Cheap Sunglasses

I got a black eye a few months ago. I covered it up with a pair of cheap sunglasses when I had to work. My black eye eventually went away, but the cheap sunglasses became part of my work wardrobe. They are my trademark now. My coworkers took notice and they started bringing me pairs of cheap sunglasses from various companies. They were all free glasses given away by various businesses to promote themselves. I have specs from Svedka, Smirnoff, Corona, Lagunitas, Jack Daniels, and Lyft to name a few. It was a collection that was never wanted but suddenly accumulated. It’s too late to turn back now. It’s weird because I don’t normally wear sunglasses outside of work. I’ll only rock a pair if I’m going to the beach or park for the day. I don’t wear them in my normal street attire. But they are on my face when I clock in and come off when I clock out. Everyone should have a pair of cheap sunglasses. Just make sure that they have UV protection. Any pair of sunglasses is completely worthless if they don’t block the sun. And never pay for a pair of designer sunglasses when you can raid the lost & found.

Free Tickets

Every now and then the universe decides that I need to have some fun and it rewards me with free tickets. Sometimes I get free concert tickets. Sometimes it’s movie tickets. And everyone knows that I’m a huge SF Giants fan, so I can usually snag free tickets from friends during baseball season. A free ticket is almost always a good thing. It allows you to escape from reality and the mundane for a few hours. You can’t complain about having a bad seat if you got a free ticket. It’s a better view than not being there. And it’s free so you’ll have more money to spend on food, booze, and souvenirs. And if you have extra free tickets, you can scalp those and have even more money for food, booze, and souvenirs. You should accept free tickets whenever the opportunity comes knocking.

Free Samples at Costco

One of the best things about Costco is the free samples. You walk around Costco and get rewarded with bite-sized snacks throughout the store. It’s always a surprise what you will get to try. Sometimes you get bagel dogs, sometimes it’s a type of yogurt, and if you’re lucky you get ice cream or something sweet. The free samples are great, but you start to get greedy. You’ll try to get a second helping of the microwave borscht. Something won’t be quite ready but you’ll linger around pretending not to wait by reading the labels of surrounding products that you’ll never buy. You’ll ask the sample-giver stupid questions, like if it’s gluten-free or low sodium. You don’t give a fuck. They know you don’t give a fuck.

I wonder if anyone has ever brought their own toothpick to Costco… That would be classy.
