    This sounds like an excuse. Make it happen! Believe it to be true and it will be so. Unleash the power of The Secret!

    My girlfriend scuffed the toe of my shoe today during my "lunch" break. She's definitely not getting any tonight.

    Not very happy with the wife at the moment. Over the weekend she comes to me all excited and informs me that Groupon is having a great deal on a B&B trip to a place in the Finger Lakes region of NY. She informs me that the offer is so great because we can use it any time over the next five years. I'm not really keen on taking the trip to begin with, but she's excited about it, so I say okay.

    Today she gets around to reading the fine print. You really only get the deal if you book a stay before 4/30/2012 and the stay has to be from Sunday through Tuesday (otherwise they apply your purchase towards a stay at regular rates). I don't want to waste to days of PTO to take a trip to a place I never wanted to go in the first place in early fucking spring.

    Good thing that you brought this up. My girlfriend bought that too. I was also, not thrilled with having to go, but now since I know this I guess our trip will be sooner. We should plan to go at the same time and get drunk at the bar together and sulk.

    ^ I found that most businesses are happy to honor deals like that outside of the dates or give you a credit towards another stay, etc... I would try to give the B&B a call and say "we'd like to stay with you but can you work with us here?"

    Edit: Oh wait, I lied she booked some trip in Long Island. I am going to tell her to look at it again though just in case...

    I'll be there 4/22-4/24. We can paint smiles on our faces as we drive totally shitfaced from winery to winery.


    The wife sent a list of dates from me to choose from. In my haste, I did not realize that they were from Sunday through Tuesday. I had just assumed that they were weekend dates. As they say, I have certainly made an ass out of me (not really sure who the you is in this scenario).

    It sounds like you have to BOOK it before 4/30

    The actual stay can probably be anything within their booking window....at least this is how it works with most groupons I have seen. As long as you have locked in your reservation, you are good.

    Honestly, I'd rather give her the money, however much she paid for it and not go at all. She's excited though. I'll put a smile on my face.

    At this point I don't even care anymore. I'm just going to use it as something to hold over her for being so retarded. We're planning a trip to NYC for the fall and there will be some major financial carnage and she won't be able to say shit about it.

    She can be like: "I don't know, that seems like a lot to pay for a jacket."

    and I'll be like: "Up bub bub...Finger Lakes. Remember that honey?"

    I really think Greece needs to put the disco fries aside, pull the grape leaves out of its ass and make a deal aready.

    Is this the SF "phrase of the day", ala Atlas Shrugged?
