When you start off telling a story that you think is extremely interesting, but as you keep talking, you realize it is actually very boring, this phrase can be thrown in at the end of the story to try and make it slightly better.

People always love a good "finding money" story.
Jane: "Oh my God the craziest thing happened to me over the weekend! I was walking down Main St, and I saw that the light ahead was about to change. So I had to run to cross the street and I just made it in time... And then I found five dollars!"

When you have said something utterly retarded this phrase can be added to the end of your statement thereby nullifying the fact that you have just made a complete jackass of yourself.

Some stories are so boring, even adding and then I found five dollars won't save them. Adding "and then I found five dollars and a bag of weed" to the end of your boring ass story, will validate for your friends all that time and facial expressiveness they just wasted listening to it, and they will remember why they are friends with you in the first place, because a friend with weed is a friend indeed.
"Oh man, Friday, I really wanted an egg salad sandwich and I was just obsessing about it and I was like, 'Man, I'm gonna make one of those.' So Saturday, I went out and got, like, a dozen eggs and then I boiled them all and I just, I spent, I dunno, probably three hours, like three and a half hours making, you know, the mayonnaise, and the onions and paprika and, you know, the necessary accoutrement. And then, by the time I was done, I didn't really feel like like eating it...and then I found five dollars and a bag of weed..."

"Bet you felt like eating the sandwich then! Oh man, when are we hanging out, Andy?"
