So this morning started out GREAT! I was up and at ’em by 5 to workout, showered, got fancy and “did” my hair, and still had plenty of time to make myself an omelet and enjoy it while watching a little TV. Remarkably, I even had time to organize my wallet, where I found a “Free Large Coffee” coupon for Dunkin Donuts. And not one of those “Free Large coffee with a $5 breakfast sandwich” kind. This was the rare “no purchase necessary” kind. Normally I don’t stop for coffee on my way into work because we have coffee provided to us for free here (yes, I know how lucky I am!). However, since I was running early (crazy, right?) for once and had this coupon I decided to make the stop.
I pull up to the drive through and though there was only about two people in line, I had to wait a minute to order. Since I ended up right in front of a garbage can, I continued my productivity and voided the front seat of old coffee cups, receipts, and other miscellaneous trash…things were going great. Next thing I know, I’m thinking to myself “wait, where the hell do I order?”…yep I drove right by the speaker. In hindsight I should have realized this about 30 seconds earlier considering the person behind me gave me a quick beep, which I initially thought was a “It’s early and I’m cranky and late” beep, but was actually a “hey you missed the speaker” beep. In my defense, I was completely distracted by Courtney talking about Julianne Hough’s horrific childhood and Justin Bieber smoking pot. By the time I figured out what the hell was going on, there were people behind me so I couldn’t back up, so I just decided to roll up to the window and see what happened. I got to the window and the girl working tried to hand me a box of donuts, this is where I sheepishly had to explain that not only did I forget to order my coffee at the speaker, but I had forgotten to order my free coffee at the speaker…they must have loved me.
On a side note, later in my commute (which from this story sounds like its hours, but really its only 10 minutes) I saw this woman driving with her windows down…its 21 degrees. what the…Sometimes I really wonder what is wrong with people, and I’m not just talking about myself!
