Sign from God

Today, while running my early morning errands, I received a sign from God.

Honestly.

Well, actually it was a sign from God, acting through some clerk.

You see, some clerk today (I made multiple stops), slipped me a Canadian nickle in my change without me noticing.

Now, most American's would be upset, receiving a Canadian nickle, which is only worth 3 American cents.

I, on the other hand, was tickled pink and consider my new found Canadian nickle a sign from God.

I mean, now I have another nickle to spend next time I pull my little fiberglass wonder up to Canada!

Has to be a miracle!

A sign from God

...and He says ''Go north, young man. Hook up thy Casita and drive north! There ye shall find great winter camping!''

Coins

In canada if you take American coin to bank you only get face value.EG 4x .25cents US only gets you $1.00 Cdn.Its only Bills where you get exchange rate. I take all US coins out of till at work and save them.(I exchange with Cdn)Once a year take to Eruka Montana and then exchange them and I get money(Bills)Then do the exchange.Last year I went on Holidays and most of trip was paid for without using Holiday pay.
Does this make sence.:o

exchange with US

My understanding is that unfortunately, there is no international treaty or language between our countries that addresses exchange rates. It's a wide open market to charge whatever the institution determines for themselves.

Now of course businesses want to remain competitive for the customer so they usualy obey an established/posted rate set federally but the banks or the local kwiki mart could collude and raise or lower x-rates as they see fit.

We could see "bank charges" applied to money exchange sometime down the road.

At least that's how I see it...

Hi Mike
As far as I know our banks up here set rates daily according to what our dollar is as compared to yours.The next thing is that in Montana (North) the stores used to let us canuks buy goods at par. That of course has changed.Its only the Busseness which set a flat rate.There attitude is take it or leave it. I normally send people who want to exchange money to bank as they get more in return.:)

rates

Chester you are correct, however there is no governance on exchange rates between the parties. So...it's up to the country with the higher rate. I threw a smiley in 'cause this is supposed to be jokes and tall tales...

:lol
