So I went to Lidl yesterday to do the shopping, making sure I had the Euro coin for the trolley.
I’m walking over and there’s a guy walking back with his trolley so I do what – I assume – every person does and decide to save him the walk all the way back.
I sauntered up to him with my hand outstretched brandishing my shiny Euro coin. “Hi” I said chirpily, assuming he would fully understand the scenario that was about to take place. “Here, will I take your trolley?” I waved the Euro in his face. He looked at me a bit funny. Then he looked at the trolley. I’m sure only a couple of seconds passed but it felt like a lot longer. I’m standing there holding up my Euro like it’s something to behold and this oddball is sussing me out and keeps looking at his trolley! I’m holding my smile in place and thinking to myself “what in the name of jaysus is he doing why won’t he give me his feckin’ trolley…???!”
He looks at me one last time and shrugs, takes my Euro and off he goes. I take the trolley and go do my shopping thinking to myself what a weirdo yer man was being about his trolley.
Shopping done, I put it in the car and head back with the trolley. I click it in and out pops the Euro…….
Oh.. Shite… It’s a 2 Euro coin!
No WONDER he was acting so funny!
Here was me thinking this guy was a total freak when it was actually ME that went up to him waving a Euro coin in his face and more or less haggled the poor guy out of a Euro!
Don’t you hate when you think someone else is the nutjob and it’s actually you…………..
(PS Have Lidl changed to 2 Euro trolleys????? Safe to say I did NOT know this…!)
