Of course with hundreds, the MOD had to verify that the bill was legit. Each bill was legit. Except the drawer ran out of change for the third guy, who then complained for 10 minutes, demanding that we go to the bank and get change. Again, this was at eleven at night.
Finally he paid with a credit card. I'm not sure which is worse though for a $5 purchase.

I am NOT ashamed of my purchase and I am happy to report that Big Mickey still enjoys a prominent place in my home. Well ... not so much "in" as out in back ... behind the shed ... where his tummy is now home to a family of raccoons.
Best money I ever spent!

Mock the hat during the day BUT when it gets dark then you have to stop and not mock the hat!
And I like how when we say "the hat" we all know what which one! I've always wanted to be part of an inside joke!

I took my senior trip to Disney World, a little over twelve years ago (yikes!). At the then MGM studios, in the heat of summer, I purchased an Indiana Jones leather jacket. It was over $400 dollars and worth every cent. I still have it and love wearing it in the winter.
