Next Long Line

1:58 PM Friday, February 27, 2009

Now that the crazy lotto pot has been betted on and won, the lines at lotto outlets have become manageable. But guess where people are lining up next? Lining up for a long time that one would think it's another lotto outlet.

Money changers, of course! Especially those where exchange rates are good.

Had to go to one yesterday to have the dollars my Mom sent us exchanged. Was tempted to take a picture because I never saw a money changer outlet with such a line before... but was scared of offending the folks lined up. Some were obviously exchanging savings, some looked like balikbayans who are exchanging their hard-earned money.

Further sign of bad times? I hope not.
