Beer Bottles, 24
tag # 000931
By the end of the night at my inventory party, people started
tagging some ridiculous things, including this empty case of
Leinenkugel's beer.. In Iowa they charge a 5 cent deposit on
bottles so if returned you could stand to make $1.20 .If you
live in Michigan though you could make twice that..
When I first moved here I stayed with Margaret Stratton until
I found an apartment. And since I didn't have much money I ended
up eating her food and drinking her beer with little to no hope
of ever being able to pay her back.
The Beer dilemma..
Margaret drank Rolling Rock beer, which in the east goes for
about $4 a six pack, but here in the heartland they see it as
fancy beer and charge more like $6 a pack.. So this is where
the Dilemma comes in..
I was in the beer cooler at the Hy Vee, with the idea that
I would spend my last twenty dollars replacing the food and
beer that I consumed at Margaret's.. When I reached for the
Rolling Rock I noticed a beer special out of the corner of my
eye.. A case of Line's for $9. I immediately went into consumer
paralysis.. How could I pay $6 dollars for a six-pack when I
could get a full case for $9?
I ended up leaving the store empty handed.. I recently convinced
Margaret that PBR was a better beer than Rolling Rock, I will
have no problem paying her back now.
