Just got back from unsuccessfully shopping for a pillow for my bed. I figured I would kill a few birds with one stone so I set out for a local department store but first I stopped at my pharmacy 5 minutes away to pick up meds but I discovered that I should have picked it up a week ago and now it it won’t help. Then I headed up the expressway to the store and I brought two gift cards I’ve had for ages. One was a Walmart gift card and the other was for a Mexican restaurant that was about 4 stores down from the store.
I figured I would do my shopping for the pillow and then stop and pick up some food to go because I thought I had $7 left on the restaurant card. Well, it didn’t go as planned. The department store didn’t sell pillows individually, only in packs of two and I only need one. On my way out I saw a display with dress socks and since my only pair has a hole in the toe of one of them I figured I would pick up a pack of three. But I looked at the line at the registers and it was so long that I said screw-it and just left.
Next I went to Walmart but their lines were terrible too. So I walked out. And when I went to the Mexican restaurant the cashier ran my card through their computer and he told me there was no balance on it. To cap a perfectly unsuccessful day I stopped at a gas station to use their restroom and the attendant told me the toilet was broken.
Now if my roommate goes crazy and beats me up and I run out of soda, and the washer and dryer are being used by a neighbor all night, I will be batting a 1.000 for the day.
