    Pretend you are an alien and try to get a free soda from a fast food restaurant

This reminded me of a time that ecib and I showed up at a coney island around 2AM with just enough money to buy one hot dog.

ecib: Do you have, like a two-for-one deal on coney dogs?

girl behind counter: No.

ecib: Well, look, we have $2, I'm going to give it to you, and if we get two coney dogs for the price of one, that'd be cool.

girl behind counter: sigh... Order for two coney dogs.

This gets a badge because I showed it to kev and he laughed so deeply and heartedly the old guy drinking a half pint next to us almost fell out of his seat.

man, this thread is like a walk down shitty memory lane. reminds me of paying for gas with whatever spare change we could find in the floorboards

Been there.

"How much did you find?"

"A dollar thirty seven."

"Well, shit. That will get us to Blockbuster and back. It will not get us to the top of Pipeline."

"It'll get us halfway to the top - "

"And then we'll have to walk back down. I vote Blockbuster."

"But then we'll have no money."

like to take this opportunity to offer a resounding fuck you to the public transportation system of austin, texas, with whose (even grudging!) cooperation i could have avoided all of these problems

Spoiled city kid.

If we wanted to take a bus, we had to drive an hour, and then we were at the Greyhound station.

I'll take the label city kid because I love it so much, no matter what adjectives accompany it

My friend used to do a similar thing, he'd ask for the "nice guy discount"
