Hee Hee!

I'm such a passive agressive bee-yotch.

Yes, it should be tricky tray, not trick tray. I just learned what these stupid things are, I deserve a little slack.

But $2 is $2. Nowhere in the note home did it say we had to donate bills.

I would have given them pennies, but the YMCA Aftercare Program is having a penny drive and the pennies are spoken for. Somehow I'm more inclined to cheerfully donate to them.

And why yes, those would be Canadian nickles you see in there. There's 25 cents in Canadian in there.

Coming from Alaska, I find it odd that these non-border states don't accept Canadian coins so I always have to sneak them into rolls.

I'm sure the Home & School Association will blacklist me for only technically donating $1.75.

Hee hee.

Way to go! Pennies would have been great. Can't wait to hear how this whole tricky tray thing goes down. Love, Aunt Susan

Too bad about the pennies...that would have been awesome.

But sticking it to them with the Canadian money? The only way to trump that is if someone sneaks in some old Mexican pesos :).

Good show!

Canadian nickels!!! Why can't they spend them? You just can't use them in the vending machines.

I love the way school nickels and dimes you to the poorhouse!!

Love, Mom

The Canadian money is currently worth more than the US money. So you've been unintentionally generous (by 5 cents.)

I wouldn't have even donated a thing, so while you may call yourself a PAB, you are more generous than me. :)

The whole "no Canadian coins" thing seems weird to me. We used to use them all the time when I was a kid. In Texas, we never saw them, so I was surprised when I moved back to the Midwest and saw that not everyone accepts them.

(and today's verification word is "sporke.")

I would definitely sneak in a note about them nickel and diming you to death.

Canadian money isn't worth more (maybe the metal we use to make it is though).

I find it bizarre that places won't take Canadian coins... We get American coins in our change all the time and no one gives it a second thought!

That's awesome! I applaud you.

Oh, and we take Canadian coin up here ... Canadian dollars, too.

But not long ago, Canadian currency was worth more than US currency. The school should be happy.

You should have taken the coins to a coin machine, where they print out how much you have on a slip of paper, The school peeps would have had to make a trip to the supermarket just to redeem it. LOL

Blacklist you? Sheesh, you can only hope... Wish you'd had a bit more time, I would have sent you all of my "brown" change (1, 2, and 5 cent Euro coins) that just sit in a drawer.

I have some too! If they ever ask for money again, gimme a holler. I'll send you the Canadian quarters I got while living in upstate NY. I hated, hated, hated schlepping my laundry down 6 floors, only to discover that one of the quarters I needed to operate the washer was Canadian and didn't work!

Hey, two dollars is two dollars. When the exxon valdeze (sp?) dumped it's oil, we had an exxon card. My husband cut the card up and when we sent in our last payment, he wanted to put it in a plastic bag full of oil. I told him that could get him arrested for mail tampering or something. But I loved the idea.
