Instead of 3 $5 for a $10....

During the Korean War the Navy usually got paid in $2 bills and many of the locals in Los Angeles would give change for $20 when presented the $2 bill.

I used to get $2 bills

I would buy something for a dollar and change and get a dollar and change back. Really threw the clerk. Was continually giving back dollar bills.

When overseas, we got paid with some Ike $1 and it became the 1st money spend. I found later or so the story goes, this is how they track/determine how money was spend for our govt. for whatever reason. Heck, who wants to drag big silver for long in their pants.

Reminds me of an old joke

One guy was complaining to another that he had a fake $15 bill and didn't know how to spend it.

The other guy said that there was no problem.

The second guy came back from the store and said that he bought something for 35 cents and the clerk gave him two sevens and a 65-cent piece.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
