All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved vampires, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a fictional city that was possibly a fictional version of the city of LC, some of my family and I were there in separate automobiles, and we parked in the parking lot of a fictional shopping center on the left side of the parking lot with a shopping mall on the right side of the parking lot.
My family had a cheap Halloween costume of The Joker from the new Suicide Squad film that has not even been released yet and a small purple bag of old coins that they wanted to sell or trade, and so I went inside a pawn shop on the shopping center side of the parking lot to see if they would buy or trade those items while my family went inside the shopping mall.
There were not many people inside the large pawn shop (which was larger, cleaner, better organized, nicer, and better lit than any pawn shop that I have ever been inside) and I saw several female workers/pawnbrokers and one of them reminded me of the actress Rose Leslie, and Mrs. Leslie and one or two other female workers stopped to help me; and I showed them the cheap Halloween costume of The Joker and the bag of old coins, and to my surprise they were impressed with the Halloween costume.
They told me that this Halloween costume was rare and that not many were made and Mrs. Leslie said that they would buy it and the small bag of old coins which they did not seem to may much attention to, I asked her about how much would the pay for it, and I heard Mrs. Leslie say $3,000 to my surprise; and so I said okay, and I started listening to her trying to figure out how this was going to work before making a final decision once we reached the counter.
Mrs. Leslie did not explain much but the amount of money that they were going to pay me suddenly dropped from $3,000 to $500, I was going to ask about this but I decided not to because even $500 was a lot of money for those items to me, but I did feel that maybe some of the coins were worth a lot and that I should get more money and so I wanted to ask a few more places before selling them to this pawn shop.
I told Mrs. Leslie this but she said that I had already agreed and that it was too late, I did not think that I had fully agreed yet and I said so but she kept saying that it was too late and that there was nothing that I could do, and I did not completely believe her but I decided to not waste time arguing about it anymore; and then Mrs. Leslie gave me a piece of paper that had the name and address and phone number of their pawn shop, the amount of $500, and she had me sign my name and write my phone number on it.
She told me that this was an IOU for $500 and that I could only use it at their pawn shop to buy things, I told her that this is not what I agreed to and that I had expected to be paid and that no one had explained that I would be getting an IOU that could only be used at their pawn shop, and Mrs. Leslie said that this is what we agreed to even though we had not.
I asked for the $500 in cash or check or money order or on a credit card or debit card, but Mrs. Leslie said that it would only be done as an IOU; and I argued a bit about this until I decided to give up for now until I could talk to my family about it, I got tricked and taken advantage of, but it was a learning experience.
I left with the IOU to find my family at the shopping mall but some of them were walking outside, I explained the situation to them, and then we went inside the shopping mall to get something to eat at a buffet restaurant if possible before stressing about the pawn shop situation; and inside the mall we saw and stopped to talk to my female cousins AE and PE who happened to be shopping at the mall, and maybe they had just finished eating at the mall.
I remember seeing several Chinese style buffet restaurants and several other buffet restaurants like Ryan’s Buffet, my cousins probably recommended one of the Chinese buffets but I felt more like trying Ryan’s Buffet or a similar type buffet, and the next thing that I can remember is being outside near or inside the pawn shop because my family wanted to try eating some submarine sandwiches inside a little restaurant in the shopping center area.
I wanted to eat at a buffet but I agreed to at least look at the submarine sandwich restaurant, we walked inside the restaurant which was small/narrow but long and clean, and I saw them making some sub sandwiches that looked pretty good; and so I was possibly going to try one, but I woke up as I was trying to decide what to do.
