work a little harder than that.
