Damn... missed my target

I screwed up. I meant to put up a post announcing myself at 666 user points, but I did one post too many, so this means I'll be at 668. Anyway, it just seemed like a benchmark, so I thought I'd call attention to it.

By the way, a few weeks ago, I was in the store and the lady in front of me wouldn't pay for her purchase because it was $6.66. She bought a pack of gum to change the total.

Congrats at the belated

Congrats at the belated 666th post!!!

and ya know...I think I might be tempted to pay for her purchase...or at least find out what she bought so I could get that total. 666 is my new favorite number!!
I remember back in my theist days, actually asking the telephone company for a diff number because there was a 666 in it...lol

Ok Ill stop rambling now....Sticking out tongue

I remember being weirded out

I remember being weirded out any time I saw a building with 666 in the address. There's one like that when you turn to exit off one of the highways on Long Island. I wonder if people who work in that building are extraordinarily freaky about it... or if they think it's really cool. Sticking out tongue Probably some of both.

I wonder what exactly she thought would happen if she paid for the purchase. Instant damnation?

I suppose it's the same logic used by certain builders who refused to put a 13th floor in a building. Even at a young age, I thought this made no sense. Even if you call it the 14th floor, it's still the freakin' 13th floor.

You should have told the woman it was too late; that merely by selecting items that added up to $6.66, she was already doomed.

At the local waffle house, a plain double cheeseburger, hashbrowns chunked and topped, and a coke is $6.66.

What do you think I order most often? Eye-wink
