Yesterday I had to take my car to the dealer. My husband said the key was hard to turn so he made an appointment, first thing Monday morning to have it fixed. I drive up to the service dept. door and it won’t open. The sign said to drive over the cord and the door automatically opens. I drove over the cord, it did not open. I back up and drove over the cord again. It still did not open. I get out of the car and go into a door and there is this long, long garage area and the service guys do not even look up, they are on the phone. They are at the other end of the long garage. I called out, “The door won’t open.” Some guy hears me and comes over and opens the door. He looked at the cord, this black think that looks like a hose, was in a crack in the concrete. “The cord fell in a crack”, he says. I got in my car and drove into the service area. I had to leave my car there to be looked at. My husband met me there in our truck. We go get in the truck and my husband said he needed to go to Pep Boys. We go to Pep Boys across town, because he wanted to go to that one. I sat in the vehicle and waited for him. When he was done I saw a McDonalds and said “Go there, I’m hungry.” He just kept driving. I wanted the $1 sausage on a English muffin. I was hungry and I had not eaten breakfast. I didn’t have time, I had to take my son to school and then go straight to the service dept. I waited forever for him to walk around Pep Boys and I wanted to eat. “Lets go try out the breakfast at Rail City casino.” They have this big sign that you can eat for $3.33 if you were born before 1964. It is a casino, not real big. We had eaten there once last year and didn’t like it, but I was willing to try it again. We were seated and I ordered to one egg, with hash brown potatoes and 2 slices of bacon and toast for $3.33. I also ordered a cup of coffee. I figured a cup of coffee was $1. I didn’t know because the waitress took the menu when we walked over to see the buffet that my husband wanted to get. They had a lot of breakfast items on the buffet. My husband had the buffet and so went to get his food. He had them make a yummy omelet, with ham and cheese and onions and tomatoes. He said “Have a bite, so he gave me a bite. It was really good. I waited a while till they brought me my order. The coffee was served in the smallest cup I ever had. I bet it was a 5 ounce cup. The food was cold. They must have made it and just let it sit there a while before they brought it out to me. I hate cold eggs or should I say egg since it was one. They coffee tasted awful. I started watching the Keno board and was marking the numbers that came up. I then told my husband to play a game with the numbers that came up a lot. He marked a keno ticket and played two games. The numbers didn’t come up. We didn’t win, we never do. The waitress brought the check. The coffee was $1.75. That made my breakfast $5.08. My husband’s buffet breakfast, which he had an omelet was $7.50. The menu said it was $5.50 because he kept saying his was almost the same cost as mine, but it wasn’t. The bacon I had was so fatty and tuff, I could not eat it. It cost $13.50 with tax plus tip. I asked the cashier why the menu said the buffet was $5.50 but they were charging $7.50. “Oh the buffet is $7.50, it is $5.50 for the players card, you have to be a silver or gold to get it for that price.” Great, I don’t have one of those. You have to gamble a lot to be a silver or gold. On the way out the door my husband went over to the $1 mega slot machine and played $3.
The wheels spun around and then the bar with a diamond came up in the middle. One flipped down on the line and one flipped up on the line. “You won!” He won $30. “Go cash out and quit playing.” He went and got his $30. The casino just paid for my yucky breakfast.
