The Lost Dollar

Since my last post I found 3 pennies. 1 was found at the TSA Check-Point in the Minneapolis airport. I can't remember where the other 2 were found. Guess my memory is slipping.

This Friday, after playing some pick-up hoops, I swung by Mr. Goodcents to pick up a small sub for lunch. (In my effort to shed 10-15 more pounds, I am only getting the kids meal when I go there for subs. A nice little 4 inch sub, not to bad, and pretty filling) As I walked out with my sub, I looked through my change, and saw 2 five dollar bills and 1 one dollar bill. I looked around and went back into the store looking for the dollar that was missing (The change was $12.65). After a short search, I figured that maybe the lady at the counter gave me the wrong amount and decided to move on with my day. As I was able to drive out, and employee came out holding a dollar and asked if that was what I was looking for. He said when I grabbed all my stuff, I guess it was left on the counter.

A very nice gesture and very ironic, since had the positions been reversed, that nice young kid would be a dollar short, and I would have an extra dollar added to my totals.

Total since last post - $0.03
Total for the Race - $268.11

I'm also trying to lose 10-15 pounds.

If time permits, you should write to that cashier's boss...

oh yeah, you should TOTALLY write to his boss! or, just call and ask for a manager and tell him/her how impressed you are with him :)

glad you got your dollar back!

Walking into work today, I found a quarter on the ground. A great start to hopefully a great day. I would never have thought much of it had I just not recently starting reading your blog.

Brian & Budgets - Thanks for the thoughts. I agree with both of you. I am going there today after I play some basketball, so I will see if I can track down his name and let his boss know.

Penny & beverly - Welcome and thanks for stopping by. Penny - congrats on the quarter find! That is a solid way to start your own change searching journey!
