    Oh yeah, I remember those $2 bills very well!

    Just shows how alienated the younger generation is with the past!

    Actually, I went to Military School in the late 70's, and we got $5 a week as an "allowance", it was always 2 $2 bills, and a $1 bill.... so I have had a long history with the bill. I also worked in the canteen, and took in plenty of the $2 bills. When we went on the road for sporting events, etc. seemed like we always got the "huh" look when we tried to pay with them....

    Spent a month in Canada last year, and their smallest bill is now a $5, but they have loonies and twoonies, $1 and $2 coins.... That was a bit strange to give someone $10, and get back all coin for just a small purchase....

    Yes its different in Canada, course I had to drive through it to get where I live now in Alaska, they have different priorities for the people.

    Our monetary system is a bit funny in retrospect, in the future I suppose we will just use barter or "credit" chips.

    When my dad was working at his company, they got $2 as a reward for ...umm... not quite sure!
    It was always a brand new, crisp $2 bill. I think we have a stack we could sell to the guy in the story!

    And all that's best of dark and bright

    Can you believe that the manager and the employee are both functioning members of society?!?!?! I just can't believe that someone could be that clueless....

    I've got some!

    I've got 2 $2 in my wallet right now. Been in there forever and I just can't part with them for some reason. Funny story though. Sort of makes me want to go and spend them.

    That's weird that the manager of a store didn't even know there was such a thing as a $2 bill!! Haha... like someone would go through that much trouble just to "steal" a one dollar burrito.

    Of course they're not functioning members of society. They work at Taco Bell.

    I have tell you a story, yesterday I stopped by the Cove Bar, and these two lovely ladies came up to me and introduced themselves, and asked who I was. I admitted to being "me", and it made their day. (Too made they were married, otherwise it would have made my day . They also happen to be big fans of Al! Had a wonderful chat, and they were kind enough to pick up my beer tab (Thanks again ladies!) Kinda weird to have "groupies"

    A few years ago, my dad would always give me lunch money for school. Since a lunch would usually cost about two dollars, he would go into the bank every so often and trade some larger bills in for a bunch of $2 bills.
    Believe me, I was the only kid at school who not only used $2 bills to buy lunch, but used them every single day.
    Considering how that was only a few years ago, though, I can only assume that they're still making fresh $2 bills.
