It's taken a few years to get my weekday ralk (run/walk) route down to an exact science. I know which spots have a high yield as opposed to the occasional penny. I am familiar with the schedules and busy times so I know where to hit first. Also, I know which of the morning people will smile and wave as opposed to the ones who snarl (avoided at all costs).
When my well-rehearsed ralk is disturbed for any reason it can cause great distress. My entire routine is thrown into a spin and my mind is likely to go all over the place instead of concentrating on shiny, round objects.
So you can imagine the extraordinary levels of discombobulation that I will be feeling for the next few weeks (months?) as I am forced to maneuver around all of this mess. Not to mention the lack of coinage that will be available for pickup due to decreased business in the area.
