Loose Change

Went into the shop at work and, of the five and ten pound notes in my wallet, decided to pay with the fiver. Duly handed over the note, and was given change for a tenner. Pointed this out to the chap, who laughed, and said I was very honest, and it must have been because people had been giving him tenners all morning, and took back the balance.

Left the shop, looked in my wallet, and, you've guessed it, I HAD actually handed over the f*@#%*g ten pounds. Far, far too embarrassed to go back and say so. And I didn't get ANYTHING out of it, as I was shopping for someone else, who, after asking if I'd be passing, promptly handed me a written list* of items. Who knew doing a favour would work out so expensive...

Considered shouting "I'm sick of you taking advantage of me just because I haven't got any breasts" but was faced with the sad liklihood of no-one having a clue what I was talking about and looking at me strangely. Not an infrequent occurrence, it has to be said.

I know what you're talking about. Do you look like her? She's the one member of that office team I fancy.

So there is.

Sorry. Shouldn't make suggestive remarks on young ladies' blogs.

Oh well, in that case, you look even more attractive than the person about whom we were talking. You don't have a pencil skirt, do you?
