Sharon,

I bought admittance into a garden right afterwards. I handed the lady one half of the bill and asked if she could change a ten. She laughed as I handed her the other half. She said she would be glad to take that off my hands. Now that's customer service!

Charles,
I used to work in a bank. If you have at least 3/4 of the bill (meaning the whole portrait and one whole serial number), it is considered legal tender. The bank eventually will send it to the Federal Reserve to be destroyed. Just so you know, not that it would have helped you at McFryKing! :)

Thanks Lori. My mind is thinking the next time I get change from a McFryKing joint is to "Monk" the bills I get in exchange. This one looks dirty and this one has a serious crease in the middle and this one has unlucky numbers in the serial number. Do you have a newer bills this one is dated 2009... If you find yourself behind me better change lines! :rofl:

People who are late for appointments and then want to be first in line, Road construction on weekends ( Common around here all summer long) and getting to the arena and my press pass isn't there even though I've been on the list all season long.

You guys are cracking me up (esp. you Chas). Let's all get in our cars and drive slow in the fast lane and even slower in the slow lane and meet up at the nearest McFryburger w/ scrunched up dollar bills and bags of pennies.

Verbosity. Repeating what others said almost verbatim just to hear themselves talk (or post) with our adding any new info. :nunu:

Ringing a costly phone number then having to listen to an automated menu that you have to select from, only to be put though to a sub menu that you have to choose from, then being told that "all our operators are busy right now (substitiute that for we only have one person answering the phones) please call back later or hold for the next available person" , drives me nuts and bye bye to about 10 pounds.

Having someone borrow something from you, but you have to deliver it to them, and then retrieve it when they are done with it, or you may never see the item again. (Sorry, it's not really a small thing, more like a 6-foot thing that annoys me, my brother-in-law.)
