they only found out when they tried to make change and called the local bank.

Yes, actual money. Sort of.

Is there anyone both rich enough and stupid enough for this to be an issue? If so, I want to meet that person.

Subby is a retard for two reasons. He linked to a stub that links to the actual article and both the stub and the article say he was seen holding the bill, with no mention of him attempting to pay with it.

School administrators said the bill looked very real and were concerned it might be in circulation.

These "school administrators" are, without a doubt, far too stupid to be allowed to be around children and should be charged for whatever it cost the taxpayers for the cop time that they wasted.

They's responsible for teaching yours children!

However, $1 million bills are not in print or circulation.

And anyone who makes change for it deserves to lose their money.

O NOES! THERE'S A COUNTERFEITER!

Bullshiat. Like any counterfeiter would "advertise" by printing up something that not even a Taco Bell manager would fall for.

That's funny you should mention the 2 dollar bill subby, a friend of mine tried to use one at Taco Bell and they called the cops on him...
 
2011-02-16 07:50:29 AM
...

Really? You needed to get the Sheriff, the Secret Service, the FBI, NASA and the Justice League involved because some child was holding an obviously fake bill in a denomination that doesn't exist?

Did you call in the bomb squad, get all zero-tolerance on his ass, expel him and sue his parents for damages too?

/I swear to God, I don't understand why we allow our schools to be run by utter morons.

A year ago, the Orlando area was laying off cops big time, due to budget cuts. I'm glad to see the school are helping prioritize: school admin attention whores at the top of the list.

Yeah crap like this really makes me wonder about where the US is going. I had some idiot teachers in school, but generally I have to say I respect most of them, even looking back with what I know now.

Where are we going to be in 30 years with kids raised like this?

Administrators are so "covering their ass because the next lawsuit will kill us" mode that they overreact horribly to nothing.
They fail to remember that where we stand now with technology and the advent of all news 24/7 even if it's not news, even the tiniest of dumb non-issue they handle will be reported and posted about by thousands.

There are no "small stories" anymore. We know everything, all the time, from anywhere.

We have ourselves to blame for it, so when we get these overreacting people, they're just a by-product of our infatuation with the goings on of every person in every town in every moment of their lives.

or something.
regardless, these are dumb administrators

Maybe selling money at a discount wasn't such a good idea.

They sell these novelty million dollar bills on the concourse ar Reagan National Airport. They are the same size as normal bills and feel like very similar paper stock. The ink looks legit too. The front has the statue of liberty instead of a president (or hamilton)

I think they cost around a dollar.

Wait, wasn't Hamilton a president? I must've been thinking Franklin.

Another example of why I've abandoned teaching in American public schools. How many of the kids were dumb enough to fall for this? My guess? It rhymes with "Nero".

That kind of money could only be obtained through the illicit drug trade. The kid is obviously a kingpin, and the cops were entirely in their right to seize the money.

You ever drop a Susan B. Anthony in a vending machine in the late 80's? That's a sad realization later in the day.

quote from the article ...

"School administrators said the bill looked very real and were concerned it might be in circulation."

I'm scared that (apparently) well educated individuals would think this could be a real bill. I can't imagine anyone who received this as part of a transaction would even consider this is real.

If I gave this to the clerk at the local gas station, they wouldn't call the cops at first ... they'd just look at me as if to say "don't play games buddy, just pay for your junk and beat it." ... it just stuns me that the administration thought for even the smallest amount of time that this was anything more than gag money.

Administrators should now go directly to the unemployment line. Non-negotiable. Stupidity is not usually a pre-requisite for a "school administrator".

I think what HR meant to say was Stupidity is not usually a pre-requisite for a "school administrator", but it helps.

i'm pretty sure that $2 bill taco-bell story is younger than these novelty million dollar bills.

this is a story? seriously?
 
2011-02-16 08:52:30 AM
why the F**k do people feel the need to invite the cops in a harmless kids prank. Giving the lunchlady a million dollar bill is an old school prank not crime

trying to pass a bill that you know is bogus probably IS a crime.

I seem t recall an advertising campaign that printed out flyers that looked like a large denomination bill folded into quarters. When you picked it up and unfolded it, it was just a square and the other side was an advertisment.

They would drop these around town and prople would pick them up thinking "hey, free money" only to get a stinking commercial!
