C’mon BevMo And Some Super Shiny Screws

I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve been inside of a BevMo. The first time I was overwhelmed at the insane amount of alcohol they had. It didn’t stop there, I was also impressed with the selection of weird soda’s, root beer and ginger beers I had never heard of. The second time I went in there I was again overwhelmed, but not so much so that I didn’t walk out empty handed. I am not much of a drinker, *except for the Kahlua and milk I have every night before bed. Naturally, my first purchase was Kahlua, but because this was BevMo they offered Kahlua in flavors I had not even imagined. The one I chose was a French Vanilla flavor. With my first purchase at BevMo I was asked, as you often are at every freaking store, if I wanted to be part of their club. Since I have no friends I quickly said yes, daydreaming of all the club meetings and outings I’d be going on with my Kahlua drinking BevMo buddies. But alas, all I’ve gotten out of it are these offensive coupons.

$10 off, seriously? This coupon is offensive on so many levels. The phrase “$10 off” in bold lettering is somewhat enticing, but then you see that it only applies to wine purchases and after that you see that to receive the $10 off you have to spend $100. I’m no math expert, but that is only 10% off and giving people 10% off is such a joke I’d rather not be part of your dumb club. End rant.

Switching gears now…

Believe it or not I did a load of laundry last night and, like a little kid, I totally forgot to empty my pockets beforehand. When my kids clothes get washed you find gum wrappers, pennies, a pencil eraser and all sort of other little kid debris in the wash.

When I forget to empty my pockets you find super shiny screws and a quarter, which means I carry way more money than my kids.

So, let’s recap what we’ve learned. Club BevMo does not have Kahlua get togethers and their sales suck. And if you want shiny screws just throw them in the dirty clothes pile.

See ya!

* I don’t really have Kahlua and milk every night before bed. Just every other night.
