have you ever went to buy something but came up short!?

It has happened to me a couple of times like when I went to buy a Wii and it was the last one in stock and I was $20 short! and I was so mad because I waited in line for quite awhile and then got to the front all to find out I was $20 short!!(actually $18.79) I thought back to the other day where I stopped at Mcdonalds to get something to eat, and gave my friend $5. then took a cab home! I was so mad I cursed in front of everyone with "F***!!! GOD D****MIT!! F**** this S***" and stormed out of the store

some of the parents in the store were shocked!! others laughed. ..one of the worse days of my life...

but to end on a good note..finally did get me a wii!!! (but took another like month... )
and now always carry around my credit card!!

kinda did a search.... so if it's a dupe..then lock it

Haha man I'd be pissed if I waited for a long time then came up short on money. Anyways I never come up short with money because I make sure that I have atleast ten extra dollars incase anything happens. If I'm in line & I see that someone is short a couple of dollars/cents then I'll give them money.

When I was 11, we went to the theme park, I came up 2" short for the roller coaster. Damn you snoopy and your minimum height limit, your imposing stare, and your hand hovering just slightly above my head, DAMN YOU!

yes but usually only like a few cents or something and usually someone in line behind me gives me the change or the cashier is like never mind lol

Wow, that would suck. I always have my debit card handy, so I've never had that problem. But my debit card does have a limit on it. I have been a couple of cents short on purchases before though... I abuse the take-a-penny leave-a-penny system.

When you're hungry and don't have money at all, it's pretty much a living hell.

Yeah it did happen, but i was doing an errand. It did happen once, I saw an item that was real cheap so I wanted to get it.... but the price tag was from a different item and the prices were a lot in difference... thank God I checked the price before queuing up

Me and my girlfriend went on a date, and she wanted a panda. I had like $14 on me. The panda was pretty small, so I though I was good. Lies.The stupid panda was like $25. She look disappointed. It sucked.
