Entry 110: Drink Your Cough Syrup!
Yesterday I started getting a sore throat, to which I attributed to a Brisk lemon tea. It woke me up in the middle of the might, at 4am and 6am, and I tried to find cough drops to help. I couldn't find any, and I sure wasn't going to use any cough syrup, because that stuff tastes horrible.
Which gave me a flashback of when I was a kid...
Whenever I had a cough as a child, I hated drinking cough syrup because it tasted like medicine, and not a child's juicy drink. I'm certain that manufactures intended the medicine to taste slightly off to deter kids from ingesting too much, but those dumb kids ruined it for the rest of us.
So, I would pour my medicine down the drain and suffer with the cough, because that was a better alternative than a lingering taste of nastiness. Then that flashback reminded me of other times when selfish people ruin things for others, like at my job, for instance.
I work at Goodwill, which gets an abundance of donated treasures, whether it be top-tier clothes, antique furniture, or even LEGO sets that have never been opened! You would think that I have a great advantage of working in the warehouse, because I can see all the new things that get donated and I could eventually buy them after my shift, but that kind of thinking is what got that privilege taken away from us.
Now, none of the Goodwill employees can shop at their own store because people in the past abused the system. And to make matters worse, the store I work at is the "model" store because we get some of the best donations in the city. Humbug.
Anyways, end of rant. Find those cough drops instead.
