This story's a month old, but my coworker didn't talk about it where I could overhear it until today, so there. Here you go!,1,76004.column?coll=bal-local-columnists

    PUT YOURSELF in Mike Bolesta's place. On the morning of Feb. 20, he buys a new radio-CD player for his 17-year-old son Christopher's car. He pays the $114 installation charge with 57 crisp new $2 bills, which, when last observed, were still considered legitimate currency in the United States proper. The $2 bills are Bolesta's idea of payment, and his little comic protest, too.

    For this, Bolesta, Baltimore County resident, innocent citizen, owner of Capital City Student Tours, finds himself under arrest.

    Finds himself, in front of a store full of customers at the Best Buy on York Road in Lutherville, locked into handcuffs and leg irons.

    Finds himself transported to the Baltimore County lockup in Cockeysville, where he's handcuffed to a pole for three hours while the U.S. Secret Service is called into the case.

    Have a nice day, Mike.

That reminds me of these $2 bill stories from snopes.

It's amazing how un-knowledgeable (what's the word I'm looking for here?) some people can be about currency. I worked in a retail store during the Christmas season in 2001. This was within a year or two of the first re-design of the $20 bill in the US. Someone paid with an "old" $20, and the kid I was working with freaked out, wondering whether or not it was real. The things weren't that old, yet he had no idea if it was real. Incredible.

Sometimes when you're card shopping, a card beckons to you - DEMANDS you open it and read the sentiment inside. I can't quite explain what it was about *this* card - maybe it was the use of the word "NICE" - but I had to pursue further.
