I’m not going to chastise, because there’s obviously a lot of pain here, but this is exactly why the scouting motto is: BE PREPARED!!
you: a troop of girl scouts, peddling cookies that i wanted to buy. you asked me if i wanted to buy girl scout cookies. i said that i did, and asked what forms of payment you accepted. you paused, then replied spritely “cash or check!”
i had neither, and promised to return. you mentioned that you’d be there until 5pm. i went to 7-11 and purchased a bottle of water and a low-calorie-high-protein breakfast bar. knowing that the calorie deficit would be worth it when i bought those cookies! i got cash back with my purchase, in preparation. i was going to go on my lunch break, but yesterday was a BAD DAY and i ended up working through lunch, until 8pm. i was comforted by the thought that you’d be there today. and this time, i’d be ready. with my 10 dollars! to buy your caramel delights! or maybe thin mints. i was going to go with my GUT.
but you weren’t there. you weren’t fucking there. what kind of troop are you?
me: defeated & cookieless, i went to the CVS this morning. there were bags of valentines day candy on sale for 75 cents a piece. i bought hershey’s kisses and peanut butter cups. it’s not the same.
After 5 years my Mac PowerBook G4 still works great! Over the weekend I had a slight issue and I couldn’t get my iPhone to connect via my USB ports so I headed over to the Genius bar with my computer. They gave me a new phone and troubleshooted the problem with the ports. Then they advised I bck up my data before they troubleshoot any further. I back up my data and return the next day. After making a trip to the Genuis bar on Sunday and Monday everything was finally in working order until this morning when my headphones went out on one side. Today on my third trip to the Apple store I go to purchase new headphones and I mentioned how I really wished that the headphones were under warranty. That’s when the nice employee informed me that if the iPhone is still under warranty then she can swap my old ones for new ones free of charge! Score. Thanks Apple! xoxo
“Kindness covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”—Roger Ebert (via tulletulle) (via spectra) (via peachesbiensur) (via unicornology) (via lanaloves)
