The 10p story
He grabbed a packet of croissants and headed to the queue. Seeing him with the bags of grocery, I offered to hold them while he make the payment.
"Why not I hold on to the the groceries while you go and pay?"
I shrugged. "Sure, why not?"
He dropped a handful of coins into my palm and I joined the queue. The croissant was £1.25. Looking at the coins, I found myself short of 10p. I dug into my coin pouch and found two 5pence coins.
Smiling to myself, I made the exact payment at the till.
When I found him, I returned the remaining coins.
"Whoa. I didn't know I had exactly £1.25!"
"Nah.. you were short of 10p. But not to worry. I had two 5p's.."
"Wow, I didn't know you're that generous."
I laughed and glared at him. "What? Is this what I am in your mind? A stingy woman?"
"No, I just can't stand it when you are stingy to yourself, alright?"
I guess he was right after all.
