Hey, can you break a hundred?
Yeah. I don’t understand why but…
No. I don’t mean rip it.
I mean, I need change!
Oh sure. I have a few coins.
When you say break a hundred,
it means you want smaller bills,
like five twenties or ten tens.
We say break a bill.
Can you break this for me?

Do you have an expression like this in your country? Let me know on YouTube Comments 🙂
