But lately I've become a bit sloppy when paying. And failed to do my routine. This failure cost me $20 over the past week. I am less concerned about the $20 that I lost than my lack of discipline. That lack of discipline is how I got shorted the 2nd $10 bill.
Yes, I did tell both cashiers about my claim of a shortage, which they both denied. In the first case, I received a $20 bill for change at the Von's grocery. And when I was shorted the first time, that $20 bill was no longer in my wallet nor was the $10 bill from the change. I tried to tell the cashier of this shortage immediately. But the cashier walked away quickly, and I was not able to tell him about it until a few minutes later.
The second $10 bill shortage I did not find out about until I was seated at my table in the restaurant. I should have had a $10 bill in my wallet if I had received the right change.
Anyway, I am working to have the discipline to do my bill pay routine in the future.
My balcony has a cot
Last week I bought a camping type cot which is out on my balcony. Now, when it is warm inside my apartment at nite, I have the option of sleeping outside on this cot.
The cot also serves as a large chair. I never had a chair on the balcony before. I find that I am out there a lot, now that I have a comfortable place to sit. A good place to view the little forest in the lot below me. Also, to view the hummingbirds which come to my balcony for their sweet nectar.
George on the new cot.
