I dunno, but last two times I

I dunno, but last two times I went to a dollar store, I got all my change back as $1's. Total is $3.21, and you have a $20? Here's sixteen $1's and 79 cents. Seems like store policy is dump all $5's, $10's and $20's into the lockbox beneath the register. So how much money can this guy be getting away with?

Wonder how far away the

Wonder how far away the Columbia County residents are going move from Martinez now? Especially since Captain America wasn't around to save this clerk, for what, a second time? Pssst....crime is everywhere, and it tends to be in places that aren't very secure to begin with (false sense of security; or worse, waiting on Captain America's with their Glocks).
