The Wonderful World of Radom!

Real world oddness

Rate this Entry
So me and the bro go downtown to check out a movie at the good theater. "The Crazies" which was not too shabby. On our way in, a homeless dude picks me out of the half dozen people crossing the street and says "Excuse me, can you give me a twoonie?" which is our beloved national two dollar coin. I looked him in the eye and said "No". I didn't bother giving my body the pat-down you always see. Like people forget where they would carry their coins, if they had them. Maybe they're in my breast pocket? Nope. Lemme check my belly. Nope. Okay good, he's gone. So here's the wierd part, the homeless dude says "I appreciate your honesty, most people don't have that." and walks away.

So I just got compliments from a homeless guy who I didn't give money too. Huh. I'll take it I guess!

    It is an unfortunate name, comes from the name of our $1 coin the "loonie" which is called that because it has a picture of a loon on it. I guess we Canadians are just uncreative when it comes to naming money.

    At least the homeless people in Saskatoon aren't all that pushy. I once turned down a guy in Toronto when I was there for a holiday and he followed me for 5 blocks! Freaked me right out, I thought I was going to get stabbed.

    2 dollars?? wow

    i was stopped by a 'gimme' a few weeks ago, he only wanted 0.20 GBP though. I looked in his eyes and told him "you probably have more money than i do mate"

    works every time :)
