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
That's awesome. Arrr, ye can have my Sacagaweas, matey. I'll draw ye a map to my piggy bank.
Yes, I'm picturing this guy with a big treasure chest on his coffee table, showing it off to his friends. Buwhahahahahahaha!!
I'd say "only in New York," but I think Vegas would get insulted.
For real? That's too funny!
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"
That's freaking awesome! It's also a good reason to never actually go IN the bank!
For real? That is *awesome*.
