I’ll start by saying thank you to Wendy for our prompt word of the day, “change.” Thanks, Wendy! You can find Wendy’s Just Jot it January post here. Go visit her and say hi, and give her a follow!
They say the only thing in the world we can be certain of is change.
And yet I never seem to have any in my wallet anymore.
What’s up with that?
It sucks, actually, when you want change for something–to get on a bus, to throw into a tip jar, or worst of all, when you need a quarter to get a shopping cart.
Do you get those where you live? Shopping carts that are chained together and the only way you can get just one is to put a quarter in a slot to release the chain?
Seriously, I’m not going to steal your cart, nor am I going to fail to put it away.
A few times I’ve been so completely out of cash that I’ve had to use one of those hand-held baskets for way too much food. If I’m really desperate and I really need a lot of groceries, I’ll put the food into my reusable bags. But then I walk around the store feeling guilty, like everyone must think I’m trying to steal food.
Which I’m not, of course. I just don’t have a quarter to put into your damned cart, Mr. Grocery Man!
Still, I always make a big show of turning my bag upside down at the checkout and shaking it to prove there’s nothing in it.
Ah, the joys of the convenience of debit and credit cards.
P.S. I have heat! Still waiting for a part to come in, but we’re good for now. And I only got one repair man this time!
