    They're obviously fake. There's no such thing as a $2 bill. That's what I was told at the Taco Bell drive up window once. The young guy looked at me like I was trying to pass off a counterfeit! Left me speechless, lol...

    You should have insisted that he take them and wait for the police to arrest you for trying to pass counterfeit money.

    Nice to see a couple of two's in circulation.

    @eddiespin I would still be sitting at the drive-in waiting for them to accept it.

    Yes I like them. They make perfect stocking stuffers come Christmas time. Grandkids all think Santa is flying around with bags of funny money.

    If there's not a slot for them in the cash register they're not legal tender is what many cashiers seem to think.

    Just ask those cashiers where the $50 & $100 slots are ;)

    I like using twos but it's annoying having to perpetually deal with cashiers who are unfamiliar with them or struggle with where to put them. I used 15-20 twos a couple of months ago at one local business in particular. While at first the cashier was enamored to have been given them as payment he became suspicious of them and proceeded to give me the third degree.

    I was at first asked if they're real and then the cashier put each one through an electronic bill validator. Even after they all came back as legitimate he asked me, "They're real, right?" Half dollars and dollar coins also slow down transaction time as cashiers almost always proceed to read the lettering on the back to determine what the denomination of each coin is.

    I guess the moral of the story is that I'm always able to use twos and unusual coin denominations but at the same time it's just way faster to use "regular" currency such as ones, fives, tens and twenties.

    It might be faster but it's not as enjoyable.
