Poor Mr. Jefferson

Funny fact: In Cambodia the US Dollar reigns. Just the paper kind, though; in place of coins they use Cambodian Riel ($0.25 = 1,000 Riel).

Jean received a $2 bill as change at a restaurant yesterday. Today I tried to spend it at another restaurant but was refused. They knew it was real, but they didn’t want to try and explain that to the next recipient.

Poor Thomas Jefferson. No one wants you. Except in Vietnam. Apparently the $2 bill is trendy to keep in your wallet there.
