A penny short

I stopped by a Houston Metro RideStore on my way home from work tonight to buy the $25 MetroRail Downtown Pass. I presented my credit card to pay for it, and was told that Metro was only accepting cash and checks. (!)

In my wallet, I had 24 dollars.

In my pocket, I had 99 cents.

I’m not kidding.

After remorsefully realizing that Kevin Whited does have a point, I remembered that I had some spare change in my attaché case, and was then able to buy the railpass without having to come back the next day.

I’m happy to say that I didn’t need any money on my way home.
