Robust Currency Scanning

I hop on the bus after work and JUST as I jump on I accidentally rip the one dollar bill I’m about to use as fare. Seriously. I literally ripped it right in half.

I explain to the driver that I don’t have any other one dollar bills and only have a five and four twenties when he says “just insert it into the meter.”

This sounds amazingly stupid but he insists that it will work.

Sure enough. The meter accepts my torn $1 bill.


  1. I’m pretty sure the muni doesn’t even scan the dollars. It just sucks them in.
