The mustache on the Statue of Liberty should have tipped her off.

Did the police kneel on their necks for trying to pass a counterfeit bill?

She’s thinking too small. There’s no way Dollar General can make change for that.

“I would like to buy everything. And can you gift wrap it, please?”

[she told] the cop that she received the $1 million bill “in the mail from a church,” but was unable to provide additional information about the purported house of worship’s largesse

Which is not that surprising at all with certain people

Only two-hundred million?

The church that gave her that bill must be in the wealthy part of town.

This is under the tag “dollar-stores” which only has 2 stories, both referring to Dollar General.
Dollar General is not a dollar store.

If it’s the same type of bill as in the picture accompanying the article, the fact that the bill itself states “This note is non-negotiable. It’s[sic] sole purpose is to promote special events and good times” should have as well. Even if it were a different type of funny money it should have had a similar disclaimer on it (put there so the manufacturers don’t get arrested for counterfeiting.)

Leaving aside whether they actually believed it was real, how did they think that was going to work? Did they really think that they’d get $999K in change? From a Dollar Store?

Pffft. (Gotta show those zeros.)
