Place: The jewelry counter at Wal-mart in The Quah
Does anyone remember these dollar coins that were released in 2000?
Chris and I had gotten several of them (like 20 or more) not long after we were first married. I needed to have my watch battery replaced, so I grabbed 5 of them and headed to Wal-mart.
At the jewelry counter, the 12-year old Wal-mart girl replaced my battery, and told me my total was $3 and some change. I handed her 4 Sacagawea dollar coins and waited patiently for my change.
I should have known better.
12-year old Wal-mart girl looked at me with a very confused - somewhat annoyed - look on her face.
12 year-old Wal-mart girl: Ummm, I don't think we take these.
12 year-old Wal-mart girl: We don't take these.
Me (somewhat sarcastically): You don't take USD?
12 year-old Wal-mart girl (dead seriously): Ummm, no.
Me: Ooooookkkkkkaaaaayyyyy, I guess I'll pay with my check card then.
12 year-old Wal-mart girl: Yeah.
Sometimes, there are just no words.
