Picking up the family carry out, and the young lady at the register is clearly new with not much of a clue, and the place is slammed. She is way flustered. So finally got my food about 15 after promised, and she’s apologizing profusely, because she’s convinced I’m about to rip her head off like some of the Karen’s in there. I just shrugged it off, told her she was cute as a button and that she was doing fine.
We must all be getting old. Cause I think everyone is complaining about that right now. I remember when gas was 79 cents a gallon. (Cheapest I ever paid for gas, for my personal vehicle was 99 cents a gallon. But I pumped gas for my parents and the price was much cheaper just a few years before I drove.) I remember when you could type a cent sign too. It was a C with an angled line through it that came after the number. Why is there no cent sign but there is a dollar sign?
How bout you old timer? What’s the cheapest gas price you remember? I’m going to guess you were somewhere around 50 cents a gallon. Love you CT88. Glad we bumped into each other tonight.
16.9 at the KAYO in Midtown, TN back in 1968/9. Lunch at school was .35c. Three or four of my friends and I would save our lunch money all week, take Friday off school, buy a tank of gas and case of PBR and hit the lake.
I had to take Algebra II at summer school because of those periodic vacations from school. Ms Hayes was hotter than two rats XXXXing in a wool sock so I did a bit more than endeavor to persevere.
My grandfather told me about filling up at the drug store at 6c/gal. Two tanks of gas for a quarter.
Publix (walking up to the hottest young chicks or MILFs)... "excuse me ma'am, I forgot my reading glasses, what is the sell by date on this?" Or... "pardon me miss, but do you have any clue where I'd find (some obscure item) I just can't seem to find it anywhere..."
It's amazing... they'll walk off from their own cart and leave it, just to help me. They're leading me up and down aisles and finding all of my items. It's kinda like the old Columbo TV show, just pretend to be hapless and needing help...
I got baby dolls escorting me throughout the store. It doesn't hurt that I'm handsome and charming and quick of wit. Old Guy Moves.
