Laredo has to be stuck in some kind of time warp to operate the way it does.
We found only one woman in the crowd who received a partial payment. She got some dollar bills and several rolls of coins but most were given a few boxes of chocolates and sent on their way.Don't get me wrong, I like chocolates. But the thing I like more than chocolate is the sound of money being directly deposited into my account at midnight on assigned Fridays. Actually the direct deposit doesn't make a sound because there's nobody around to hear it. But I digress.
I don't know. If I was given a roll of coins and chocolates in exchange for work, I might be encouraged to slap somebody. And that's OK because that's what happens in bizarro world. In that world, it's common for people to suggest paying a doctor with chickens in exchange for a physical.
Now excuse me while I go stand on my head and bark like a dog.
