And My Pockets Are Lighter
Docent: Excuse me, but we're closing in five minutes and if you can pay now I will write out a receipt for you.
D: Now, how many photos was that?
Me: [After looking through my notebook and counting nine photographs.] Um, nine.
D: Will you pay in Crowns or Euros?
She left the room to write the receipt. Who knows why I decided to pay in Euros, I guess I figured that I might as well use up the coins I had laying around. It turns out that there were actually only eight Euros in my pocket. Uh oh! The Docent returned. "Sorry," I said, "but there is a bit of a problem: I only have eight Euros with me."
D: No problem! I'll just re-write the receipt for eight.
It was that easy. And someone else's pockets are heavier.
Previously: To Continue, Please Insert One Euro
