Earlier this year while shopping at a Walnut Ridge grocery store, I was treated horribly when they thought the $20 bill I was paying with was fake.
I had to go to the Police Department and they sent the money to the crime lab to be tested. David Burnside from the Walnut Ridge Police Department called me today to let me know that the money had been real after all. I can go claim it tomorrow.
Officer Burnside said the bill had been printed in 1950, which was before the recent safety measures to prevent counterfeiting. In my opinion, the store should better train their cashiers on how to spot counterfeit money.
If their safety precautions don’t apply to bills printed prior to a certain time, they should know that and use another method of testing. At the very least, they should make sure that all of their customers are treated respectfully.
I know a little extra effort on the store’s part would have saved me a lot of embarrassment.
I’m very happy to be getting my $20 back. This, however, has been an experience I won’t soon forget.
