“So, uh, we still got like fifty-five minutes before our movie--hic--dyah, movie starts because, uh, umm, our dinner reservations, uh, were a little early and we didn't take that long eating so we're at the movie theater (hic) like fifty-five minutes before we actually need to watch the movie.

So, uh, I was like, hey look, I got a quarter in my little breast pocket here because, uh, I took the bus to work today because, umm, the weather wasn't too in--hic--interesting and I was like, fuck, I don't want to ride the bike, so, umm, [???] the bus to work, I haven't done that in three, four weeks now. It's a dollar twenty-five--hic--to ride the bus, but I, I always forget, is it a dollar twenty-five or is it a dollar-fifty? So I brought six quarters with me today, and then it turned out it was only a dollar twenty-five, so I've buh been carrying around this ex--hic--extra quarter all day, so now I'm sitting here at the movie theater, and I'm like, yo I have fifty-five minutes before the movie starts, maybe I'll go play a little videogame, but (a) all the video games look pretty fucking dumb, and (b) uhm, a single quarter doe--hic--doesn't do anything, can't even watch a single videogame, can't play a single videogame with a single quarter--so, like, some videogames are like a dollar and some video games are like two dollars... and I got a single quarter, and--hic--uh, that's pretty lame.

Oh, except for, Dina just came back and she's got like eight-hundred quarters or something, so uh, I think she wants to play videogames maybe? or like use those little claw things and grab like eight billion of those little uh--hic--uh, sponge-man-bob like stuffed animals, that'll probably take like eighteen tries to get 'em at two dollars so it's like, it's like a lot of money.

So um, yeah, I guess were gonna play some videogames now, but umn, they all look pretty dumb, so, I don't know how I feel about that... I'll probably play some race car. Alright, bye.”

it's $1.25 right now. We (SF) voted to up it to $1.50... but who knows when/if that'll actually go into effect.

You mean busses and video games in SF still use those primative forms of payment still used in the rest of the country? They don't take credit cards, blood, semen, or stock certificates?
