How can I exchange marked Dollar bills?

I recently got paid in Dollars but when I went to exchange them I noticed many were marked and neither the bank nor the exchange place wanted to accept them. Does anyone know of a way to exchange these bills?

Re: Cost of a can of dog food

Re: Pet food choice

Feeding pets cooked bones is almost always a bad idea. They do get brittle. The exception would be cow bones. some of the bones are extremely thick and can not be opened by the dogs so thats when I cook the marrow out of it. Sorry for not mentioning this earlier.

Re: Why Chile is not that bad!?!

Everyone on this forum complains so much about Chile. There has to be some really good reasons why you put up with all the crap.

Maybe I should change the title to "Why Chile SUCKS and Greats reasons to leave". im sure nobody would hold back
