See this beauty? I am now a proud owner of a brand new Macbook Pro. Did I need a new computer? No. Did I even know that I was getting a new computer? No. Let me tell you a little story.
I work at Great Harvest Bread Company. Lately, I've been calling myself the Great Harvest Slave, mostly because I work more than I would like too, I give away free things all day (and no one says thank you) and I clean up after people...all of the time. Well, last week I was having a terrible time at work. I was supposed to get off at six but instead got off at eight. I was busy cleaning out a drink cooler, helping a new employee who doesn't realize she's a slave yet, and just trying to get everything done. During the middle of all this I heard a beep outside and realized Brandon had moved my car in front of the store because we have to park a block away, I chased after him but didn't catch him in time. I was a little confused why he ran but I got back to my work duties. Well, as I left the store and unlocked my car there was a Macbook Pro box sitting on my front seat! I was pretty shocked, I think I even said "he is in trouble" out loud.
Needless to say I was going to return it. I mean, that was a lot of money and it's not even my birthday or anything! But when I mentioned that to him he said how he had been planning it and couldn't wait to give it to me, and he only didn't give it to me at Christmas because we had set a budget. So, now I have a new computer and I love it.
Good thing for husbands who know how to guilt trip you into keeping a very nice, unnecessary present.
