Tag: Keep the Change


I had not planned to sell books and was not prepared to make change. The first man handed me a $20. “I’m sorry. I don’t have change,” I said. “Keep the change,” he responded. I was selling the book for $15. It retailed for $16.99. Why would anyone give me an extra $5 for a book swirled in my mind unable to take root and send a response to my mouth.
