Happy 123456789 day! In honor of this great day, I tried to get a receipt with this historic timestamp. Here’s the adventure tweeted live at @spudart on twitter
I’m gonna buy a donut at Dunkin Donuts today and try to time it so my receipt says 04:05:06 07/08/09. Their receipts do include seconds.
Oh wait. First I’m gonna try to get a Dunkin Donuts receipt at 12:34:56 7/8/09, then i’ll try elsewhere for 04:05:06
Last minute change in receipt adventure–realized Michigan ave dunkin donuts will be crowded with slow tourists. Goin 2 trump tower DD
It’s 12:30 and I’m waiting outside trump tower dunkin donuts for it to be 12:34 http://yfrog.com/7gt5uj
Asked cashier what time their register says. It’s nine minutes slow. She finds this quest funny, I have a new ally in this adventure
I’m finding it odd that I’m tweeting about a time that has now passed which I’m still waiting to happen.
Suspiciously looking at anyone walking by, hoping they don’t ruin the timing of this quest. DO NOT ENTER THIS DUNKIN DONUTS! eep.
Holding my breath, here we go!
Cashier was great! She waited and watched the time on her register with me. Final result…
12:34:42 7/8/09 so close! 🙂 http://yfrog.com/0v7jlj
Oh, btw. Dunkin Donuts was intentional, because the round chocolate donut is the zero in the number sequence. 😉
Tried to get a 04:05:06 07/08/09 receipt, but discovered McDonalds uses Army time with no seconds. I got 16:01 07/09/09 :-\
Oh crud. Just realized that people are using the hashtag #123456789 for the sequential number day. Me too! Look at my live-tweets today!
