Day 551

I did not find any change today.

Although, when I was at the BP station getting some gas, went into the attached store to see if there was any change on the ground, and it is normally a good place to find change.

The guy working there was sweeping the floor, and was right near the door, so when I came in he asked me if he could help me find anything. So I asked for my normal item, which is so random, I've never found a gas station that has it. And it allows me to look around and walk out without buying anything. So much to my suprize that when I asked him to show me where they had Nacho Cheese Sunflower Seeds, just pointed me over to teh corner. YIKES.
So I walked over, checked them out, noticed they had no change on the floor, and said I would go out to my car to get money. At which point, I got in my truck and drove away, seedless and coinless!

Total for the Day - $0.00
Total for the Race - $191.86

I'm sad to admit, I do this, too. My item is a wide-mouthed bottle of Poland spring, a la Gatorade bottles. I've seen it only at one gas station, in upstate New York. I'd actually buy it, though, if a gas station had it.
