November 21, 2006
woke up this morning & felt like reading a paper…I went to my coin box which has loads of 1p & 2p coins and then got 50 – 1p coins & 10 – 2p coins to make 70p for a copy of the Independent all to read the Sacha Baron Cohen (a.k.a. Borat/Ali G) 5 page interview. To do this I had to load my laptop bag pockets with 60 heavy coins and then I headed up to WH Smith….when I got there and off-loaded the coins, the cashier looked at me really funny & then sarcastically asked the other cashier whether they accept that many 1p coins. I said to myself comon stop being so difficult and accept my coins….you stupid thing! I had avoided the corner shop downstairs strictly on the grounds of not annoying a small business owner on a Tuesday morning trying to make ends meet….but for a big corporation like WH Smith I had no mercy (hehe). Anyways the other attendant said YES OF COURSE….then she counted it and of course it was complete to the last 1p (lol)....I giggled and let her see me and felt really satisfied….
There was also a rainbow after the afternoon rain…I have attached a pic I took on my cell from the window by my desk at the office.
