Bad Times

Canadian Five and Ten Dollar Bills
This is what I received in an unmarked envelope as the final installment for a contract I worked on. I won't say who my employer was, but it's a little worrisome to be paid in five and ten dollar bills—I guess things are still a little bleak on the economic front.

Several years ago, I used to work as an office assistant at a local church. Occasionally, when I took care of office work during non-Sunday services, I was paid out of the collection plate. This kind of reminds me of that, only this time I wasn't paid in change.
