Random Thoughts

Thoughts while shaving

by jtierney

Doesnít neatness count anymore?  I remember when I handled cash many, many years ago, we were taught to have the bills all facing the same way, picture side up, highest denomination on top, and all the dogears smoothed out. I can understand the average person not being too particular about how their bills are faced or folded. My daughter would pull a bunch of cash out of her pocket that looked like a head of lettuce. However, people handling money for a living should be setting a better example. Even the cash is coming out of the ATMís every which way and dogeared. Old habits are hard to break, I guess, because whenever I get new cash, I have to rearrange the bills and smooth them out or I canít count them accurately and Iím embarrassed handing anyone a dogeared bill.  Of course, cash will probably be a thing of the past someday with credit/debit cards used for almost everything, including a $2 cup of coffee. Who am I to stand in the way of ďprogressĒ??
