Anyway, the note from Saks said that, henceforth, it would not accept cash as a form of payment on store accounts in any amount over $350. Checks and money orders and online payments and such are fine, it said, but no bills or change totaling more than $350 in any one-month billing cycle.

New federal government regulations, Saks said, made this necessary. That aroused our curiosity, as no other company with which we do credit business had advised us of any such policy. Also, as far as we could tell, the currency that the government prints still says on it, ``This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.''

Is that even legal?

As the notes on the currency say...legal tender. I can see their point, but seriously, sometimes this can get ridiculous.

"Hello, terrorist hotline"

"Yes, I'm a clerk at Saks, and we just had an arabic man come in and buy a suit, who paid $1000 cash!"

"Oh my, I'll scramble an alert immediately!"
