I treated a friend of mine out for a meal for helping me move. He wanted to go to a buffet, it’s not my thing, but it was his treat after all so it’s his choice. When we got there, the place wasn’t going to open until one hour later, so I asked him if he could take me to Target because I needed to get a couple things. He recently purchased a new hybrid Nissan Altima (which is very niiice). I showed him the way to Target and I noticed that he was driving only 20 miles per hour. I ask him why was he driving SO slow and you know what he says?
“If I go over 20 mph my car starts using gas”
“So you’re just going to keep driving at 20 while everyone is zipping past you?”
And that’s exactly what he did. 20 mph all the way to Target… LOL
When we arrive at Target, he notices that it’s right along the freeway and says,
“We could have taken the freeway this whole time?”
“Well I wasn’t sure if you wanted to take the freeway or surface streets. But if we had taken the freeway you would have had to use your gas…”
“Oh… yeah well it’s better that we took the surface streets then”
As we were leaving Target, he tells me that he has his laptop and books with him to take to the buffet. I thought he was joking when he told me he planned on staying there until they close. He wasn’t. So, I had him stop by my place so I could get some stuff to occupy myself with as well. WE ENDED UP SPENDING 4 HOURS AT THE BUFFET. At the beginning, he got some pudding and he liked it. Hours later, he grabs SEVEN puddings back to the table only to realize that he didn’t like it. According to him, they didn’t mix that batch well enough so it was nasty. It was definitely out of the ordinary for me and an adventure but I am NEVER doing that again!
Well, this weekend IKEA is having that special where they will deduct your bill at the cafeteria off a purchase of $100+ of furniture. There’s some furniture that I’ve been meaning to buy there but needed a second person to help me so I just invited him to take advantage of that offer. Will be interesting to see how much stuff he puts on his tray(s) LOL. To be continued!
