Random kindness - random oops!

I had a coupon for a free sandwich at Chick-fil-a, so I ate there for lunch today.  When I was leaving, I realized that someone was about to back out of their parking spot with a coke sitting on the roof of their car.  I walked over to tell them, and the young lady driving was confused at first, then she realized what I was pointing at.  She had a couple of young kids in the back seat, so I'm sure she just forgot about it getting them into their car seats.

While I was out running errands, I went to Barnes and Noble to use a coupon I had there to get The Watchmen graphic novel.  When I went to pay, it said my card was declined.  At first I was confused because my credit card company had recently sent me a replacement card with a new number.  Then I saw that I had tried to pay with the new card.  When I activated the new card, I swapped the new and the old putting things back in my wallet.  Unfortunately, I shredded the wrong card just a few days back.  I had to call for yet another replacement card when I got back.

Rub some Tussin on It

I believe that the title of this post comes from a Chris Rock comedy skit.  I'll feel bad if I have the wrong commedian, but not overly bad.  Most of last week was lost to feeling miserable, except Wednesday, which was lost to Kroger brand Nyquil.  I must have looked really rough, because the clerk working the U-Scan lane gave me the senior discount.  The fact that I was using the U-Scan lane should have immediately disqualified me though.  There were a dozen seniors waiting in the express lane, but I was able to walk up to an empty scanner and check out immediately.  I'm mostly better now, but I'm still coughing.
