Some people have an invisible target on their back where nothing goes right for them. Donny cannot afford a bigger car and needs much bigger trousers. The Donnys of the world cannot get a break.
Very well done in telling of this Donny's luck.
Best wishes,
Mary

Why can't people find the right size of car? When is shop at the supermarket or the stores, there are always large numbers of huge vans and extended cab trucks. Why do people need such large cars? Same thing with the small cars. Only very small people should have them. Was it really worth all that for a dime? Great description of the car and the reach for the dime. judi

    Thank you, Judi. Insult to injury, the *dime* was spit.

Sometimes we feel that the world is too small for us to fit into it. Sometimes the reverse is the case. Sometimes our senses betray us and we find that all that we presumed to be true was merely an illusion. In fact, all was just a lie, intended to make us feel small and unimportant.

I don't know which was worse: the spit on his fingertips or the cool breeze on his crotch. Of course, the spit will dry. This is actually two teeny stories, isn't it? The snugness in the car and the reaching for the dime. But like most all your stories, the reader walks away with a smile on his lips.

Hahaha and Ewww...Poor guy! Maybe next time he will think twice about picking up money!
What I like about this story:
The large, clear font, the sections of text are even, there are no visible errors and it's just cute! Your descriptive wording of getting in and out of the car...loved it.

That poor man! And he only wanted a dime and what a price to pay for that dime! It will take more than a dime's worth of thread to fix the pants. I didn't understand why there was "wet spit." The pavement is cold because it's winter? I guess maybe he should walk to work for exercise...

Poor Donny. His day doesn't get better. Not only is his vehicle a tight fit, his trousers are even tighter. He also has bad eyesight if he can't tell a wad of spit from a dime. Maybe he won't feel so cramped on the way home to change his pants.
