Neither Sense Nor Cents

“I hope I have enough sense” I said as I fished in my wallet for bus fare. Enough sense to have put tomorrow’s fare directly into my wallet upon receiving it as cash back yesterday for when I needed it today. But I didn’t and was twenty cents short, so I had to pay in full dollar bills, a thirty cent tip to the driver.

As the last one off the bus I inquired of the driver, “Do you have a quarter I could ‘borrow’?”

“Sorry”, the driver said.

This poor drunken lady who for all I knew may well have been the very sort to sleep on Arlo Guthrie’s floor, told me, “You owe me a quarter because I asked for one”.

[page 254]

Make that thirty cents.
