Don't Make Me Write You a Letter!

It's been a really really long day. I left the house this morning before 7:30am, didn't get home until after 2:00, then left again tonight to wrap up some BirminghamMommy.com work with The Market and the Junior League. As I was leaving our meeting, it dawned on me that I never actually ate dinner. We had some chicken roll ups at Zoe's at about 11:00am this morning while we were waiting on our flyers to be printed. It was 9:00pm and I was starving.

I decided to hit up the Burger King because of their New Moon Promotion quality burgers. I got to the drive through and decided on the Value Meal, BK Burger Shots. 32 grams of fat, 105 milligrams of cholesterol, 1290 milligrams of sodium, sure to clog my arteries, and a New Moon Collectors cup... Can we say "Fanatic?" Yes we can. I ordered the 6 mini burgers that I didn't need, and upgraded my drink to the size of Lake Michigan all for the love of New Moon.

I pulled around to the window and could see my massive drink sitting on the counter. Not in a New Moon cup. In that instant I had to make a decision, play it cool and let it go, or make an idiot out of myself and ask why I didn't get a collectors cup... I paid, she gave me my change and as she handed me my colossal size soda, I did it, I asked why I wasn't getting the New Moon Collectors cup.

The girl explained that they had already sold out and apologized profusely. I was devastated, and then? A little peeved. I spent $8.00 on a facking meal I wouldn't normally have ordered, and a drink bigger than my head, all to get something they were out of and didn't bother to mention until I brought it up at the window after I had paid.

Me = Not Happy. Me = Too embarrassed about my excessive fan-ness to say another word.

I drove away sulking, wishing I would have thought to ask for a rain check or a crown.

I laughed through your post, but felt bad too. It's o.k. to be an adult fan. (I heart Hello Kitty.) I would take action...I'm just not sure what that would be.
*I emailed you....and I hope you got it, but just in case- email me. That is, if your not to busy plotting your revenge on B.K. :D
