So false, it’s true

(Grocery StoreChicago, IL, USA)

(I am checking out a man with a thick southern accent.)

Me: “How would you like to pay for that?”

Customer: “Oh, darn. I must’ve forgotten my credit card at home. All I got is money.”

Me: “We do take cash.”

Customer: “It’s American money. I know you folks don’t take that.”

Me: “We take American money. This is America.”

(The man’s mouth literally drops open.)

Customer: “No fooling? When did that happen?”

Me: “When Illinois became a territory of the United States of America?”

Customer: “America took land from the Canadians? I must’ve missed it on the news.”

Wait, Chicago is part of the US?
