MUAHAHAHA, my most delightfully evil
act in weeks.
I keep a whole gigantic pile of loose change on top of my scanner
for when I need it. Today, I needed to get a few envelopes and stamps
at the post office, so I threw a whole bunch of coins into a mug and
walked over to buy them. When I got to the post office, there were
only a few people waiting in line. For some reason, though, by the
time I got up to the counter there were at least twenty-five customers
waiting behind me.
The total for my purchases was a whopping 76 cents. Despite the
fact that I had a bunch of quarters in the other pocket, and despite
the fact that even if I didn't want to use my quarters I had a bunch of
bills in my wallet, I decided to pay with the loose change...
...entirely in pennies...
...of which there were over 200 in my mug...
...and which I hadn't counted out in advance.
And so, I stood there at the counter counting out 76 cents in pennies
one by one. I'm pretty sure if I had taken any longer (I considered
doublechecking) the senior citizen behind me would've smacked me with
Daily Evil: 6/10. It would've been higher if I had doublechecked,
perhaps dropping a few pennies on the floor halfway through so I'd have
to start over.
