I generally spend the first one I reach in and get.

When I need small bills, I always go to the strip club next door.

I can assure you that new and clean or used and dirty it spends just as fast in my world

Amos Quito: When I need small bills, I always go to the strip club next door.


During college, I worked third shift at a 24-hour gas station to make tuition. And the station where I worked was just up the road from one of T.T. Barr's seedier locations.

Anyway, there was this pair of "dancers" that used to come in every morning. And these were NOT the kind of dancers you fantasize about. There were the kind that only pass muster in small-town "gentlemen's clubs" where everyone is drunk, and the lighting is set at a permanent 10-watt wash. And these two would come tottering in with their streaky eye-liner, clumpy body-glitter and lucite heels at about 3 am. And they would pay for their microwave burritos, Doublemint and Dr. Pepper with lots and lots of really limp, damp singles.

I'm really surprised I didn't catch the clap just from handling their cash.

We also close Consumerist links faster because -- eww, I feel dirty having opened it. A bunch of incoherent ramblings from people whinging about their car warranty not covering driving into a lake and similar such crybaby nonsense.

Most people will accept any money, which is why I save the crisp bills for vending machines.
 
2013-04-01 07:48:08 PM
I actually organize my money that way. Most people face their bills all the same way, but I go one step further and organize my bills by denomination as well. And then further, the most used in that denomination goes to the front, crispest to the back.

I pretty much do the same thing, it's usually the singles and fives that are the most damaged, so they go on the outside so the rest will fold better when they're gone.
 
2013-04-01 07:57:20 PM
I generally use the $1 coins when I can, since they're untraceable.

That was exactly what I was thinking.  Give the nastiest bills to a human so I'm not stuck dealing a bus driver telling me if the machine won't take the bill I can't ride the bus.

I do the same thing. And I will swap new bills for older ones. I don't like the way new bills feel and they stick together.

Nobody's yet created a stripper with a built-in ATM slot.

I mean, I'm sure that's on the horizon, but it hasn't happened yet.

Like I know the condition of the money that the banks move around every time I use my plastic.

Would you prefer "a plethora of really flaccid, moist singles"?

2013-04-01 09:52:03 PM
it's the opposite with me.  the only thing i spend cash on is vending machines, and they only accept crisp, brand new dollars in my experience.  the flimsy dollars that have been handled too long always get spit back out, so i wind up keeping them until i can give them to somebody who needs change for a five.

But do you then organize them according to which Federal Reserve branch issued them, by issuing date, and by the alphabetical last name of the Treasurer's signature?

I had to wait in line for several minutes at Starbucks the other day because some guy couldn't find the right barcode on his phone. Meanwhile, I had exact change ready to go. The "paper money is quaint"ers can bite me.

DANG. You DO take it seriously.

The way my OCDADD works- I obsess over things until something else distracts me. For example, I'll meticulously fold my laundry perfectly, until I get lazy and let the rest wrinkle in the bottom of the basket. I'm special. :)
