Season 1 Episode 14 gives us some back story on Michael and his son Walt. Michael ranks right up there with yesterday’s survivors, Boone and Shannon, on Brian’s unlikeable Lostie List. Walt, the special the title of the episode alludes to, is alright and in the beginning very mysterious, like they were setting up something for him, but it never really went there.
Here is Reason #2 why I need to stick with getting even dollar amounts back with my debit card. First, for those of you just tuning in, I’ll remind you of Reason #1 (go read it now, it’s a little long, but I’ll wait.)
On our way to get our monthly haircut Donna wanted to stop at Walgreen’s, she had a couple coupons that were burning a hole in her pocket. Of the three, there was only one we ended up using, eight Halloween themed pencils for a buck With tax, $1.07. Donna asked for five or ten dollars cash back because she would need a few bucks in a couple days when she went out to lunch with her department. I figured if I just rounded up the bill to $10 that would do it. Donna agreed because that would give her some singles for a tip. I skillfully guided myself to the other amount screen for cash back while subtracting a dollar seven from ten. I typed in the amount I wanted back, hit OK and OK again. The cashier handed me my receipt and change and we headed for the door. When I looked down at the receipt total it was then that I realized the math tutoring from Jethro Bodine might have been a mistake.
I had asked for $8.83 back making my total debit purchase $9.90!
Oh, so close.
