Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits a Dollar All Stand Up For SOLSC Day 24
Our store was located in a back hall of the mall right next to the Orange Julius. Being next to an Orange Julius kept our hallway a flurry of traffic even on the slowest days. It was this flurry of traffic that sparked our idea. I honestly don't remember who came up with the idea, but someone suggested we super glue money in the middle of the hallway floor just outside our door.
So, we added more coins of a higher value, and we waited. Finally, an older gentleman stopped and worked to pick up the coins. After a few minutes, he conceded to the glue and walked away. We were shocked to see the gentleman return about ten minutes later carrying a pudding knife. He bent down, worked at the coins and victory, he had freed the coins, slid them into his pocket and walked away!
We laughed for days about our little plot and this man's determination. This is a story I have enjoyed sharing a good laugh, and as I write here for our SLOSC community, I see the many lessons I have learned from this adventure.
