I got some money in a card.  I was excited until my DH pointed out that one of the bills was a fake.  It's a $2 bill.  Who's idea of a joke is this???  $2 bills don't exist!  I guess its my grandma's idea of a joke.

A friend told me its real, but that just can't be true.  I have never heard of them or seen them before today.  My DH has never seen one and neither has anyone he knows.

Is it real?

Haha, they are real.  We have over 100 of them in our safe.  I had about half of them since I was a little girl.

yes $2 bills are real they just don't make them anymore cause from what I read people were saving them instead of spending them. I have 4 myself.

Yep, when I was a kid my older cousin would give me a 2.00 bill every Christmas and a half dollar on Easter. There are 2.00 bills. We were always told that they were bad luck and to rip off the corners for good luck..lol..Yeah, I think a good majority of my Mom's family spent there 2.00 bills on crack ;)

ETA He got these bills at a BANK. This was the 80's.

Please tell me there is a sarcastic tone to this, or you really don't work in a bank! If not please quit your job NOW and go seek employment in a field you are more knowledgeable or get better trained like yesterday!
