Dog-tired and slightly depressed. That's how I felt upon realizing the amount of workload at 08:00AM (I typically log out by 07:00AM). Most of my officemates had left the building and officially begun their weekend. It's another OT for the 8th business day in a row and an uneventful weekend in between. I've been swamped as if it were already the quarter-end!
Things started to light up when my teammate Heart approached me and helped me out in my contract preparation task. Remembering how it took her the entire shift to complete it the first time it was assigned to her, she easily empathized and gave me some tips. I somehow felt guilty for taking her time and asked for her weekend plans.
She was headed to South Mall for another shopping episode this week. She was wearing a pair of hot pink flats that she bought for only P299.75 and she wanted to get the same thing in dark blue. She even allowed me to try her shoes on, as if reading my mind that I'd like to know if they were comfortable enough. Ok, it's cheap and comfy. But do they have my size? Heart doesn't have the answers. There's only one way to find out.
Not for Heart, though. She missed to read this sweet news earlier; she ended up buying one pair while this sale is ongoing! Imagine how much she could have saved if she purchased both the hot pink and blue flats the first time she went there. I hate math, remember?
While my friend seems decisive, I was weighing my options. I'd want the hot pink flats. And the plain puta red. But, waaaaaait. There's more to choose from! Something worth P499.75 came into the picture!
So I reached the point that both Heart and the saleslady convinced me to buy the teal flats. That's already P499.75 and I should stop there. But my desire for the hot pink flats won't shut up. So Heart persevered to contact Fem again to probe if she wants us to get her a pair. Knowing Fem, she'll go for pinks and reds. I was right. She asked for the pink and red pairs, leaving me with nobody to split with for P399.75. Decisions, decisions!
So I've come to the conclusion that I should get all three pairs. Shelling out P899.50 for 3 comfortable pairs that I can't use for the upcoming rainy summer ain't a bad idea. I've been using the same bronze flats for ages and it could use some eternal repose, right? Lesson learned: buy many pairs that I can wear in rotation instead of being loyal (read: abusing) to only one. Aye?
P.S. I forgot to ask until when this sale will be valid. Sorry!
