Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
If you’re going to spend counterfeit money, it might help to use a denomination that actually exists.
An unidentified man who asked a Giant Eagle cashier to make change for his $1 million bill learned that lesson the hard way, Pittsburgh police said Monday.
The man entered the store on Cedar Avenue in the North Side shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday. He walked to the customer service counter, handed over the bill containing the likeness of Grover Cleveland and asked for change, police Cmdr. Catherine McNeilly said.
The cashier refused and called the manager, McNeilly said. The manager told the man the bill was not real and the man asked for the bill back.
When the manager refused — telling the man the store had a policy of not returning counterfeit money — the man became enraged and grabbed an electronic funds transfer machine and slammed it against the counter, McNeilly said.
The man then reached for the cashier’s scanner gun, and the manager called police, McNeilly said.
I thought everyone knew that grocery stores usually can’t break a million.
What was this guy thinking?
