Man tries to pay Valentine’s Day restaurant bill with ‘trillion dollar’ noteWe doubt there’s a place in the world that could break a ‘trillion dollar bill’ but that didn’t stop this man from reportedly trying to pay with one.
Michael Williams, from Sumter, South Carolina, offered to pay his restaurant bill with the high value currency after his debit card was rejected on February 14, according to The State.
But unsurprisingly the staff at the Applebee’s outlet did not think the note was legitimate and promptly rang police.
The 53-year-old was arrested at the restaurant but not in relation to the bill.
The authorities decided to ignore his alleged claims of being a trillionaire and instead picked him up for a pending contempt of a magistrate’s court charge.
