Does she even know what the First Amendment is? I'm pretty sure denying money that's been touched after a cold sore has nothing to do anything with freedom of religion. It's people like this, who can't even get their facts straight about the country they live in, make me lose faith in America.
I really don't think 20 was trying to be an "attention whore".. Come on people.. He obviously was just replying to the FML... Big deal if it happened to be on someone's comment rather than "his own" comment. I highly doubt it was all because he wanted others to read it. Sure seems like some of you have a very big stick stuck up your asses that you should work on pulling out... Honest to god, why do some of you have nothing better to do but be rude as fuck and assume he did it for the attention. Seems you are calling him out and being an ass for no reason other than for some attention your damn selves. I on the other hand agree with his comment stated to the FML. I mean, that is what most people are hear to reply to. Oops he "thread jacked" someone. Who is to say he did it for attention? Get a life and get real... Damn. I hate when people got to be rude to others for no damn reason other than the fact that they have nothing better to do... Well, said my piece. Good day :)
22, and 28, I don't mean to be a bitch but 20's comment was fine, and he stated his opinion, what does it matter if he replied to 1's comment? it's not like he is the first person to do so, and definitely not the last. Just cut him some slack, being a bitch over the internet to someone that has done nothing wrong is not always "cool" good day.
That's disgusting.. I'm sorry OP I would have done the same thing. You should of just explained to her how gross that was. I'm sure most people wouldn't take it either.
There's nothing in the first amendment about not accepting herpes-infected money.
Though the first amendment does not mention this circumstance, the money itself does say "THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER FOR ALL DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE" and therefore legally OP should accept the money as payment no matter how gross the circumstance and so OP should have found some way rather than just refusing to accept the cash.
65- I've been given counterfeit bills that say the same (just saying). Plus, OP had every right to refuse to touch the money under a myriad of other laws put in place to protect workers from unsafe, hazardous, or unhealthy conditions. The woman could have put the money down on a plastic bag until OP could get gloves and something to sanitize the money and counter area with. Also, there are also several laws that could be used by OP to press charges against the woman for knowingly creating the circumstances for the spread of infectious disease. All of which have nothing to do with the First Amendment.
118- Actually, that's exactly what it means. Legal tender means that the note must, by law, be accepted as payment for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues. It's actually in the 10th Amendment: “…and such notes herein authorized shall be receivable in payment of all taxes, internal duties, excises, debts, and demands of every kind due to the United States,…, and shall also be lawful money and a legal tender in payment of all debts, public and private, within the United States,…”
The legal tender issue has nothing to do with the 1st amendment. That is a garuntee by the US government to cover the denomination marked by that bill. She can take that to a bank and exchange it for new currency and the bank will mark the old as worn out or damaged. However the store cashier has every right to refuse anything bio hazardous and contaminated. While she cannot reject money she can have that customer go exchange it for clean money.
#164: do a little more research. Cold sores are caused by the same virus as genital herpes. As people have ALREADY mentioned, cold-sores are the Herpes Simplex-1 virus, as genital herpes are Herpes Simplex-2. cold sores CAN be transmitted to others by skin-to-skin contact. And, as someone else has also already said, either one can appear in either location. Yes, you can get genital herpes on your mouth.
153- Even if a sign says "No bills over 20", the company still has to accept any denomination of legal tender--if they can make change for it. I worked at a store and we were told several times to discourage large bills but that we could not refuse cash for any sale. That's why we had a safe that dispenses rolls of smaller bills to break large bills without keeping too much in the register. The LAW of legal tender supersedes the STORE POLICY of no large bills.
Funny since most the people in my town with sores on their lips are super skinny (we have a huge meth problem). The "People of Wal-Mart" thing is a group purposely looking for the most outrageous photos they can find. Most people shop at Wal-Mart (at least occasionally), so there are all types there. I went a few weeks ago in jeans, halter top, and heels (have to say I looked amazing). Bet no one posts a picture of that because it's not disgustingly hilarious.
