FAST FOOD, RESTAURANT | KILDARE, IRELAND | FOOD & EATING, MONEY ISSUES
Customer: “Can I get a cheeseburger and a bottle of water?”
Me: “Yes, that’s $3.70, please.”
(The customer holds out five napkins and starts counting them. He then hands them to me as payment.)
Me: “Sorry, do you have $3.70?”
Customer: *points at napkins* “Yea, there! Look!”
I’m not entirely sure if this is ironic or prophetic, but if the politicians and central bankers continue pouring money from their bottomless wallet, in their continual quest to find materials worth less than the currency coined from it, we may very well be using napkin-dollars.
At the very least, napkins will be more useful around the toilet than a wagon-load of $100,000,000 bills.
