The local Dollar General store used to sit right behind my house but they recently built a new store so that they could have adequate parking. Yesterday morning was their grand opening celebration. They were giving away a $10 gift card to the first 50 customers and I fully intended to be one of them. Hey ten bucks is ten bucks. I pulled in to their parking lot twenty five minutes before they were scheduled to open and there was already a line forming at the door. I may have been customer number 30 something. There was also a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $20 or more so I was going to take advantage of that too. I filled my basket, went to the register and wouldn't you know it, my total came to $19. GUM! Yep, I grabbed a few packs of gum and took that total over the mark. I paid a total of $5 and some odd cents for my purchases.
So who is a happy camper?
Why it's me of course. I even bought myself this cute little owl from the garden section.
