So I go down to Dunkin' Donuts to grab myself a latte and a bagel. I only bring down $5 because nothing at Dunkin' should EVER cost more than that. Well APPARENTLY a latte and a bagel with cream cheese is $5.33. So I stare at her awkwardly and say "oh...can you take off the cream cheese then...I only have $5..." She replies "Oh you want me to take the whole bagel off?" "God no, I'm hungry, just the cream cheese...is that less than $5?" She fiddles around with the register and then starts speaking Spanish to the people making my bagel. Somehow I actually understand everything she's saying. Basically she was like "Alright guys, no cream cheese on that one, she doesn't have enough money...[someone replies with how much does she have?] she only has $5..." I stand there giving the side eye hoping that no one around me can understand their Spanish and see what a loser I am. The manager then comes over and basically has to give me a discount of 35 cents so that I can have cream cheese on my bagel. Which was very nice, I do enjoy charity. This is the second time this week something like this has happened to me.
Cut to Monday when I went down to the little convenience store to buy a couple packs gum and maybe a Sour Patch bag or two. The total comes to like $7 so I casually slide her my awesome debit card which I will use for any small amount...and I think its funny (I used it last week for $1.13 purchase). She awkwardly lets me know that they only take cash (who does that?) and so I have to dig through my wallet to scrape up the $6 I had in there. I had to have her take back one pack of gum so that I could afford to get out of there. Awesome.
