I mean yeah sure if you're a cashier or a customer, it's easy but when you go through tens of thousands of dollars over a short period of time, I think color really helps.

The new plastic Canadian bills are a total ***** to count though. They don't go through the old machines very well.

I'm disturbed at how many Canadians are missing out the 'u' in colour.

Every time I read 'colour' my mind pronounces it like some French word.

Coloured money, because I feel like I'm playing Monopoly on a daily basis!

Coloured money FTW! I don't discriminate!

How is that even possible? In French it is 'couleur'.

EDIT: coloured is of course the only right option. Isn't this much, much easier to differentiate?

Colored money. I take a quick peek inside my wallet and I know exactly how much money I have. If I had American money I'd have to take the bills out of my wallet, unfold them, count every single one, and place them back in my wallet.

Colored money >>>>>>>>>>>> monochrome

Only benefit of America money is you can have a big stack of bills worth pretty much nothing yet feel like a champ cause there's no obvious difference.



But d it bigger than that of course.
