23:08 < constant> just got back from a Western Union
23:08 < constant> received a whole pocket load of bills for my initial payment. :)
23:10 < constant> 14 bills in total! :)
23:10 < constant> at least, they didn't give me any coins. :)))
23:10 <@jbr> nice :)
23:10 <@jbr> i only got 3 bills and some coins :(
23:11 < constant> I'm curious how they are going to pay 2000 USD here. ;)
23:11 < constant> no way am I going to carry 100 bills! ;)
23:12 < constant> jbr: we you offered a cheque?
23:12 <@jbr> you should bring a briefcase, like in the movies
23:12 < constant> yeah, but in movies they have 100 USD bills. ;)
23:12 <@jbr> no, but i sure i could have gotten one, if i had asked
23:12 <@jbr> its the thought that counts ;)
23:13 < constant> for some reason here they print a cheque, and ask you to "endorse" it on the back, so that they can cash it
23:13 <@jbr> i like cash, for tax evasion purposes :)
23:13 < constant> I asked them if I can cash it myself, they said, "sure"
23:13 < constant> I went to the bank, but it was closed.
23:13 < constant> I looked more at the cheque, and noticed that it said, "Counter signature", but they didn't sign it
23:14 < constant> so I went back, asked them to sign it so that I won't have any problems at the bank -- they said they never sign them,
                  and offered to cash it instead.
23:14 < constant> so here I am, with 14 bills. :)
23:14 <@jbr> :)
23:15 < constant> jbr: cheques work for tax evasion purposes, too. :)
23:15 <@jbr> probably :)
23:15 < constant> btw, didn't have to bring any numbers with me, except for state-issued id
23:16 < constant> just wrote my address, said 500 USD, payment from Google, Inc from Mountain View, CA, USA, there it was
