Arrrr, Some Booty!

I was in line at the bank yesterday.

The man in front of me walked up to the counter, plunked down a wad of $50 bills, and said to the teller, "Can I get change for these bills? I'd like it all in gold-colored coins - Sacagawea dollar coins, please."

"Do they all have to be Sacagaweas?" asked the teller, opening her drawer. "I might not have enough. I have some American Silver Eagle dollar coins, the silver-colored ones. Are those ok?"

"No," said the man decisively. "They have to be gold-colored. I have a wooden chest at home, and I want to fill it with gold-looking coins so when people come over, it looks like I have a chest full of treasure."




A man with a plan. I like it! :D

I'd say "only in New York," but I think Vegas would get insulted.

For real? That's too funny!

Maybe he's going to sink it in his fish tank!

Think how much he could accomplish with his obviously ample time and wealth. ;^)

That's cool, but the cashier should have said "you already do sir"

We all have a chest full of treasure

It's true, each of us has a chest full of heart and that my friend is a treasue to be sure.

That's freaking awesome! It's also a good reason to never actually go IN the bank!

For real? That is *awesome*.
