Well in Canada they accept US dollars, even at Tim Horton's. At least near
the border. I've never been that far into Canada. Toronto is as far as
I've been.

Seem funny that I can get Toronto on my car radio of a night again. (AM
740) There for a while there wasn't any skip at all.

Yes , that's true. But try to find a merchant on the US side willing to
accept Canadian currency larger than a penny, nickel or quarter.

I wonder what would happen if I tried to pay for my meal with pesos. I'm not
Mexican.

Most places I've been to in the world accept American Dollars....at
least around the points of entry.

Near the border, most accept Canadian currency. It requires some
sophisticated technology, though: A calculator. And, something rare: A
teenager (cashier) who can think.

Don't take me wrong. I prefer to exchange US currency ahead of time. When I
pay in their currency it's a gesture of good will, and that I'm not just
another pushy American. BTW, it's been my experience cruise ships offer
better rates and reduced fees, and sometimes no fee at all.

When I cross back my first thoughts are to find a gas station to fill up one
tank and drain my tank;) Anyway, not to disagree with you, I just never saw
any merchants blatantly advertise they accept Canadian currency. If I saw
two cash registers I just assumed one was for cash and the other for credit,
or each employee was assigned to just one.
