98 cents

This morning, after surfing, I stopped in the bagel shop to get some breakfast.

I ordered a Bacon, Egg and Cheese sandwich with a coffee (milk, no sugar).

I also bought breakfast for my friend and it came to $18.02. I gave the woman a $20 and she gave me $1.98 back. That's a lot of change to have sitting in your pocket. I pretty much decided to hate her then and there. I mean, eat the two fucking cents!

The worst thing is that my sandwich had no bacon on it and my coffee had sugar in it.

This was a sign to me... it was a sign that the rest of my day would suck. Others might have seen it as an early morning bottom, instead it was the beginning of a downtrend for me.

Perhaps this will change. For now, I am taking it easy.

I feel your pain - I just hate loose change. You can't blame the girl though. She has to balance the books.

Some places has a basket for pennies. They call it "take a penny, leave a penny" basket. Very thoughtful.

Dude! I'm telling you, it's that "getting the essence of what you're thinking about" thing! When I get a screwed up drink at Starbucks, I know right then and there that I've been spending too much time worried, uptight, pissed, or whatever. But when I have some lady that I've never seen before in front of me in the Starbucks drive-thru line pay for my drink (it happened!), then I know I'm in the zone.

That stuff is worth paying attention to - there are no coincidences. Just my opinion of course. L8r.

That's why I love your site. I agree this stuff is worth thinking about.

Vibe is real.
