Cash Only Please

We officially started our cash only plan. We are going to accelerate paying off debt and if we stick to this plan we will only have a house payment and a car payment by Christmas. Last night I went out with my friend CB to watch Mizzou take on OSU. We had hoped it would be Mizzou and OU. Well, at least CB did. Mizzou had a better chance against OSU. They won.

When it came time to pay I only had $15 and my total bill for drinks was $17.50. I know the servers here and when I gave Leon the $15 and a debit card I said I went over my cash limit and he could charge the extra to my debit card. He came back and had reduced my bill to $10.50 and gave me $4.50 back in change. I wasn't so cheap to keep the money so I tipped it. He took off my last 2 drinks. NICE.

My friend CB couldn't believe it and gave me a bit of a hard time. My defense was that I didn't ask for a deal, I just gave 2 forms of payment.

I didn't ask for anything special. I gave him $15 and my debit card. Got the debit card and $4.50 back.
