    Default Refreshingly, "Non-S.Floridian" Attempts To Use 1Million Dollar Bill...At Supermarket

    Yup. In a starling change of character, this fellow pulled this stunt in Pennsylvania...

    Man jailed for trying to pass $1M bill

    PITTSBURGH - Change for a million? That's what a man was seeking Saturday when he handed a $1 million bill to a cashier at a Pittsburgh supermarket. But when the Giant Eagle employee refused and a manager confiscated the bogus bill, the man flew into a rage, police said.


    The man slammed an electronic funds-transfer machine into the counter and reached for a scanner gun, police said.

    Police arrested the man, who was not carrying identification and has refused to give his name to authorities. He is being held in the Allegheny County Jail.

    Since 1969, the $100 bill is the largest note in circulation.

    Police believe the $1 million note seized at the supermarket may have originated at a Dallas-based ministry. Last year, the ministry distributed thousands of religious pamphlets with a picture of President Grover Cleveland on a $1 million bill.

    LOL. What supermarket has change for $1 million bills? They always have to go to multiple registers if you want change for $100.

    This guy probably thought he had a great plan, too.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
