Discounted Lunch Date

Today I was offered a bonus secret shop of a bbq place. It’s the normal shop reimbursement plus $7! So I took the job and then my wife out on a date!

We ended up spending more than the reimbursement but we needed the time together and the discount will be such a blessing. We couldn’t really avoid to go out if not for the shop.

Thank God for opportunities like this!

1/2 Price Date Night

I decided to take my wife out on a date tonight to one of her favorite Mexican food places. It was bustling! We were a party of two, though, so got seated right away. We ordered and then waited. And waited. We were served our food by someone other than our waiter and then all through dinner no one came to check on us but this other guy. Our drinks were left unfilled and we were starting to make jokes about where our waitress went.

Finally, I asked the guy who kept coming over if he were the manager. He was one. I explained that our waitress had never come back to us since we placed our order. He immediately apologized and offered to take off half our check saying that he wants us to come back. I told him we definitely would and we love the place. Then he asked if we had ever tried their famous dessert. We had not because we are always too full to order dessert. Then he said he would get us one on him to try because it was the best!

Maybe dinner didn’t go how we planned it. We didn’t get drink refills. We had some frustration over waiting for a waitress who never came back. But in the end we got a half price dinner and a free dessert (that really was the best!)

Now I’m going to send in feedback to praise this manager who made our date night awesome! Thank him and thank God!

Free Pizza

Last week we got a deal offer in our email from one of the big pizza chains saying that if we bought a pizza from them for delivery within a time frame and enter the promo code at check out we would get another on them. We neglected to enter in the promo code when we bought the pizza so we were not sent the free code. Because I am big on feedback, I sent the pizza company a note saying that we purchased the pizza in the time frame but didn’t get the free pizza code. They responded acknowledging that we didn’t enter in the promo code but they decided to give us a free pizza anyway!

So tonight I’m going to date night with my wife and the kids are eating free pizza! Thank you God!

Fantasy Football Dinner

In our fantasy football league at church the winner of the regular season and the winner of the playoffs buys dinner for the losers of each. Unfortunately my team didn’t win but finished second worse after the playoffs, which meant just one spot out of the free dinners.

When I got to the streak house tonight for the year-end party I expected to have to buy, but both of the people who we getting the free dinners didn’t show so I was surprised to find that I got a free dinner!

Free streak dinner and great fellowship! Praise God!
