Real Life Conversations with Mom: International Politics edition

The backstory:  My extended family is headed to Europe to celebrate my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and I was talking currency conversion with my mom.

Me:  I won’t get currency for all the places we visit, but I think that I will get some Euros for Germany and Estonia.

Mom:  They’ll be useful in Russia.

Me:  No, they won’t.

Mom:  Yes, they will.  I am pretty sure you can use Euros in Russia.

Me:  Well you sure as hell can’t use them in Ukraine.

Silence.  It would seem my mom isn’t fully informed about Vladimir Putin and his crap.  Internet, expect an international incident involving the Sassafras Family in the coming weeks.
