The Quarterback Sneak

One of our local supermarkets, Aldi, requires you to insert a quarter to "'borrow" a cart. I have a quarter that I keep in my car for just such a purpose. After loading up the trunk with my purchases, I proceeded to bring my cart back to the rack in order to retreive my quarter. Halfway there I was intercepted by a gentleman who said "here, I'll take that, while holding out his hand to exchange my cart for a quarter. Or so I thought. When I opened my hand, there lay 2 dimes and a nickle. So uncool...


  1. wow, what would he have done if you weren't there?!!! Nice blog!!!

  2. he could have gone in to the checkout person and exchanged it for a quarter.
