I was at a ski resort and needed to pay for two lift tickets and ski rentals. The total came to over $100, and I asked if I could pay the bill with foreign currency. They wouldn’t accept foreign money even though I had three $300 foreign bills in my wallet. I wondered why I even had them.
I had to pick a chair lift as my home base, and wanted to pick #2 like everyone else. But it had been so long since I skied that I would probably spend all day on chair lift #3 or #7. After a lot of deliberation, I was told that the home chair supposedly didn’t matter.
I was still trying to decide when a black cloud rolled over the ski lodge and burst with lightning. The lodge owner wasn’t pleased and wanted it to go.
