Baby Brain...It's Starting!

I'm developing a bad case of baby brain. And learning to laugh at myself. A lot. :)

At some random point last night, I realized that $2.79 divided by two is NOT $1.79 and thus the math in my previous post was wrong. (Don't bother checking, I've already corrected it!) I originally posted that the salsa was $2.79, then BOGO free so each one was $1.79, so I received $0.21 overage after my $2 coupon. Uh, no. $2.79 divided by two is $1.39 meaning I received $0.61 overage, NOT $0.21. And yes, I did use a calculator the first time...why I didn't just look at the receipt is beyond me.

Even worse was my experience at the RedBox during lunch today. We rent movies from RedBox fairly frequently. At least once every couple weeks. And have been for probably a year or so. Never once have I had a problem returning a movie. Or have even had to think about the process of returning a movie. Until today. I walked up to the box, inserted the movie to be returned, but lo, and behold, RedBox wouldn't take my movie! It kept spitting it back out. I seriously tried it like 6 times thinking maybe it was a fluke (in CR, we say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results...uh, oh!).

Frustrated, I gave up and returned to my car but then promptly decided that I had to call RedBox. Maybe they could force the box to take my DVD back. After sitting on hold for about 5 minutes, a very nice guy came on the line and very politely informed me that I was inserting the DVD backwards. Wow. Today, I was one of those stupid people that customer service people deal with every day that can't figure out how to do a simple task. This pregnancy thing is humbling. And humorous. :)

I hate to tell you this, but the brain will never be the same. It will improve though!
