Marked Again

I am not sure how prevalent this practice is but in my community if you pay for goods with a $20 bill or higher the store keepers break out this pen that they use to check if the money is counterfeit. The slash it and then it turns color if it is fake.

I am not going to lie it is kind of a humiliating experience to have someone that flagrantly doubt your credibility in front of a line of people in your neighborhood.

So I have started to bring my own pen to the store and check the change that I get back. It is just a black pen that makes it look like everything they give me back is fake.

I have made this lady go threw all of her $1 bills telling her to give me a different one because each of the previous was fake. Then had her convinced she was going to jail for money fraud...lol The pen doesn't even work on $1 bills...not that my pen worked on any bills..lol

Yes, this is how I amuse myself when left alone for too long.

-- They are not doubting you, they are doubting the validity of the bill. you wouldn't know if it was fake.
