If any of you have been checking the tally in my sidebar you'll see that my Rrroll-Up winnings this year are pathetic!!! Yes, you're reading that correctly. 1 coffee won out of 24 purchases...err 25 if you add this afternoon's 'Please Play Again' to the tally. Ugh!
The competitor in me (the one saying the next cup will be the big winner) wouldn't allow myself to take a competing coffee shop up on their offer...until this afternoon. After rolling up another 'Please Play Again' I took my losing cup, walked across the street to Country Style (CS) and traded in my losing Tim's cup for a free cup of yummy Country Style coffee. For this week only, CS is offering a free coffee for each losing Tim's cup that is turned in. Good way to bring in business at a time when their sales could decrease. I often buy CS coffee but during Roll-up time I'm normally loyal thru and thru to Tim's. Not today. I enjoyed a hot cup of CS coffee.
The competition at work is in full swing although so far there doesn't seem to be anyone running away with it. Dragging up the rear are Randy, Mark, myself and a few others. Randy is the keeper of the chart yet would you believe he's the only one of the group who hasn't won anything yet? His office is next to mine and you can often hear us whining to one another over the wall about our losing status this year.
He sent an email to the group with one simple picture and comment on it and within minutes the emails were a flying and a story had been formed. You could hear us chuckling throughout the office as each new comment/picture arrived. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did! (This is indicative of the fun, crazy people I work with!)
Randy: Why does Catherine keep walking by my desk and doing this all the time?
Cory: Because she saw you doing this:
Randy: And this is all I found:
LOL! We may not win free coffee and donuts very often but we sure have fun trying!
