I hate it when someone comes in with american money. I have to actually check the damn bill's number to see what it is. I love canada's coloured money. Makes things so much easier.
Agreed! When I was in NYC I had to scrutinize my money to make sure I was using proper amounts, rather than just looking at the colour.
I also hate American money only because of the people who use it at my work.
9/10 of them don't courteously ask if we accept it and just assume that we do and hand it over like they would Canadian money, which is something I find intensely rude.
Especially seeing as when I was last in Buffalo me and my friend hadn't changed our money because we were only going to be there for a few hours and weren't expecting to spend any. He asked the waitress at the restaurant if they accepted Canadian money at face value (at the time the Canadian dollar was above the American) and the waitress said, and I quote, "Uhhh, no
. This is America. If you want to use Canadian money use it in Canada."
She said it in such a rude way me and my friends were all taken aback by her audacity. Whenever she came over to check on us she got ignored by everyone except me.
I just can't help myself from saying please and thank you, even when someone has been rude to me.
Stupid proper upbringing! *fist shake*
In the end the bitch (and that's explaining her attitude lightly) got a 5cent tip. A CANADIAN 5cent tip.
