The Sacagawea Dollar is Useless! (Opinion)

I’m not going to do business with any merchant passing along his personal inconveniences."Government satisfied the politically correct with a coin nobody wants and now the car wash wants to fob them off on me"

Over the weekend, I decided to get the car washed.  There are a lot of options in Twin Falls and generally I like a power wash.  The trouble is my normal car wash hasn’t had hot wax available for quite some time and nobody appears in much of a hurry to get the machine fixed.

Instead, I went to an automatic wash where an attendant handed me 3 gold colored tokens as change.  When I objected, he insisted the Sacagawea dollars were legal tender.  As we all know getting rid of them is easier said than done.  Government satisfied the politically correct with a coin nobody wants and now the car wash wants to fob them off on me.  Great business decision because I won’t be a repeat customer!  I took some business courses in college and nobody ever recommended you boost business by p***ing off your customers.

I did finally find a solution.  Along with a check I tossed the coins into the collection basket at church.  May God forgive me!
