Obama Supporter Tries to Stiff Mike's America for Change

Ah, but like the Treasury Secretary who doesn't pay his taxes it was just an honest mistake!

True story:

I was at the checkout of a grocery store on Hilton Head Island this afternoon and handed the cashier cash for my groceries. She put it in the drawer and handed me my bag. Here's a rough transcript of what followed:
Mike's America: "Wasn't I supposed to get some change with that ($15.47)?"

Cashier: "Oh, I'm sorry, I'm just so overwhelmed after yesterday."

Mike's America: "What was yesterday?" Thinking the store might have been crowded with people buying liquor with their welfare checks...

Cashier: "The Inauguration of course."

Mike's America: "Yep, they're still cleaning up the trash left behind. So much for a green inaugural."
It was then the smile left her face. I wish I had thought to remark: "Didn't Obama promise I'd get some change or do all I have is hope?" But you do what you can.
