Just Tossing Money Away
A few weeks ago I stopped by my bank and asked the girl behind the counter for thirty brand-new one dollar bills. After she figured out that I wasn't actually kidding, she told me that they didn't have any, but offered to go through all the money in her drawer and pull out thirty bills in the best shape that she could find. Now, I know that I've made cracks about living in a small town, and I can tell you, it's not always fun residing in the middle of nowhere. That said, sometimes living in a small town rocks--like when you ask the bank teller for new bills and she takes the time to sort through hundreds and hundreds of dollars just to get you thirty crisp, fresh(ish) bills.
