I was at my favorite cigarette store (my favorite because it has the cheapest cigarette prices) buying something other than cigarettes when a woman came and bought a pack of cigarettes. She paid for them with a whole lot of change! My thoughts drifted back to when I paid for my cigarettes with a whole lot of change simply because I didn't have anything else at the time. However her story was a little bit different than my "need cigarettes and I'll pay for it with all the coins that I can muster" story. She said that she kept all her loose change and when she felt like getting some cigarettes she used that change to buy them. This is a whole lot different from the reason why I used change to buy my cigarettes. Mine was more of a "desparate to have enough change to buy cigarettes" story.
So if you are a smoker and you think that its demeaning or embarrasing to pay for cigarettes with change you should know that there are people out there that pay for their cigarettes with change.
