Sidetracked



A little more conversation

Mexican woman: What are these? *Holding up a gift card found in front of the register*

Me: That’s a gift card. People put money on them and then give them as gifts to friends or family.

Mexican woman: We do not have these in Guadalajara. I do not think they will work. How much money can you put on it?

Me: You can put as much as $500 on it.

Mexican woman: What is the minimum?

Me: Well, I guess you could put change on it if you wanted.

Mexican woman: Okay. I will take one. I would like to send it to my sister-in-law in New York City.  *She hands me the card as if I’m to send it for her*

Me: How much would you like to put on the card?

Mexican woman: Ten dollars… and two pennies!
