What a Dollar will get you in New York

The other day, my friend, Toni and me were outside our office building having a smoke after lunch.

A woman walked up and asked to buy a cigarette. I didn’t have any and Toni told her she just have one, she didn’t have to pay for it. The woman smiled and
said, “No, its part of my quitting strategy. You have to take the money.” She preceded to hand Toni four quarters.

Toni said to me, “That just paid for my lunch.” And I thought to myself for $1.00 what’s better; a baked potato or a cigarette? You choose.
