Letters From the Editor

The Deli After Work

‘Listen, I gave you a twenty!’

The clerk takes a step backwards. ‘No, you didn’t. You gave me a ten. This is it right here.’

‘No, you switched it out. You took my twenty, and now you’re showing me a ten!’ the guy shot back. ‘You pocketed it!’

‘No, you gave me this ten-dollar bill, and this is it right here!’

‘Listen to me you motherfucker, I gave you a twenty. I just went to the ATM, and I got out sixty bucks, and I gave you a fucking twenty.’

‘You gave me a ten, and I’m showing it to you!’

‘I’m going to show you my fucking wallet, and show you that you’re fucking cheating me!’


(Looks in wallet.) ‘Oh, looks like I got all tens. The ATM gave me all tens. Weird. Sorry about that.’


‘Yeah. Well, have a nice weekend.’

‘You too.’
