RL story from the weekend. I thought some of you might find this amusing.
It’s Saturday, and lunchtime when the Mrs. decides that Chic-Fil-A would be an acceptable meal. So, I hop in my car, and call my Sister to congratulate her on her new TA position at the University of Kentucky, and talk to her until I have to order my food. I order, and reach into my back pocket and…
I’m literally going to have to pay $10.90 in about 30 seconds, and I’m driving without a licence. It’s good to be me. So, I contemplate leaving the drive thru and going home.
Then, in a brief moment of genius, I open the glove compartment, where I remember I had stashed 2 $2 bills. Well, that’s $4 down. Next, I raided my armrest and located the 5 $1 coins from last summer’s trip to NY (gotta love all the tolls). I also scavenged 7 Quarters, a Nickel and two Dimes while I was in there, totaling, $10.90.
Let’s recap. Here’s what I payed with:
- Two $2 bills
- Five $1 coins
- Seven Quarters
- Two Dimes
- One Nickel
That might be the most random assortment of money I’ve ever paid for anything with. Be glad I didn’t have any half dollars, the Space-Time Continuum might have collapsed if I did.
Btw, The look I got from the girl at the window was priceless.
