I was at a train station preparing to buy a RM6.90 ticket.
There wasn't anyone at the counter so I used the machine. Damn. I only had RM50.00 notes. So a previous experience taught me that the machine gives change in RM5.00 notes.
The train just arrived in the station. If I don't go now thats another 25 minutes of waiting.
So in it goes.
-slides RM50.00 in-
Nothing happens for about half a minute (hurry up, the train is leavinggg) and then suddenly endless clinking. You'd think I had won a jackpot. I felt a thousand stares behind me. I tried to keep it cool and I swept with my palm the coins into my bag. As I swept, the coins kept falling. Clink clink clink.
Finally, the coins stopped. Took the ticket and ran to the train. Just in time. Bag felt heavier with all that metal.
When I reached home I was thinking what to do with all this:
That's about RM43 there.
So then I built a nice little tower.
Then I demolished it. Not as satisfying as it could've been.
