Yukon Spend It

| British Columbia, Canada |

Me: “Okay, your total is $189.14. Cash or credit?”

Customer: “Cash.” *hands me $200 American*

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. We don’t accept US currency.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Because this is Canada.”

Customer: “Last time I was in Canada I used American cash.”

Me: “Well, sir, that place probably accepted different currencies. I can only accept Canadian.”

Customer: “I don’t have any! I only have Visa.”

Me: “We accept Visa.”

Customer: “Wait! Let me get this straight: you won’t accept my American cash, but you’ll accept an American credit card?”

Me: “Yes.”

(He throws the card at me. I swipe it through and he gathers his bags.)

Customer: “This is ridiculous. When did Canada get its own currency, anyway?”
