Writers Block Monday
Mum was sitting in the lounge, thinking about her writers block. She didn't know what to post about, so she checked her mail. Real mail, not email to see what came in the post today.
Well last week she had been in the supermarket, and there was a big long line to get to the counter, so she picked up a magazine to browse through while she waited, cause an article interested her. Now she never usually does this, cause she thinks it is rude to read it if you aren't going to pay for it, and also when she buys a magazine she doesn't want one that has been thumbed through by someone else. So in the past 20 years, she might have only done it once.
Well today, in the mail, one company was thanking mum for her business with them by sending her a free magazine.. Guess which one she got?
Yup, you guessed it. The one that she thumbed through at the checkout counter. That will teach her. Now she'll never ever do that again.
So what do your folks do? Do they flick through the magazines at the checkout, or do they leave them?
