He got a ticket for not being able to follow simple rules and it's still him acting annoyed and complicating the clerk's work?
This guy paying in pig bills is an asshole.

The guy paying in Pig Bills is awesome.

He should have just said , I have video evidence i have paid so just send me out my receipt, then walked away and let them unfold them all.

Cash is cash and it is always nice to get one back.

#2 Theres nothing awesome about spending hours folding up dollar bills, only to have to spend even more time unfolding them again before they're accepted. Video evidence in this case is not evidence. He needs a receipt for that, and the guy wasn't going to give him one until he'd unfolded them. The kid isn't as smart as he thinks he is. I'm surprised he wasn't too embarassed to post his video online for everyone to see what a numbskull he is.

#3 Check out the videos on youtube of people paying in pennies and you will see video evidence is acceptable,it is legal tender as are the dollar piggies.

Video "is" evidence you paid and if they do not want to count/unfold legal tender then that is not your problem,you paid, end off.

He should have just walked away but unfortunately never had the guts to follow through.

Here is a link just for you so you can find the hundreds out there.

#4 Leaving aside the point that legal tender need only be accepted in certain maxiumum quantities, ie. in Britain
1 pence coins > upto 20 pence
2 pence coins > upto 20 pence
5 pence coins – upto £5
10 pence coins > upto £5
Here what we had was a battle of wills, and as you said, the kid didn't have the guts to follow through.
He's not awesome, he's just a loser.

2. Scotsman50 ‘The guy paying in Pig Bills is awesome’

Yeah… not with you on this one mate. The guys paying in pig bill FEELS awesome IMHO, because it is an amusing act of quasi civil disobedience (I do like the creativity) but in the end he is just making some poor desk clerk’s life miserable and not the office who gave him the ticket in the first place.

The clerk had nothing to do with the ticket, he is just a civil servant, and while he had a good smile I can imagine other stunts that may cause extra undeserved work. The clerk is just trying to make a living and presumably support his family.

>He should have just said, I have video evidence i have paid so just send me out my receipt.

Video evidence of what? That he dropped a load of pig bills down on the counter in a box? That would never hold up. These have to be counted for a receipt.

If the clerk was smart he would made this joker wait while he slowly unfolded each pig bill – just to make certain that it was in fact legal currency ;-)

As Newton never said, for every dick move stunt at a cashier’s window there is the potential for a reactive dick move that is equal in size, but opposite in direction.

And #5 sockcooker has the natural conclusion. This stunt works once and then legal tender rules regarding maximum quantities get imposed so things like this and the penny stunts won’t work again.

As a wise Western leader once said ‘Fool me one, shame on me… we won’t get fooled again’.

#5 Here is the UK etc part
If you’re thinking of ways to get some revenge (and by the way, we don’t endorse or recommend this) then you may be interested to know that £1 and £2 coins are legal tender for any amount – even if they are in a block of ice or a bucket of rice pudding.

What are the rules?

1 pence coins > upto 20 pence
2 pence coins > upto 20 pence
5 pence coins – upto £5
10 pence coins > upto £5
20 pence coins > upto £10
50 pence coins > upto £10
£1 pound coins > any amount
£2 pound coins > any amount
So in the uk you can legally pay any bills in £1.00 coins. (even a £40,000.00 Tax Bill)

American law is thus and his sign clearly says Cash.

Up until the late 19th century, pennies and nickels weren’t legal tender at all. The Coinage Acts of 1873 and 1879 made them legal tender for debts up to 25 cents only, while the other fractional coins (dimes, quarters, and half dollars) were legal tender for amounts up to $10. This remained the law until the Coinage Act of 1965 specified that all U.S. coins are legal tender in any amount. However, even in cases where legal tender has been agreed to as a form of payment, private businesses are still free to specify which forms of legal tender they will accept. If a shop doesn’t want to take any currency larger than $20 bills, or they don’t want to take pennies at all, or they want to be paid in nothing but dimes, they’re entitled to do so (but, as mentioned earlier, they should specify their payment policies before entering into transactions with buyers). Businesses are free to accept or reject pennies as they see fit; no law specifies that pennies cease to be considered legal tender when proffered in quantities over a particular amount.

He handed them Dollar Bills ,so legal.

We can both Google so i will leave it there and still say HE WAS AWESOME.:squirrel::squirrel:

#7 Regarding paying a £40,000 tax bill in £1 coins, just imagine how much trouble you'd have to go to in order to acquire forty thousand one pound coins, not to mention to then transport them to an office to pay the bill. All that would prove is that you're an idiot.

Yes, the kid handed over dollar bills, so it was legal, and if he'd have gone through with it, that would have been awesome, but the cashier stood his ground and the kid bottled out, so I'll leave it there and say that the kid was most definitely LAME!

Final score: Cashier 1 - Lame kid 0

I put this video on so perhaps I should keep out of it but... I guess the issue here is that when paying by notes in pig form it is necessary for you to show all of the note as there may be parts missing, it may only be half a note, so I'm sure the cashier could have used that alone to refuse to accept them in pig form.
On the other hand compared to some of the video's on this type of subject I thought all parties behaved extremely well and good humored, the cashier found it funny and the pig folder was still cracking jokes right up to the end. I don't think anyone really lost except for a little time. <3
