times are tight?
i was at one of my regular meetings downtown last week and when i got to my car in the parking lot i realized that i had forgotten to go to the atm. i had some cash in my wallet, but i didn't have the full $13 parking fee in bills. i didn't want to schlepp all the way back up to street level to find an atm, plus, i really needed to get back to the office quick-like. so, i ended up scrounging in my purse and car and found about $3.00 in coins to just make the parking fee. i pulled up to the attendant and greeted him - it's always the same guy, so we always chat a little. i then passed over the handful of change. he looked at me, and, i kid you not, said, "how's business?"
