I have a very good life. I am grateful for my health and my family that loves me. But there are little things in this world that just bug me.
I have a “rewards” card from a burrito shop near where I work. When you fill up the card, you get a free burrito. On Tuesdays they offer two stamps instead of the typical single stamp.
Today, which happened to be a Tuesday, my card only had one remaining unfilled box. So when I got my two stamps I had to ask for a second rewards card to hold the additional stamp. Now I have two reward cards in my wallet! Oh, the irritation! Now I have to carry around this ever so valuable free burrito indicator as well as the not so valuable extra piece of paper for as long as it takes for me to develop the craving for that particular lunch stop again. I don’t understand how other people can deal with this horrible inconvenience without outwardly wearing a constant look of frustration on their faces.
Of course, I am just joking. But there was, in fact, a measurable amount of time where in my mind I was going, “Damn, this sucks.”
I pushed through.
