More Toms

I got some more $2 bills. I only got about fifteen, six of which I kept. (Four were consecutive 2003-series bills.) I’ve spent two of them so far, but it doesn’t look promising. One got put the bottom of the singles pile and the other got put under the register tray.

Speaking of Where’s George, I got no reaction from the Where’s George shirt, although I plan to wear it again next week. I don’t really know what I was expecting.

I have been getting a lot of new counties and even a new state. I’ve been wondering what the best way to go about getting new states would be. It’s a shame that I didn’t know about the site when I went to my brother’s graduation. With all of the people gathered in one place and likely to soon spread out, it would have been perfect.

I’ve been wondering where the best place to find a marked bill would be. Banks would be the obvious choice, but I have to think in terms of bill density. If I’m going to break a twenty or a fifty, which place would most likely give me a bill as change?

I got one at a Chili’s recently. When paying with a twenty, I got eleven singles back, one of which was marked. I’d think that restaurants are a good bet. Places where employees get cash tips seem to attract a lot of marked bills. The thing is that I can’t really just go in there and ask for bills as change. If I ever go back by myself, I have to make it a point to pay with a large bill.
