Reflections on a Wandering Life.....
Saturday, August 20, 2005
I was leaving the coffee bar tonight, and the cashier pointed to the list on the wall by the cash register. I have a "ba wu" priority card, which means that I pay 85% of the ticket price. They have a list by the cash register of people who are entitled to the 15% discount, so that staff members know who to give it to. I carry my card with me, but most of the time they don't ask for it. I was curious about this, but now I know why. I looked on the list, and sure enough, there was my card number. Next to it was written (in Chinese, of course) "Grandpa Marx."
