Playing along with Airing My Dirty Laundry
she . . . got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey,
It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're
welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have
to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up (with her at Airing My Dirty Laundry) and that the post
you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post.
To be really excited to start watching Big Brother. Enough so that I actually tried talking my boss in to not scheduling me for closing shifts on those nights. (no it didn't work)
To be loving the summer months, even though during the day it is a bit hot in the house and out.
To realize I do love to wear dresses at work. WOW, imagine that. They are cooler, lighter and easier to deal with.
To know that even though I really, really, really want a dog, now is just not the time.
To want to rent an RV and visit some really cool USA travel destinations. Suggestions???
To be looking forward to seeing Katy Perry's movie Part Of Me in 3D. Oh yeah!! (yes, I know I am probably going alone)
To be jumping from one book to another, not really identifying with any of them.
BUT WAIT, DEBORAH HARKNESS'S SERIES
BOOK 2 IS COMING OUT JULY 9th!!!
The second book in the All Soul's Trilogy
is called Shadow of Night.
And yes, if you are wondering what
I will be doing July 10th and 11th.
Well, that is it.
I could tell I was completely and utterly tired. Way too tired to run any errands. Yet, I still did.
I did the best I could to keep pushing myself back to the front of the store so I could leave, instead of wander aimlessly around the store til I keeled over from tiredness. (you know how that is right? I always wander forever in stores when my brain is done)
Finally, made it to the cashier.
Right next to my credit card is a coupon for 5% off. As I pull out my card, she sees the coupon.
Cashier: Did you want me to scan that?
Me: No, it's only a $6 purchase. I don't want to use it today.
C: But you can use it all day.
Me: No I won't be back today. (it's after 7pm)
C: But you can use it over and over again all day.
Me: I really won't be back today.
C: But you can continuously use it in a 24 hr period.
Me: (pause and breath) I really will not be back today or tomorrow, so no.
C: But . . . and she walks away making noises like I am stupid.
Is it me? Really? Is it me?
WHY in blazes would I use a 5% coupon on a $6 purchase? 30 cents!! I completely understand I can use it all day long, but a) the day is already over and b) my next day will be insane at work and I am sure I will not be coming back. What kind of sense does that make to the cashier? What am I missing?
I personally would rather wait til my purchase is much higher to use it anyhow.
