“Can I get $20 cashback?”
“Yep. Oh… sorry, we don’t do cash advances” [as customer hands cashier her Visa]
“Oh…. well my daughter wants to go to Starbucks.” [looks frustrated] [debit declines her extra $20]

Maybe it’s time a few of us made some lifestyle changes. I mean, this recession thing’s not exactly new anymore.

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
