To the angry Chinese woman at Walgreen's

I'm truly sorry that I handed you 27 pennies instead of a quarter and 2 pennies. I prefer to keep my quarters because unlike pennies, I can use them in the vending machine at work when I get an afternoon craving for a Dr. Pepper. I realize that you have a pretty sucky job...having to wear that "smock" all day, but seriously, it's OK to smile every now and then. And I wasn't the one who pissed in your Cheerios so give me a break already!

Oh yeah, and if it's not too much, can you please wait until I have at least put my change in my wallet before you scream "NEXT"! Thanks...

Hehehe ~ Cookie. I had a similar experience with a woman at a convenience store. One day I stopped in because I had a bit of a sweet-tooth, but when I started to go in, I realized that I didn't have any money. No bother, I thought ~ until, of course, when it was my turn in line, and the woman looked at me and said ~ "We don't take pennies!"

You can imagine the shocked expression on my face. "Oh," I asked. "So, I am to understand that the official policy of {I don't remember exactly which convenience store it was} is that you DO NOT accept pennies, despite that they are recognized legal tender for all debts, both public and private, in these United States?" {Yes, I said it in JUST that stilted of a manner}

"You're holding up everyone else in line," she barked. Then came the response from one of the guys in line behind me "No, he isn't. YOU are the one holding us up by not taking his money and getting on with it."

I turned to the gentleman, thanked him, and then turned back to the woman with my one-nundred-and-twelve pennies. She then took them, and I smirked at her.

Of course, I passed that convenience store every so often ~ and evey time I saw her working after that, I would go in, make the same purchase, and pay in all-pennies. And smirk.
