Subject: case quarter
This is in response to the query about the case quarter. I was
interested to see that no one had mentioned any definition that was even
remotely related to what my knowledge of case quarter.
One day a young boy walked up to my husband in a parking lot and asked,
"Hey, you got a case quater I kin have?" My husband replied, "No."
After the boy walked away, I asked David what a case quarter was; he
seemed to know exactly what the boy was asking for. "You know, a case
quarter," he replied, "He means a quarter, but the term came from someone
taking a case quarter with them before leaving the house in case he/she/they
need(s) to make a phone call."
In case your wondering, he was serious.
