REASON #256 WHY I WILL NEVER BE RICH

Most of the time I carry my money wadded up in a ball inside my pants or coat pocket and carry my credit and debit cards around loosely in the same fashion.  It is not unusual for me to suddenly realize I lost a twenty dollar bill or, by the same token, find one floating around in the washing machine like free money.

 

Today when I was waiting at a downtown crosswalk, I pulled my hand out of my pocket and out flew a wad of one dollar bills.  It was blustery and there was a crowd of people waiting next to me, so before I could get to the fallen money or even yell: MINE, a young boy scuttled after it and cheered the prize to his mother.  I could not very well grab it back out of his little hands now could I?

    depends on the size of the wad (as gramma always told me)

    Yeah, you could’ve.

    This is a habit we have in common. For some reason, I often carry a larger than normal amount of cash around with me. I think it’s because my grandparents lived through the great depression and they passed on their worrywort genes to me.

    Yeah, you could have asked for your money back – and the mother should have made sure that the boy looked around for the owner. Ack

  5. Violet Says:

    Heck, yeah! I would have. There is no free lunch, kid.

    I just stopped by your blog and thought I would say hello. I like your site design. Looking forward to reading more down the road.
