Today I got a salad and soup and some chocolate milk from the MGH cafeteria. When the cashier rang me up, the total came to $6.66. She gasped and said “Oh no, I can’t believe I did that!” Then she made the sign of the cross and charged me an extra penny so that I didn’t owe 666. “You can’t have that karma following you around all day.”
Oh sad. Now I feel bad that I’ve cursed people with Chinese food before. Hopefully the curse hasn’t been anything that a little Tums can’t fix, though. 😛
i can’t believe she actually did that. she charged you an extra penny for her own superstitions! if she had a cent for every time she did that…
Why didn’t she charge you $6.65 in the interest of saving your soul and your money? Fucking capitalist pigs.
You know, I briefly wondered that too.
But I mean, it’s a penny… I don’t really care.
My friend Walter K. W. paid his annual auto insurance for about three years walking around and asking each person he met whether he could borrow a penny — sometimes asking me several times a day.
At one time…Walter owned two 1956 Chevy BelAires — one just for parts; and at another time, of only 50 Jowett Jupiters (British) he owned two, one for parts: he paid for these cars with (you guessed it!) pennies.
A soul saved is a penny…spent?
Christmas is coming,
the goose is getting fat.
Have you got a penny
for an old man’s hat!
If you haven’t got a penny,
then a ha’penny’ll do.
If you haven’t go a ha’penny,
the God Bless You!
See how everything is connected? Snow!!!! and the Devil’s Lunch Order…
Quite amusing story!
That’s really funny, because a few minutes ago i was going through this huge database of grant funds, and there was one grant for $666,000. i must say, i was a little freaked out. the rest of the grants are for like 500,000 or 250,000.
