true story: I once saw a medical student from belguim drop a single bill in an elevator. I went into the elevator, I was alone, and picked up the bill to see that it was a 500 Euro note. I was shocked that there was such a high denomination note and did a quick calculation to see how much that was in dollars (a lot).
I almost didn't give the motherfucker back (FINDERS KEEPERS BEYOOOCH), but later that day I saw the student (he was visibly distraught) and started to mess with him, I offered to lend him 500euros with a 5% vig. Turns out the kid lives on 500 Euros for food for two weeks (which in NYC isn't much) I felt like an asshole and gave it back and he hugged me.
I don't get why the US doesn't have $500 and $1000 in regular circulation. It would make drug deals and gambling debts/payouts so much easier.
