I'm not sure if it's just my imagination (or a cluster of incidents lately), but I'm starting to wonder if money is getting dirtier and more worn out these days. Maybe no new prints and/or people "abusing" cash (lol)?
These bills I've been getting in change (non-bank) are just disgusting recently. A few $20's smelled so bad that I immediately exchanged them. Other bills I've gotten seem to have mildew and/or mold on them. Others have been "sticky." I also received a .25 coin from a fast food restaurant with black and green slime all over it recently. It rubbed off onto my hand (and my skin "stung" ) and then smeared onto my car's coin box.
Are people just nasty with money?

I can't remember the last time I used cash for anything. My paycheck goes into my bank via direct deposit. The MS is either by Paypal or check. I pay my bills online. Every purchase is on a credit card with 2% or more in cash back and I pay that every month. So, no cash. My husband still uses cash since he goes to a deli for breakfast and buys lunch, I would never do that.
Banks should WASH our bills...seriously....are they ever cleaned?
An aunt of mine, who worked as a cashier in a bad part of town in her city, said customers often took money out of their socks and breasts when paying for their food. It grossed her out having to touch it after they did that. I think the logic (implied, as she never said why) is that it may be dangerous in these areas and one could easily be robbed. Having money in your socks or breasts probably makes it less likely you'll get searched there or something?
