I was reminded the other day how small change can bring big laughs sometimes…
After placing an order and paying for it at a restaurant counter, I was supposed to be given the change in the regions of some dollars and FIFTY CENTS. Since I was carrying some other stuff, I simply dropped the FIFTY CENT coin into my trouser pocket and made my way back to the table.
Then, when I started to fiddle my trousers to take out the coin to check, I was so sure I felt a TWENTY CENT coin inside! I had almost started my
warpath journey to the counter to get it changed again, when suddenly I lifted up the TWENTY CENT coin and lo and behold….it was actually a FIFTY CENT coin after all…
I don’t know about the rest of you, but personally, I still cannot get myself used to the new coins…after all, they are…
– so small!
– so light!
– feels like arcade tokens!
– easily fools me!
What about you? Are you liking em new coins? 😛
