Cash, Check, or Corn?Posted: May 6, 2016

popcorn’s not a tip
Last night one of Ian’s customers gave him a bag of kettle corn as a tip. When he let the customer know that popcorn doesn’t pay our bills, the customer became upset that Ian didn’t appreciate the thought.
He sells his kettle corn at the farmer’s market; I suggested we go tomorrow and offer him some fried rice for another bag of popcorn.
That probably wouldn’t work. But it’d be funny.
I ate some when I got home from work tonight. It’s mediocre at best. I guarantee you he overcharges for his kettle corn.
And I just noticed a lovely black piece at the bottom. Yum.
