smokey sky devil
most days for both of us are strange at times, as are yours I'm sure.
today, he picked up a fare and drove the guy to his destination. despite the early hour, the fellow was already drunk. upon arrival at his home, the guy informed mark that he was $3 short but that he'd go to his apartment and get what he owed. after a few minutes, the fellow came back and told mark that he was locked out but that he could get it at the restaurant next door.
patiently, mark waited for the guy but by this time, he was pretty sure that he wasn't going to see the $3. eventually, the guy came back sans $3. he assured mark that he would pay what he owed him and began panhandling beside the cab. you have to admire his effort but mark cut his losses and left. mark was both amused and disgusted at the same time.
fortunately for me, as frustrating as things might get, I pretty much never have to wait for someone to panhandle for me to get paid.
compared to that, my day (which was actually pretty good) was like floating on a cloud. yikes.
so, how was your monday?
