I had better be careful with those $1,000,000 bills my son keeps getting at
the Baltimore coin show...

Puh-leeeze! Let the lady go, give here a free case of Coke or
something. Arrest the clerk on Grand Stupidity. The police too!

"COVINGTON, Ga. -- A woman was caught trying to use a fake $1 million
bill to buy $1,675 worth of merchandise at a Wal-Mart, and was later
found with two more of the bills in her purse, police said. "

...."Oh, yes ma'am, I'll just have to remove the cash tray to get to the
$100,000 bills to give you your change..."

I think we'll be seeing this woman in the near future as a cadidate for
a Darwin award.

How do you suppose they determined that it was a FAKE million dollar bill?

Did they compare it with a real one?

She'll be right behind the clerk, the manager, the arresting police
officers and any judge that does anything but throw this case out of
court and the arresting police officers in the clink for wasting the
Court's time.

A "fake" million dollar bill?

And how would you handle a lunatic who insists it's real and refuses to
leave? Keeping in mind that she is likely unstable and agitated. Add in
that you are a large corporation that gets sued at the drop of a hat.

Oh, that'll work. "I'll just wait then". )
You might have better luck telling her she doesn't have enough money.
