I swore I had more money

I wish that I got paid enough money so that I could lose track of how much small items cost.

Miss M: I'm just running over to the shop to grab some crisps, (chips for you non English readers) does anyone want some chips or chocolate?

This is a common desire in our office - in fact in all TV offices I've worked in - we all constantly crave sweets. I think it is because we have this strange idea that they'll help give us back our sanity. Not working quite yet.

Series Producer: Ah yes, could you grab me a diet coke?

Miss M: Sure thing, I don't have any spare change though so will need to get it from you

Series Producer: No problem. Hands me £2 I think that is enough, I can't remember but let me know if it is anymore



Does she earn so much money that £2 seems a small amount for a can of coke?

For those of you who don't live here a can of coke can cost you anywhere between £0.40 and £0.80 depending on which shop you get it from. For the record at this one it costs £0.65. Quite a bit less than £2.

I know I'm making a mountain out of a molehill but I am super broke at the moment so this has upset me slightly.

I want her bank balance.

Maybe she wanted a super sized diet coke?

I know how much a diet coke costs but I am guilty of throwing away a dollar here a dollar there. Sometimes I get something I don't really need justifying it's only $20 when I remember back to being a twentysomething and it was never ONLY $20 that was a large amount! Of course back then I could fill my gas tank with said $20 and now it will not even buy 5 gallons. :(

First off, as much as I enjoyed this post, it still wasn't your boobs.

Secondly, Mo' Money, Mo' Problems.

Or so I've heard.

@pdx - Ja ... are those even 2 quid?

@tricia - alright for some hey? ;)

@mike - You're becoming obsessed with my boobs.

They are flattered.

Mike said...

Miss M - I'm a heterosexual male. I'm not obsessed with your boobs, I'm obsessed with BOOBS.

That doesn't mean your boobs shouldn't be flattered. Boobs are just good ;)

Okay talk about a blog topic turn around... don't let the men get into your head! Anyway... I'm terrible at the whole a couple of bucks thing... and then when it's make-up ... I'm such a marketing hoar (sp?)! The worst is I have a rather arduous, beaurocratic process to do before the end of the month (but after pay day) that will ensure I'm in the red by the 1st of Aug (it will eat up more than half of what my bank account recieves)... luckily it's a once off... but if I didn't have to do it I'd actually be starting on the path to paying my dad and then financial stability from this month and not next... :(

you should have kept her change... and told her... you actually owe me another pound, stuff is so expensive these days!

just kidding! i feel your pain... i really really do ;)

kyknoord said...

Maybe she usually buys her diet coke at the airport snack bar?

leez said...

Did you keep the change?

Just asking...

Thats happened to me. I'd be going for coffee and my boss would hand me like a R10 for a R5 coffee and not want the change. Or rather buy the both of us coffee. Irritating. But profitable.

Now those should be classified as completely subdue th male species. Hey if you got it flaunt it!
