I got a free Starbucks last week for my birthday. I got a special coupon in the mail. I didn’t have time to get it on the actual day of my birthday, but it was just as tasty a few days later.
It occurs to me this week, however, that whenever I get Starbucks it is free Starbucks. This is because I rarely go, and when I do I use the Starbucks cards I got as gifts or prizes or etc.
It was fun, though, slapping that coupon down on the cashier’s counter. The cashier glared at me a little and did not offer me a birthday greeting.
