Walk into Subway. Chatting with the guy making my sandwich.
He rings me up. Gives me my usual 10% discount.
And then, “Oh yeah. Hey, did they give you a free sandwich yet?”
‘What!? No? Why?’
“My boss said to give you a free sandwich last week.” — (I’ve been away since last Wednesday) — “I’m going on vacation tomorrow, but when you come in next time, remind them to give you a free sandwich.”
[Note: I have no idea what I’ve done to deserve a free sandwich or a favor from the boss. Other than just be my usual unusual self. Perhaps he reviewed security camera footage and discovered that I always make faces at security cameras in the event someone actually reviews the footage. But really, who knows? In any case…]
It becomes clear to me now, I may not have any game when it comes to the ladies, but I have somehow become a master at attracting free or discounted food and coffee.
If only I could come up with a way to turn this ability into a viable business plan. I’d make millions!
