Ran into a situation Monday.
It actually began Friday, when I received a $100 bill as part of a transaction.
The C-Note sat in my wallet all weekend. Then, Monday, I went to Hardee’s for lunch.
They don’t take $100 bills. Fifties either, as it turns out, though I didn’t have one those, so…
Anyway, there I was, with legal tender (for all debts, public and private), and I couldn’t spend it.
As it turned out, they take credit cards. So, I broke out my Visa card, and paid the bill.
But that $100 bill? Useless. At Hardee’s. McDonald’s, too. As well as Wendy’s. And all the other places a cheapskate like me eats lunch.
So, I can’t use it for food.
I’m wondering if I should accuse Hardee’s of being racist. I’m not sure why. It just seems the thing to do these days.
