She gave me an old, beat-up quarter to pay a fine, and I couldn’t help but make fun of it.
“Is this really a quarter? I’m not sure because I can’t read any of the writing on it.”
“It won’t matter soon anyway because they say soon we’ll have the same money,” said our director who was standing nearby or something to that effect. I’m not sure if she was trying to be ironic or not, but the patron took it as her cue to add:
“And with Obama’s face on it. Don’t get me started.”
Don’t get me started.
That reminded of my last Patron of the Week: Mrs. My-Son-Believes-In-Extraterrestials-And-I-Like-To-Leave-People-Hanging-In-Suspense, who ended her story with:
“Of course, there’s more to THAT story but I need to get home.”
Again, here I had another patron leaving me in suspense.
“Oh, please, please start, I so want to hear what other right-wing conspiracies you have…,” I was thinking.
But alas, she didn’t.
So just as I asked with my last Patron of the Week post, I will ask the question of you, “What’s the rest of the story?” Or in other words, start! Let me know in the comments again or write your own blog post — if you feel that inspired or are that hard-up for blog fodder.
