Hi? Yeah... I'm the Asshole...

...who tried to pass a Euro off at Starbucks as a $1 coin.

See when I go to the postage machine at the mall, if my change includes more than $1, it spits out a $1 coin. Why don't I go to the post office? Hm cause bringing Liam to the post office is about as much fun as a bikini wax.

::tangent:: And why is there always only ONE person working the desk at the post office? No matter what time of day there is always a line of EXTREMELY irritated or SLIGHTLY comatose people. And they don't like children. NONE OF THEM. It's like a line of kid-haters. And currently Liam likes, well, almost everyone... so you can imagine the tension!
::/tangent::

So I thought what I had in my pocket was a $1 coin, until the drive thru lady held it up like I was trying to rob the joint and said "That's a Euro."

I'm all "uh...oh...hold on a sec...ha ha...oops!" and she's all *long suffering sigh*.

Yes that's my mocha, thank you, have a nice day, next!

    I go to the postage machine at the WalMart (I KNOW! Can you believe it???) and I always wind up with many many Sacagawea dollars, which the baristas at the bookstore coffee bar often don't recognize as US currency. So there I am, desperate for the coffee, and the girl is all, 'Uh, I don't know what that is,' and I'm all, 'It's a dollar!' and she's all, 'Really? Who's that on it?' and I'm all, 'SACAGAWEA! She led Lewis and Clark to the . . . oh, never mind.'

    Phew. I blame the surly post office workers.

    why the line is full of kid-haters:
    because, like you, the kids hate the post office. They can't touch anything, there is nothing interesting to look at, and they have to wait in an endless line. in fact, this is why YOU hate the post office. What you don't do, though, is twirl, kick your feet against hollow cabinetry, run from one end of the counter to the other, ask "is this gum?" (or something equally unanswerable, sit on the counter, or drop to the floor in a heap and scream.
    We all would if we could. We don't hate those kids. We are jealous of them.
