You know what really fires up the voices in my head?
No? Well that’s a good thing, because if you did know that would mean that you were able to read my thoughts. And if that were the case, I would be spending the rest of this blog explaining to you that I didn’t actually insult you because I didn’t actually say anything out loud. It’s not an insult if it stays in my head, right? And besides, that shirt looks nice on you.
Let’s get back on track.
You’ll find more and more often on web sites that sell stuff a box asking the question “Do you have a coupon?” or even more demanding, “Enter your money-saving code here”.
Well I don’t have one of your precious little coupon codes. I think I would like one though. Tell me little “cart checking out” web page, where would I have received this wonderful coupon of savings? Hello? Hello? Oh, I see. You’re not capable of answering that question. Silent treatment, huh?
What if there is no coupon code in existence? What if it’s just me that this website wants to charge full price? Maybe when someone else reaches their checkout moment, it’ll post a “20% savings automatically included” in that nifty coupon code text box of dreams.
I usually punch the words “bite me” in the coupon box—typing perhaps a little bit too dramatically.
The insulted web site often responds with “Inappropriate coupon code”.
And I smile, because that’s exactly what I was going for.
