I just put a dollar bill in the soda pop machine.
The machine rejected my dollar bill!
Does that mean my dollar bill can no longer be counted as a dollar? After
all, the machine refused to accept it as a legal tender. But it IS a
dollar, regardless of what this machine says, right? If I go down to my
local bank, and demand that my dollar be counted as a valid American dollar,
will they say, "Sorry, but this dollar bill was rejected by a soft drink
machine whose patent and machinery has been approved by various state and
federal agencies. It is your fault you did not insert your dollar properly."
