Ya just can't make this stuff up! Short and sweet.





SUMTER, SC (WIS) -
Sumter police were called to an Applebee's last week after they received a report of a man who tried to pay his lunch tab with a $1 trillion bill.

Michael Williams, 53, tried to pay the bill with his debit card, but after it was declined, he offered to pay his tab with a $1 trillion bill, police said.

Williams was arrested on an unrelated charge of contempt of magistrate's court. He was sentenced to probation and ordered to pay $262 in court fees.

Police continue to investigate.

Common sense says that he should have started with small bills. People amaze me sometimes. He should have been fined extra money for being "The Village Idiot". A Tax for polluting the proverbial gene pool if you will.

I wonder what he will attempt to use to pay his $262.00 court fine. He may want to lower the denomination to a $100,000 bill.

Sounds like the police here in El Cajon, California.

The past 2 weeks I've seen the same 2 cops(driving in 1 car) drive back and forth in front of a Walmart in the parking lot of a mall and roll up on people as they smoke outside the store, detain them, and run their names for warrants....

....Really, nothing better to do!

Yeah, I remember reading about someone who tried paying for something with a million-dollar bill and got into trouble for it too.
You'd think people could take a joke.

Here this last week I was in the US on business and while visiting some friends we went to Walmart. When we went to check out I offered to pay the bill with a $500 dollar HKD note. The lady said that they had taken most of her change so she was unable to make change for it. She didn't even know that the US does not have a $500 dollar bill! At least the people at Apple Bee's knew that there wasn't a $1 trillion dollar bill but they might have taken the $500.

I wonder if she would have taken two $50 dollar and a $20 dollar HKD note?

I love the subtle clue of the Brooklyn Bridge being on the back of the "trillion" dollar bill! LOL
