So, in the first month of this crazy work schedule, I was spending a fortune on coffee because my employer stocks something called “ground swill” in the breakroom. As I began to realize that all the benefits of working 90 hour weeks were being swallowed down my gullett, I decided to figure out how to make my own delicious coffee at work.
It took about a week and a half before my system paid for itself, but I did IT!
My coffee was gourmet, delicious and perfect!
THEN I discovered that amazon was selling a six pack of my fancy coffee, which worked out to about half the prices at the grocery store. THEN I discovered if I signed up to this “subscribe and save” thing amazon offers on grocery products, my gourmet coffee would be .50 cheaper… PER CAN! FIFTY CENTS!
All of this was wonderful and amazing, I was SOOOOO proud of myself… because, well, I’ve learned to set only the lowest of goals for myself. A few days went by and no coffee. A week. Still no coffee. THE HELL AMAZON??!?!
I logged in, and to my HORROR, discovered that when you subscribe and save, they make you wait a month for the first shipment!
My current can was about three quarters full, but I knew it wouldn’t last. I could cancel the subscribe and save, and neither subscribe nor save, but get my damn coffee in two days or… I could stretch out my supply for three and a half weeks!
This was a week ago. My can is currently less than a quarter full. But I can’t give up my subscription savings now! I only have two and half weeks to go.
So, I’ve started choking down the ground swill. I decided Monday-Wednesday would be gross coffee and then Thursday and Friday would be good coffee for as long as it lasts and then I’d just have to drink swill till my shipment arrived.
It all seems logical except for the part where I have to drink the very swill I had been trying to avoid from the very beginning!
It’s so hard being me.
