This certainly does not make much cents.
A Massachusetts library pleaded with the public on Wednesday through a Facebook post to stop paying late fees with Chuck E. Cheese and Bonkers Fun House tokens.
The Peabody Institute Library in Danvers, Mass., posted a picture of four tokens with a caption stating: “This summer we’ve had a surge of folks attempting to pay fines and printing fees with tokens from Chuck E. Cheese and Bonkers. Since they are not legal tender, we cannot accept them.”
Sue Kontos, a bookkeeper at the library, said she was given tokens from the two entertainment centers and counted them before discovering the coins were not the proper currency, The Salem News reported.
