only in atlanta...

a 51 year old man (he told me his birthday was yesterday) walked up to me today in the wal-mart parking lot and asked if I had change for a "co-coal-ah."

in my head...
"serious" did he just ask me for change.....to buy a coke?  nice shoes, nice clothes.  just wanted a coke the day after his birthday.

awesome.

I made Derrick give a guy change in Charlotte, NC for a coke only because I had been sitting in the car watching him, and at first he asked for $1.35, then he got some change from some people and by the time Derrick got there, he only needed like 35 cents. So, I figured he legitimately wanted money for a coke.
