|05:36 pm - A pocket full of gold coins. . .|
Today, I found myself with a pocket full of gold coins.
(This often happens when one leaves the post office.)
A sneaky, mischevious grin tugged at the corners of my mouth and sparkled in my eye as I left, though, because I could think only one thought:
"I am a Chaote, and I have a pocket full of gold coins."
My question to you all, all the people on my flist, is this:
"If you were a Chaote, and you had a pocket full of gold coins, what would you do?"
I'd make it a poll, but something tells me some answers might be longer than 255 characters. . .
(feel free to tell me, too, if this scene seems as . . . dangerous/mischevious/frightening to you as it does to me)

My favorite use for such coins is to leave them for tips when you eat out. You can leave a really lousy tip, less then 10% even, but many servers think the coins are so cool that they don't do the math. /only do this if you get lousy service, of course
Another idea that pops into my head is that, if you arrive before your coworkers, leave one on the seat of a random coworker each day for a week or so, let them try to rationalize any reason for them.
Both good ideas. I was already thinking about using them for tips, so good to know we're on the same page :)
And #2 there reminds me of the paperclip curse.
