I have a confession.....but it was not a sin, and I don't need forgiveness!
I am not the least bit embarrassed to tell you this story. Who should be embarrassed?
I will tell you!
I took the girls to get milkshakes as a special treat a few days ago. I went through the drive-through at McDonalds and ordered 2 small vanillla milkshakes and pulled up to the window the pay.
The story goes something like this.
"Hi" I say to the friendly employee at the drive up window.
"Hey Hon," she says.
So far so good!
"That'll be $5.18," friendly employee says.
"Oh, that's not my order. I only ordered 2 small milkshakes," I say.
(it happens. sometimes orders get mixed up, I was understanding of the situation, no biggie)
"That is for the 2 milkshakes."
"How much are they?" Now I am starting to get confused.
"They are $2.59 each," friendly employee explains.
"For 2 SMALL milkshakes?!" I seriously couldn't believe my ears.
THIS IS THE PART THAT I AM NOT EMBARRASSED ABOUT!!
"I don't want them then," I say.
Surprised friendly employee says, "You don't want them?"
"No thank you," I say. I was polite as I refused to pay that price.
And then I drove away.
My little girl says, "Mama, where are our milkshakes?"
Don't worry people!
I still got my little ones milkshakes!! I'm not a monster! Just frugal!
I drove across the street to the Burger King where I ordered 2 small vanilla shakes off thier Value Menu for $1.49 a piece. Now that is more like it!!!
Everyone was happy!
The girls had thier shakes....and I had $2.20 extra in my pocket!!
You know what they say about a penny saved......
I am not ashamed! I am proud!
My daughters got thier special treat...and a little lesson about saving money!
Pretty FabuLESS if you ask me!!!
