Eff my life. I was laying in my comfortable W bed at home just a few minutes ago (shortly before 2AM) when a thought crossed my mind — “shoot, I forgot to enter the My Coke Rewards code from the Diet Coke I bought at the store today.” Coke issues rewards points with their drinks, and while they’re not super valuable I still do collect them, since I can’t bring myself to turn down any points. I ultimately convert them to Hilton HHonors points, and it makes me feel a bit better about my Diet Coke addiction (which I’ve cut back on considerably the past few weeks).
I have a flight tomorrow morning, so I decided to get out of bed and go to my fridge to get the piece of cardboard that has the code on it, and go to my computer to enter it. The code is worth maybe 10 cents, so I realize I’m being totally irrational getting up it, though points make us all do irrational things.
I go to the fridge and there’s no Diet Coke. Or the milk I bought today. Or Special K I bought. And then it dawned on me — I completely forgot to take the groceries out of my car from this afternoon.
I’m not sure what’s more concerning — the fact that I completely forgot about my groceries after taking a trip exclusively to the supermarket, or the fact that I only remembered about them because of a points code worth maybe 10 cents.
Either way, I need professional help…
